Music legend Tony Bennett is excited about re-teaming with the Mother Monster and says it will 'reaffirm she's one of the best.'
Tony Bennett has got his hands full as things fall into place for his new collaboration with pop superstar Lady GaGa. The "Fly Me to the Moon" crooner expressed his excitement for the project and said that he couldn't wait for the world to hear GaGa in a new light.
Bennett previously worked with the "Bad Romance" hitmaker in "The Lady Is a Tramp" for his album "Duets II". Bennett now reveals that throughout the course of the recording for "Tramp", the two of them formed a close relationship and had such a good time so they decided to head back to the recording studio.
In an interview with Billboard, Bennett recalled how GaGa's father, Joseph Germanotta, called him on his daughter's behalf while she was on tour in Australia and explained that GaGa wanted to do a jazz album with him. Bennett immediately accepted the idea saying, "You got it!" He added, "A lot of people don't know it, but she's a phenomenal jazz singer. It's going to really reaffirm that she's one of the best that anyone's ever heard."
Arranger and orchestrator, Marion Evans is already confirmed to work with the two artists on this new album, though details like title and track listing are still "secret" for now, said Bennett.
Bennett is busy promoting his new album "Viva Duets" and a book entitled "Life Is a Gift: The Zen of Bennett".
