The newly released There Will Never Be Another You features more songs from the Hampton-Bennett collaboration. Made in 1989, the album features a mix of instrumental numbers that alternate with selections featuring Bennett’s vocals. There are cover tunes and four original numbers written by Bennett and producer Hal S. Batt.
Batt gives the music a modern edge, whether the song is a swinging big band number, a blues tune, or a Latin-flavored version of "Bill Bailey." One of the original songs is "You Make My Heart Sing," which is followed by a dance remix of the song.
Hampton’s playing is superb throughout the album. The highlight, "Cookin’ In The Kitchen (aka Jumpin’ At The Mudhole), is essentially a six-minute long solo. There’s also a new swinging version of Hampton’s "Red Top." Other Hampton compositions on the CD are the high-energy "Beulah’s Boogie," and the gentle pop tune "Someday."
He recorded his part in a home studio in Miami, which provided a relaxed environment for him to work. As a result, he sounds loose and free to improvise. Collaborator Bennett has a pleasant, resonant voice. She’s got a cabaret-style delivery that works especially well on the big band tunes.
There is a second disc that features a 30-minute DVD that looks at the Hampton-Bennett partnership. It features some good live performance footage of Hampton and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album.
