Re: Jessica Radcliffe sings Bacharach at the Bull's Head - Gig Review

Apart from the usual suspects from Bacharach's repertoire - What The World Needs Now, The Look Of Love, I'll Never Fall in Love Again, Alfie, Close to You, Walk On By, This Guy's in Love With You, Wives And Lovers, A House is Not a Home and I Say A Little Prayer - she and her trio of fine jazz music...

Re: Jessica Radcliffe sings Bacharach, Bull's Head in Barnes

Here's a short video promo from a few years ago featuring Jessica singing 'East of the Sun, West of the Moon'. On this evidence she does have a beautiful tone to her voice.

Jessica Radcliffe sings Bacharach, Bull's Head in Barnes (including review)

The singer Jessica Radcliffe and her trio are performing an evening of Bacharach at the Bull's Head in Barnes on Sunday evening 17th of November. I remember seeing Jessica on the British TV quiz show The Chase a few years ago talking about how she wanted to further her career as a jazz singer. Here'...

Re: 'The Vampires of Camelon'

Blue, it sounds like a Bacharach pastiche. An item on BBC TV news a couple of days ago about an eco-friendly housing estate in Norwich winning an architecture award featured this instrumental piece from the 60s playing in the background for some inexplicable reason which despite being composed by w...

Re: Burt Bacharach and Joss Stone, London, July

Sadly Joss Stone's career has been on a downward trajectory for some years now but at least she's still touring and recording, unlike another British female singer with a distinctive voice who's fallen off the radar in recent years, Duffy, or as the media constantly referred to her, 'Welsh singer Du...

Re: Burt Bacharach and Joss Stone, London, July

Amateur video footage of Joss Stone with John Pagano on guitar performing The Look Of Love at one of this summer's London shows, followed by Bacharach explaining how Ursula Andress inspired the theme.

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Found a very interesting piece on YouTube: "Steve Allen´s Music Room". I found out that this show had 6 episodes and ran on the Disney Channel from 1984 - 1986. On show #3 the guests were Burt, his then wife Carole Bayer Sager and Anthony Newley. With a Big Band under the dircetion of Ter...

Re: With A Voice

The video at the beginning of this thread of 'With A Voice' being performed at a Bacharach concert in Italy last year has long since disappeared from YouTube but a friend has alerted me to the fact that John Pagano has posted a video on his Facebook page of a different performance of the song also r...

Re: Burt Bacharach and Joss Stone, London, July

......Interesting that David Joyce, the long-term synths player in Bacharach's touring band, got to sing 'Live To See Another Day'. Judging by his comments on this short video made a few years ago, David Joyce probably needed his arm twisting a little bit to make his debut as a featured singer for ...

Re: Burt Bacharach and Joss Stone, London, July

When I was reading through the weekly online update from London Jazz News I didn't expect to find a review of one of Bacharach's shows with Joss Stone, and a very good one at that.

Re: Burt Bacharach and Joss Stone, London, July

To counter the Arts Desk review, here's a write-up of the first of the two nights where the journalist is obviously a Joss Stone fan. Still, with all the "lounge" references and the statement about Bacharach having rested on his laurels after his 60s heyday, I don't think it's a great piec...

Re: Burt Bacharach and Joss Stone, London, July

I've just checked the set-list for the Festival Hall show in 2016 and the nine songs Joss Stone performed were Walk On By, The Look Of Love, I'll Never Fall In Love Again, Close To You, Wishin' and Hopin', One Less Bell To Answer, In Between The Heartaches, I Say A Little Prayer and I Just Don't Kno...
