1975's TONY BENNETT/BILL EVANS ALBUM turned out to be such a landmark recording in both artists' careers that a reunion was inevitable. Like their previous collaboration, TOGETHER AGAIN is strictly a duo recording, with only Bennett's unique voice and Evans' artful piano to keep each other company. Again like their previous album, nothing more is required. Evans' elegant, classically-influenced jazz phrasing and Bennett's unparalleled storytelling abilities are more than enough to get these tunes across.

On such selections as Rodgers and Hart's "You're Nearer" and the classic "You Don't Know What Love Is," both men take advantage of the sonic space around them to fully explore the melodic and harmonic potential of the tunes without ever straying from the heart of the songs. On "A Child Is Born," Bennett demonstrates his dynamic range by alternating between delicate near-whisper and stately, trumpet-like tones. Evans matches him step for step throughout the album, setting up a fluid, impressionistic backdrop for Bennett's poignant readings.
