Allan Harris and Takana Miyamoto pay homage to the iconic 1975 duet recording by Tony Bennett and Bill Evans.
I am excited to be releasing our new CD in tribute to the great Tony Bennett and Bill Evans. This CD is a project that I have been wanting to record for many years. You see back in the early '90s Tony Bennett became a mentor to me, he gave me some great lessons about putting together a show which helped me tremendously as I became a singer of the great American Songbook. I took those lessons to heart and went on my own journey these past many years. Now I finally feel like I'm ready to sing these songs he made famous through this iconic recording with jazz pianist Bill Evans.
Singing with Takana Miyamoto's beautiful piano accompaniment was a pleasure that's hard to express. Her feel for this music is from the soul, and she gently guided me along the way with her heart-felt playing. I feel blessed to have her with me on this recording and I also feel this is my best recording to date.
Through the support of KickStarter, we are able to actively seek funding to pay for the promotion of this CD. We will be working with some of the best people in the business to help us get it out there via radio and the media. Your support is very much appreciated by both Takana and I. We hope you enjoy coming on this journey with us.

Why did we change the name of the CD? We decided to change it because we wanted the title to be about us in the present instead of looking back to the past.
The CD name changed recently ... we decided to call it "Convergence." We'll post the cover soon!
