Burt and Traincha - New Material

Post by Marcel »

Last year Burt and Traincha performed together at the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Together they did "Falling Out Of Love" as a tribute to the late Aretha Franklin. After their performance Burt and Traincha talked about doing another album with newer songs of him. Burt said to Traincha that he will send her some material of his newer songs. And now one year later Traincha said in our national newspaper today that she will do a third album together with Burt. However it is in his starts, because of the COVID-19, there is not a date planned about how and what? But lets fingers crossed that this will start very soon! In about 2,5 wks from now Burt will be 92 yrs young. Last year i was at the North Sea Jazz Festival and it was great to see Burt still performing live and the passion and drive he still has! We must cherish Burt. Thank you Burt for all those great songs and lets not forget that other great guy, Hal David. Hal was the modest. But Burt always took the most of the work like the arrangement and conducting. So that is why Burt was more in the spotlight then Hal. But one thing is for sure, there will never be a songwriting team as the calibre like Burt Bacharach and Hal David and i say never!

Kind regards,
Marcel :D
