It's Tony Bennett & Amy Winehouse's "Body And Soul" Video

I never thought I'd be typing these words, but Tony Bennett's Duets II is probably the album I'm most looking forward to this fall (it's out on Tuesday, September 20). I did a writeup of the collaborative collection of jazzy standards over at Idolator, and we even got Tony to offer up a few words on working with Lady Gaga and, of course, Amy Winehouse:
“Recording with Amy was just so beautiful, and I knew after singing with her what a true artistic genius she was because she performed with total and complete honesty — that is a very rare quality.”
Below is Tony and Amy's video for "Body And Soul" (which is premiering today, on what would have been Winehouse's 28th birthday.) It's the last clip she shot before her death in July.
