“Antonia’s got the gift. She has good time. She sings in tune. She has a good spontaneous feeling for phrasing. And that is something that you either got it or you haven’t got it. There’s no way that you can teach that to somebody. If you got it, you got it, and Antonia’s got it.”
That’s no less an authority on vocal prowess than the legendary Tony Bennett, speaking about the vocal chops of one Antonia Bennett. And the DNA doesn’t fall far from the tree, as daughter Antonia showcases her wonderful intuitive interpretive style on standards like George and Ira Gershwin’s “But Not for Me” and Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II’s “All the Things You Are” on her soon-to-be-released breathtaking debut on the new Perseverance Records label, Embrace Me.
A full interview with Antonia will be coming soon to HRAC, but you can get a taste of how good she sounds right here.
