“From the heart for the heart”
Celebrate Valentine’s weekend with the romantic music of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Writers of such 60s hits as “The Look of Love”, “This Guy’s In Love With You”, “Close to You”, “Alfie”, “Walk On By”, the duo collaborated on over a 100 songs and created the soundtrack to an era.
Bacharach’s music is marked by unusual chord progressions, influenced by jazz harmony, with striking syncopated rhythmic patterns, irregular phrasing, frequent modulation, and odd, changing meters. And Hal David’s lyrics are written straight from the heart.
Rob Fletcher has been transcribing these songs for over a year now in order to play this music from the heart for the heart. Because what the world needs now…is love, sweet love. Joining Rob Fletcher will be Draa Hobbs and Joe Whalen.
