In celebration of his 85th birthday, the legendary Tony Bennett released the critically acclaimed “Duets II”, which followed his Grammy-winning Duets CD. Bennett made music history with “Duets II” when it debuted at the top of the Billboard Album charts, making Bennett the oldest artist to ever achieve the number one spot. Featuring his greatest hits, performed by today’s biggest stars, “Duets II” was recorded live in studios from Los Angeles to London, New York to Italy, with Nashville in between. Joined by a diverse roster of contemporary artists, including Lady Gaga, John Mayer, Michael Buble, k.d. lang, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Queen Latifah, Norah Jones, Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, Faith Hill, Alejandro Sanz, Carrie Underwood and Amy Winehouse, in what became her last recording, the sessions were filmed to capture the magic of these performers singing with the master of the Great American Songbook: Tony Bennett.
