The world renowned music of Burt Bacharach, tunes people can hum or whistle, has a charm and vivacity all on its own. His songs are performed by singers all over the world, and every one of his hit compositions, leave an indelible mark on the pop music scene for generations to come. Burt, a handsome young New Yorker is also a very accomplished arranger pianist and singer. Marlene Dietrich admires him not only as her conductor and arranger, but also as a man. With pride we present this album, beautifully performed by the SINGERS & CHORUS OF MANHATTAN, as a salute to the greatest contemporary composer of modern music. So relax, and listen enthralled, because here – Burt Bacharach is really – CLOSE TO YOU.
