The Highlights of a Fabulous Career This makes me want more Tony Bennett, especially the more jazz oriented tunes. I Love his phrasing, the emotion, and the warmth of his voice. Can live without some of the orchestration behind him, although his voice is still the most compelling thing, even with lots of background music going on behind him. He doesn't need a lot of embellishment. But this IS an anthology with highlights from his career. Orchestration is ok with the upbeat songs, is sometimes schmaltzy on the ballads, but who cares with that voice. All in all a nice addition to a collection and a very useful tool to help one shop for more. Some Liner notes would have been nice, to go with the musical history.
