CD Review - Tony Bennett - Viva Duets

About the CD
VIVA DUETS is the singer's third duets-themed project, following the platinum selling and critically praised DUETS and DUETS II albums. Featuring many top names in the Latin recording industry, VIVA DUETS finds Tony performing his greatest hits with a celebrated roster of artists including Marc Anthony, Miguel Bosé, Roberto Carlos, Ana Carolina, Chayanne, Franco De Vita, Gloria Estefan, Vicente Fernández, Maria Gadú, Juan Luis Guerra, Dani Martín, Romeo Santos, Thalía and Vicentico, with additional duet guests to be announced. A truly international endeavor, VIVA DUETS, features performances in English, Spanish and Portuguese with artists representing eight countries and three continents.

Earlier this month, two snippets from the album were premiered exclusively via Tony's official website. If you haven't heard them yet, take a listen now:

My Take on the CD
What a splendid surprise this CD was. Tony Bennett has a voice and style that no one else can duplicate.

This particular CD took some of the old favorite tunes like: THE BEST IS YET TO COME, THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT, THE GOOD LIFE, and more and added another famous singer to the recording.

As I said, each song highlighted Tony Bennett with another famous singer. Some of his duet partners were: Chayanne, Thalia, Christina Aguilera, Gloria Estefan to name a few.

I enjoyed each selection on the CD and so did my family who were present when I played it.

If you enjoy Tony Bennett, I believe you will enjoy this CD too. It would make a nice gift for someone after you purchase on for yourself.
