Bennett goes Gaga for new jazz album (Updated 10/4/2013)
Here's a pairing you probably never imagined. Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga have teamed up for a jazz album that will be released in January 2014.
Yes, you read that right. Bennett and Gaga are not only working together on the project, they've been hyping it all year and have been singing each other's praises since the duo collaborated back in 2011. In fact, the 87-year-old Bennett has been downright giddy in various interviews to promote the album. He has called Gaga the "Picasso of the entertainment world" and said they are "like brother and sister together."
That aforementioned collaboration between Bennett and Gaga came when the pair teamed up to record their take on "The Lady is a Tramp." On the same album, Bennett's "Duets II," he teamed with Amy Winehouse on "Body and Soul" for what would be the last recording she made before her death. It charted on the lower reaches of the Billboard Hot 100, making Bennett the oldest living artist to appear there, as well as the artist with the greatest span of appearances.
In the wake of the premature deaths of both Winehouse and Whitney Houston, Bennett called for the legalization of drugs in February 2012. In between the lobbying he managed to release "Viva Duets," an album of Latin American music duets. On October 31 he also performed "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" in front of more than 100,000 fans at a City Hall ceremony celebrating the World Series victory by the San Francisco Giants.
Bennett's memoir, "Life is a Gift: The Zen of Bennett," and a documentary film by his son Danny was also released, also titled "The Zen of Bennett."
