The jazz legend has described Gaga as "wonderful" and a "great talent".

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have already "worked out" what they want to do for their collaborative jazz album.

The 86 year-old jazz legend and 'Judas' singer Gaga are expected to head into the studio later this year to lay down the record, after confirming plans for a team-up at the start of 2013.

Tony has now updated fans on the status of the project and says they "can't wait" to record together again, describing the record as a "big swing album".

"We're doing a big swing album and I'm looking forward to it," Tony said in an interview this week with The AP. "She's a wonderful person and a great talent.

"We have it all worked out already on paper and we'll just talking about it and we can't wait to do it," he added. "She's quite different.'
