Try the Bill Evans and Tony Bennet disc, which is available on XRCD2.

He did an album in perhaps 1993 called "Steppin Out" that has excellent performances and fantastic sonics.
Around the same time, he issued an album dedicated to Sinatra that is sonically less impressive, but the songs and performances are lovely.
There are a million earlier albums to choose from. I frankly can't get too worked up about the Bill Evans colloboration.
Don't know about the best because I have only one:
Multi-Grammy winners Tony Bennett and k.d. lang duet on a selection of songs inspired by the legendary Louis Armstrong, including "What A Wonderful World", "La Vie En Rose", "Exactly Like You", "You Can Depend On Me."
Lee Musiker- Piano
Paul Langosch- Bass
Clayton Camern - Drums
Gray Sargent - Guitar
Special appearance by Scott Hamilton - tenor sax
it is with KD Lang, released 2003. I find it very enjoyable but don't know how it compares to the rest of Bennett's huge discography.
Oh, if you want to side track a little, have you listened to Paul Kuhn?
That one is fun too :-)
