Tony Bennett, Amy Winehouse – Body and Soul (from Duets II: The Great Performances)

Written by on August 3, 2022


Happy 96th birthday (yes 96!) to American singer Tony Bennett born 3 August 1926, who had the 1955 UK No.1 single ‘Stranger In Paradise’ and the 1965 UK No.25 single ‘I Left My Heart In San Francisco’. In 1998, Bennett made an unlikely but highly successful appearance on the final day of a mud-soaked Glastonbury Festival in the UK dressed in an immaculate suit and tie, his whole set on this occasion consisting of songs about the weather. Bennett and Amy Winehouse recorded the duet ‘Body and Soul’ in March 2011 – the final recording made by Winehouse before her death on July 23, 2011 at the age of 27. When the song charted on the Billboard Hot 100 it made Bennett, at age 85, the oldest living artist ever to chart on the Hot 100. https://youtu.be/_OFMkCeP6ok
