Love Is Here to Stay is a collaborative album by Tony Bennett and Diana Krall, released on September 14, 2018, via Verve Records/Columbia Records.[3] The album features the New York-based jazz group the Bill Charlap Trio.[4]

Background[edit]

All songs in the album were written by George Gershwin. Bennett first recorded "Fascinating Rhythm" in 1949.[4] By recording the song again for Love Is Here to Stay, he received the Guinness World Records title for "longest time between the release of an original recording and a re-recording of the same single by the same artist."

Reception[edit]

Chris Pearson of The Times gave the album four stars out of five, commenting "Tony Bennett’s admirers are by now resigned to him making duet albums, even if he works best solo. This example is more palatable than most since it pairs him with Diana Krall, among the few younger singers to share his deep appreciation of the Great American Songbook. Moreover they are backed by the trio of the pianist Bill Charlap..."[2]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic stated " In the Bill Charlap Trio, the pair have empathetic support, keeping the proceedings both light and lush, helping to turn this album into a charming testament to endurance -- endurance of the Gershwin catalog, the collaboration between Krall and Bennett, and, especially, how Tony Bennett can still sound completely committed to songs he's spent decades singing".[1]
