Crisp N' Fresh Vids: Dynamic Duos

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Today would have been Amy Winehouse's 28th birthday, and to commemorate that, the video for her collaboration with Tony Bennett has been released. Bennett is releasing his Duets II album, which features not only appearances by Winehouse, but other favorites like Natalie Cole, Mariah Carey, John Mayer, and Lady GaGa---among others, but their duetting on "Body and Soul" was one of interest for many as it is the last video Winehouse recorded. No doubt it is spooky seeing the two in London's Abbey Studios, as from the looks of things Winehouse looked to be back on the right track, looking healthy and sounding fantastic--- alas we know how this story ends. Still it is wonderful that Winehouse got a chance to record a wonderful duet with one of her idols. Tissues might be in order upon viewage.

And while we're on the subject of duets, Aloe Blacc and Alice Smith give us the last little glimpse and crackle of summer for their Caetano Veloso cover, "Baby". The song is off of the Red Hot + Rio 2 compilation, and it is a beautiful tropical tinged track that was one of the many tracks I missed soaking in this summer. So if you're still holding on to those summer days, take a little mind escape back with this vid. If you imagination is wild enough you can feel the sand between your toes, the breeze blowing water sprays on your face, and possibly taste the tang of a margarita or two. Yes, I really want to go to the beach and have a margarita, as if you couldn't already tell...
