Following their cover of “The Lady Is a Tramp,” Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga will be recording an album together, and a Jazz album at that. Gaga’s father called Bennett with the proposition on behalf of the pop star. Via Billboard:
“He said she told him that ‘I want to do a jazz album with Tony Bennett, a jazz album,’ ” Bennett recalls. “So that will be the next album after (‘Viva Duets’).”
The two will be working with arranger/orchestrator Marion Evans, though Bennett says that the song list is “secret.” Studio plans are still being determined.
“It’s going to really reaffirm that she’s one of the best jazz singers that anyone’s ever heard,” Bennett adds. The set will also let the ageless Bennett immerse himself once again in his very favorite musical genre.
Listen to Gaga getting swanky.
