LADY GAGA AND TONY BENNETT – CHEEK TO CHEEK
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.
