Tony Bennett, Diana Krall 'They Can't Take That Away From Me' makes CBC Music 'best new tracks'

Each week, CBC Music producers come together to highlight Canada's best new tracks.

Almost 25 years after jazz legend Tony Bennett performed this 1937 classic with Elvis Costello as part of his MTV Unplugged special, the crooner has put his spin on it with fellow jazz icon (and Costello's wife) Diana Krall. Written by George and Ira Gershwin for the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers film Shall We Dance, the smooth number has been covered by both Bennett and Krall in decades past, but follows Bennett's jaunty approach as part of their anticipated new Gershwin duets album Love is Here To Stay. It's an obvious standout in the collection, which also includes a version of Bennett's 1949 debut single "Fascinating Rhythm," and aids as a reminder as to why this pair were a match made in jazz heaven. - JH
