    Bacharach is in a class by himself! Ever since Dusty Springfield, with her compelling and sultry rendition of one of my all-time favorites, I have remained mesmerized by its inescapable mood. Diana Krall adds to that mood! If you will now excuse me I must locate my wife and remind her of how much I love her……….

    This version just reminds me how great the original Dusty Springfield version was.
    Brings to mind Peter Jackson’s remake of King Kong.
    A big budget with modern effects but ultimately a pale copy of the original.
    Best to do a radical reinterpretation than try to imitate perfection (that’s why I can enjoy the 70’s kitchy Kong remake).
    Krall’s version is Musak (and plinking on the piano is a substitute for the sultry Stan Getz style sax bridge?).

    Yeah, it wouldn’t be the ’60’s without Burt Bacharach. All the great Dionne Warwick songs etc.
