Tony Bennett and Diana Krall celebrate their shared love of the music of George and Ira Gershwin on their new collaborative album.
LOVE IS HERE TO STAY is a subtle, sophisticated and beautifully rendered love letter to The Gershwins music and their status as one of the premiere songwriters of the American popular standard. It is a masterclass in vocal delivery and phrasing and the command that Bennett and Krall display of the material in both their duets and solo tracks makes it appear effortless, belying the honed skill of the vocalists. The duet tracks include S Wonderful, Ive Got Rhythm, They Cant Take That Away from Me and Fascinating Rhythm, among them. Fascinating Rhythm was Tony Bennetts first physical recording in 1949, made under his then stage name, Joe Bari, which he revisits as a duet with Krall for this project.
