LADY GAGA AND TONY BEN­NETT – CHEEK TO CHEEK

DNA Magazine - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

Af­ter the chilly re­sponse to her Artpop al­bum (which some have un­kindly called Art­flop), Gaga switches gears again, as you might ex­pect. Fol­low­ing her team­ing with jazz leg­end Tony Ben­nett for a cover of The Lady Is A Tramp on one of his many duets al­bums, they’ve re­leased an en­tire al­bum of the stuff. Gaga is in fine voice and it’s nice to hear her singing proper songs with proper melodies and lyrics again. If you’re a fan of Rob­bie Wil­liams’ for­ays into the genre, or Michael Bublé’s re­cy­cling of the stan­dards, this is for you. It’s charm­ing, sweet and now even your Gran has a rea­son to say she quite likes that crazy Lady Gaga.
