Are you in the mood for a bit of jazz? Join Great Performances as they bring us two of the greatest artists in Tony Bennett and Diana Krall. The two will be performing some of the all-time classic hits written by the iconic songwriters George and Ira Gershwin.
Tony Bennett, a musical treasure at 92, delivers with spontaneity along with Diana Krall who is not unknown in the music world herself. Krall, a Grammy-winning jazz pianist and singer matches her well-known contralto vocals perfectly to Bennett's classical style that works smoothly to the beat of the piano and insturmentals around them.
Their performance is a piece of their new album, Love Is Here To Stay, which features songs from two of the best song writers of all time, the Gershwin borthers. Catch their duets as they sing favorites such as They Can't Take That Away From Me, I Got Rhythm, and Nice Work If You Can Get It.
