The collaboration between composer Burt Bacharach and lyricist Hal David produced some of the most memorable songs of the twentieth century. From their first hit "The Story of My Life," to classics like "Walk On By" and "What the World Need Now," their songs have delighted listeners for years, and have produced hits for Perry Como, Dionne Warwick, Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Herb Alpert, The Drifters, Cher, and many more. Utilizing uncommon time signatures and chord changes, and combining elements of pop, rock, Brazilian, and jazz, Bacharach's music goes above and beyond other popular pieces in terms of style, inventiveness, and intelligence. When paired with the tart, unsentimental, bittersweet lyrics of David, theirs are truly sophisticated songs that are well worth the numerous accolades they have garnered.

This album gives you the chance to play along with the Jack Six All-Star Orchestra, a group of fifteen excellent musicians including Ed Shaughnessy on drums and Dick Wellstood on piano. Listen to Tim Gordon, Grammy-nominated artist and educator give his own take on these songs, then take his place in the spotlight! Includes a newly engraved music book containing the solo part for each piece, printed on high-quality, acid-free ivory paper.

    A nice selection of playable songs, providing you are playing the Alto Sax or a Bb brass. I agree with another buyer the Tenor part is written waay low for the Tenor Sax, though it does sound pretty good on a Cornet.. And yes, there are a few mistakes in...

    the Tenor score as well.

    Poorly written for Tenor Sax. Choice of key signatures the problem for Tenor as it takes you down in the extremely low range much too often. Too many score mistakes found which had to be rewritten so some sort of performance could be achieved. This product not recommended!!
