Burt Bacharach & Tonio K – Original Demos

Burt Bacharach & Tonio K ‘Original Demos’ showcases the sublime work of legendary songwriter Burt Bacharach with his partner in crime, celebrated lyricist Tonio K.

Burt Bacharach is one of the most important and influential composers of the 20th century with a songbook that reads like a soundtrack of our lives with timeless melodies including “The Look Of Love,” “Alfie,” “A House Is Not A Home,” “What’s New Pussycat,” “I Say A Little Prayer,” “Wishin’ And Hopin,” “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head” and a myriad of others.

Burt Bacharach & Tonio K ‘Original Demos’ presents a batch of great compositions co-written by Burt Bacharach and Tonio K, between 1995 and 2008. Although some of those songs were eventually recorded by important names, including Diane Schuur, Ron Isley, Randy Crawford and Dionne Warwick, the real treat is to listen to the original demos crafted by Mr. Bacharach and Señor K with the help of award-winning producers Stephan Oberhoff, Ted Perlman and Steve Deutsch.

Featured vocalists include Billy Valentine, John Pagano, Bil Champlin, Warren Wiebe, Donna Taylor, Brittney Bertier, Mimi Paley and Burt Bacharach himself.

Released in a limited edition of only 1000 copies.
