Description

The collaboration between composer Burt Bacharach and lyricist Hal David produced some of the most memorable songs of the twentieth century. From their first hit "The Story of My Life," to classics like "Walk On By" and "What the World Need Now," their songs have delighted listeners for years, and have produced hits for Perry Como, Dionne Warwick, Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Herb Alpert, The Drifters, Cher, and many more. Utilizing uncommon time signatures and chord changes, and combining elements of pop, rock, Brazilian, and jazz, Bacharach's music goes above and beyond other popular pieces in terms of style, inventiveness, and intelligence. When paired with the tart, unsentimental, bittersweet lyrics of David, theirs are truly sophisticated songs that are well worth the numerous accolades they have garnered.

 

This album gives you the chance to play along with the Jack Six All-Star Orchestra, a group of fifteen excellent musicians including Ed Shaughnessy on drums and Dick Wellstood on piano. Listen to Roy Agee, an accomplished and in-demand trombonist, put his engaging and very personal spin on these songs, then take his place in the spotlight! Includes a newly engraved music book containing the solo part for each piece, printed on high-quality, acid-free ivory paper.

 

"Music Minus One takes the educational approach to jazz playing much like their approach to classical music; surround yourself with upper echelon musicians, and you can start sounding like them. The arrangements... are swinging, clever and intricate enough that you will definitely develop your ear while playing with these guys. The format of hearing your own part, and then playing the tune with your chance to sit in gives you something to aspire to sound and concept-wise. [...] I enjoyed the feeling of playing with these guys. Ah, dreams that come true!"

- George Harris, jazzweekly.com
