This time around, Stewart tackles songs popularized by the likes of Louie Armstrong, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra, including "What a Wonderful World" (featuring Wonder on harmonica), "For Sentimental Reasons" and "Night and Day." Parton lends her pipes to the holiday season seduction song "Baby, It's Cold Outside," while Midler and Clapton are aboard for "Manhattan" and "Blue Moon," respectively.
Stewart's previous standards collections, It Had to Be You (2002) and As Time Goes By (2003), earned the raspy-throated rocker quite a successful second career as a distinguished crooner, as they each sold more than two million copies.
