Together Again is a 1977 studio album by singer Tony Bennett, accompanied by jazz pianist Bill Evans. It was originally issued on Bennett's own Improv Records label, which went out of business later that year, but was subsequently reissued on Concord.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by William Ruhlman awarded the album 3 stars writing "If anything, Evans dominates this encounter more than he did the first, but it's still a good showcase for Bennett, too."[1]
