The dean of American pop vocalists took a different and exciting fork in the road for his third Duets album, recruiting the best Latin vocalists in the world, and rejuvenating classic material like "The Best Is Yet to Come" (featuring Chayanne), "For Once in My Life" (featuring Marc Anthony), "Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)" (featuring Gloria Estefan), "The Way You Look Tonight" (featuring Thal¡a), and "Return to Me" (featuring ranchera legend Vicente Fern ndez). Most of the charts are big band -- one of the exceptions being the highlight, his duet with Fern ndez -- but crossover fans will note that Bennett's English gives way to his duet partners' Spanish, an intriguing and successful choice. ~ John Bush
