Various Arrangers : Jazz Burt Bacharach

Some of the great vocal jazz arrangers and one of the greatest modern songwriters! "The Look Of Love" - A cool Latin groove and great vocal writing make this Zegree chart a real standout! "What The World Needs Now" - Opening with a soulful soprano sax, this setting moves into a jazz waltz and then a driving 4/4 groove, returning to the jazz waltz for the final vocal build on the lyric: for everyone! "I Say a Little Prayer" - Michele Weir has given this 1967 pop hit by Dionne Warwick a fresh treatment that is ideal for jazz, pop and concert choirs! Solo and group, cascading vocal phrases and a contemporary keyboard part add interest! "A House Is Not a Home" - Philip Lawson, former lead baritone and arranger for the King's Singers has used his experience and talents to set this powerful Burt Bacharach ballad for concert choirs. In the style of the Luther Vandross rendition, this is a powerful concert closer. "Alfie" - arranged by the acclaimed vocal jazz educator Phil Mattson, this song and text is among the most meaningful in contemporary music. Rich harmonies highlight the powerful emotions inherent in the text.

Songlist: The Look Of Love, What The World Needs Now, I Say a Little Prayer, A House Is Not a Home, Alfie
