I remember that Harold Land toured with him in his band at one time.

Like his new one with Bill Charlap. Wonderful version of "Lift Yourself Up." 

You buried the lede:  it's a collection of Jerome Kern songs.  And I agree that it's very good.

Regarding Land with Bennett, archive pickers should start looking for the TV commecial (videotaped, not filmed) for, iirc The Las Vegas Jazz Appreciation Society. I was working in Vegas with a traveling band, and that was one of the first things I saw when I truned the TV on, that commercial, with some brief but sweet Harold Land and some HITHISISTONYBENNETT Tony Bennett. Hopefully a copy exists somewhere in some form.

And I'm not sure at all, but I THINK maybe the Bennett/Land thing was on Carson once?

Von Freeman played with Milt Trenier, Harold Land played with Tony Bennett, don't tell me we don't like singers now, singers help people eat.

The album with Bill Charlap is just £2.99 at Amazon UK.
