Album Review: "Whistling In The Dark––The Music of Burt Bacharach" by Denise Donatelli (8/10)

Savant Records • Producer: Larry Klein • Teaming up with legendary bassist/producer Larry Klein, Grammy nominated jazz vocalist Denise Donatelli finds fresh and unique ways to share her lifelong love of all things Bacharach on an exquisite, intimate and sparsely arranged collection that balances recognizable classics and sparkling obscurities. With the lone exception of “The Look of Love,” Donatelli, backed by a group of excellent musicians, uses her warm, soulful voice to convey the heartrending essence of the legendary songwriter’s genius for heartbreak.
