Legendary performer and 17-Time GRAMMY winner Tony Bennett, who celebrated his 86th birthday in August, releases his latest CD, TONY BENNETT: VIVA DUETS, worldwide on Monday, October 22nd on Columbia Records. VIVA DUETS, is the singer’s third duets-themed project, following the platinum selling and critically praised DUETS and DUETS II CDs. Featuring many top names in the Latin recording industry, VIVA DUETS finds Bennett performing his greatest hits with a celebrated roster of artists including Marc Anthony, Christina Aguilera, Ricardo Arjona, Chayanne, Franco De Vita, Gloria Estefan, Vicente Fernández, Juan Luis Guerra, Dani Martín, Romeo Santos, Thalía and Vicentico. A truly international endeavor, VIVA DUETS, features performances in English and Spanish, with artists representing nine countries and three continents.

Tony Bennett is known for recording duets live and VIVA DUETS was no exception, with sessions recorded in Ft. Lauderdale, New York, and in the case of famed Mexican performer Vicente Fernández, on his 400 acre ranch in Guadalajara. All of the tracks are from Bennett’s extensive hit catalog, with the exception of the duet with Vicente Fernández, which features an English/Spanish version of the song, "Return To Me, " originally recorded by Dean Martin. VIVA DUETS presents Bennett's classic songs with an international flavor that will generate widespread appeal for this unique multi-lingual presentation. Working with this unprecedented list of Latin artist, many of whom he met for the first time in the recording studio, Bennett commented, “Each of these artists were so warm and welcoming that there was an instant rapport. Latin music has always been about melody and harmony and a lot of soul, so there was a very close artistic connection with each duet guest. I am absolutely thrilled about the record.”

Tony’s first two duet projects, DUETS and DUETS II, both achieved platinum sales, multiple GRAMMY awards and were the best selling albums in his career to date. Bennett made music industry history when DUETS II entered Billboard’s Top 200 at the #1 position, making him the oldest artist, at the age of 85, to have a CD in the top spot. The DUETS project also had international acclaim, hitting the top of the charts in several countries including Portugal and Mexico.

    I love Tony Bennett and enjoyed Duets I and II; but the playlist

    I love Tony Bennett and enjoyed Duets I and II; but the playlist on this CD is the same as on Duets I & II - they are the same songs! Come On Tony! You've been singing for 60+ years, surely you have more tunes to sing?
