Burt Bacharach has been one of the most-honored and successful composers for six decades. His music continues to set industry records and creative standards. He grew up in New York City where he used to sneak into the clubs on 52nd Street to hear Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, two musicians he credits with having a major impact on his career.
His songs have been recorded by many jazz musicians, such as Stan Getz, Wes Montgomery, Diana Krall, McCoy Tyner and the Metropole Orchestra. Bacharach’s credits read like the world’s favorite radio stations’ playlist: “Alfie,” “Arthur’s Theme,” “Close To You,” “Do You Know The Way To San Jose,” “I Say A Little Prayer,” “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again,” “The Look of Love,” “This Guy’s In Love With You,” “Walk On By,” “What The World Needs Now Is Love,” are among his 48 Top 10 hits, nine #1 songs.
