THE ROUGH GUIDE TO BRAZILIAN JAZZ | ROUGH GUIDES (RGNET1345CD)
Dionne Warwick’s vocal artistry reaches from her voluminous deep register to soft, fragile high notes, mastering the entire range with almost unnerving ease. But more than just her strong, warm voice, Dionne’s magic is in the silky elegance and the secure delivery with which she tells a story. This is why she, composer Burt Bacharach and lyricist Hal David were able to become the pioneers of pop music that is now called “Middle of the Road”, meaning pop that is grippingly simple, but never trite. Sixty of her hits made it into the American charts and worldwide she has sold over 100 million albums.
