“a masterclass in vocal delivery”
Tony Bennett and Diana Krall celebrate their shared love of the music of George and Ira Gershwin on LOVE IS HERE TO STAY, set for a September 14th release on Verve Records/Columbia Records.
The two toured together in 2000 and recorded duets for two of Bennett’s albums (“Duets” and “Playin’ With My Friends”), but this marks their first full album project together. LOVE IS HERE TO STAY is out just in time for the 120th Anniversary of George Gershwin’s birthday which takes place on September 26th. Both multi-Grammy winning and platinum-selling artists, Bennett is the only artist at the ages of 85 and 88, respectively, to have an album debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and Krall is the only jazz artist to have eight albums debut at #1 on Billboard’s Jazz Albums chart.
Bennett is the most recent recipient of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.
