Tony Bennett / Bill Evans: The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album (2003)
Fantasy has dusted off The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album and cleaned it up considerably. One listen makes one think how little time has diminished the art of Tony Bennett, best illustrated in the quartet of songs which close the album. "My Foolish Heart" is plaintive and thoughtful. "Waltz for Debbie," an Evans composition with lyrics by Gene Lees, presents an opportunity for Bennett and Evans to become of like mind, settling into one another like scotch and soda. "But Beautiful" reminds the listener immediately why this song has long been an instrumentalist’s vehicle. Finally, "Days of Wine and Roses" could not have been captured more perfectly by anyone else. This is a superb reissue that demands to be heard.
