There’s been a thrilling resurgence of old school soul, R&B, blues, and jazz in modern pop music. [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Adele[/lastfm] has captivated millions with her soulful ’60s voice; [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Amy Winehouse[/lastfm]‘s tragic death brought many to tears; artists like[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Lloyd[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bruno Mars[/lastfm] have enthralling elements of doo-wop in their Top 40 songs.

And from her interview with Carson Daly wherein[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Lady Gaga[/lastfm] admitted her extreme love for jazz, we know that Mother Monster is no stranger to complimenting a piano man with a little freestyle scatting. Her newest journey into the jazz scene is her fun duet with legendary lounge singer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Tony Bennett[/lastfm].

Looking like a teal-coiffed Marilyn Monroe,[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Lady Gaga[/lastfm]‘s spirited take on “The Lady Is A Tramp” with Tony Bennett for his Duets II album is a fantastic fusion of new and old.

Recently, Gaga did it again to help[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Sting[/lastfm] celebrate his 60th birthday by doing a jazzy cover of the[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Police[/lastfm]‘s “King of Pain.”

Is this just the beginning of newer, younger artists teaming up with older, more established ones?
