One of the greatest European jazz pianists Massimo Colombo has formed an entirely unique tribute album of 13 Burt Bacharach’s classics with 5 instrumentals exploring the Bacharach songs moods titled ‘We All Love Burt Bacharach’. Colombo has escaped the jazz album cliche by blending musical genres, featuring the likes of Weather Report drummer Peter Erskine and Yellowjackets member Bob Mintzer.
Conceived and produced by Giampaolo Pasquile and Michele Garruti for PLAY (Milan) and Orcle Records ltd (London), ‘We All Love Burt Bacharach’ has a smooth jazz sound but with strong elements of pop, funk and folk. Producers took inspiration from artists such as Chet Baker and Michael Buble, giving the album that edge that makes it stands out.
