Tony Bennett & Amy Winehouse

Photobucket Photobucket

It takes something truly special to be able to steal the spotlight from a star like Tony Bennett, but Amy Winehouse was able to do it, with an ease and vulnerability that was completely charming. The singer, who passed away two months ago, not only recorded a duet with Bennett, but also taped a video before she died. In it, she looked beautiful and healthy, a far cry from some of the videos of her final tour performances. The song is Body And Soul written in 1930, with lyrics by Edward Heyman, Robert Sour and Frank Eyton; and music by Johnny Green. It has been sung y countless truly legendary talents. Amy's vocals seem to be channeling the great Billie Holiday, yet remain completely and utterly Amy. Enjoy.

You can pre-order your copy of Tony's album, Duets II, on iTunes here. The list of artists with which he duets is simply stellar.

  1. This has been all over news here today, every bulletin. I've heard it a few times now. Please don't shoot me down here, but I'm not all that in love with it. I don't think it's great at all, maybe it will grow on me. Amy is to my mind, not anywhere near as good as she was, a couple of years ago.

  2. Well handsome, as you know I LOVE AMY WINEHOUSE, so Im all over this! And you know I'm still wearing black over her death. I won't be in purple for at least another two months yet!!! No but this ablum is excellent!
