Tony Bennett on Holiday is a 1997 studio album by Tony Bennett, recorded in tribute to Billie Holiday.[2]

In 1998 Bennett won his fifth Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance for his work on this album.

The final track, "God Bless the Child", was an electronically created "duet" with the long-dead Lady Day and Count Basie; it received poor notices, unlike the rest of the album.
