Tony Bennett: 'Viva Duets'

This album is tolerable only because the playing is top notch and the 86-year-old Bennett's vocals are intact. Too bad the usually infallible Juan Luis Guerra sounds like a second-rate '60s Italian crooner, Chayanne's thin voice can't keep up with the Man, and bachata star Romeo Santos is just not in Bennett's league. The winners: Christina Aguilera (sounding as big, if not bigger, than Bennett), Vicente Fernández (with a ranchera version of "Return to Me"), and Argentina's Vicentico, singer for Los Fabulosos Cadillacs. Bennett is a cantante, and Vicentico a cantor. Together, they create magic.
