Painted From Memory–An Exercise in Saudade
I knew Burt Bacharach’s music–he had written for the Carpenters and his songs for Dione Warwick are legendary. His music was on the regular rotation on the easy listening radio station I would listen to to unwind. However, in full transparency, I did not know who Elvis Costello was, I had heard the name, but was not familiar with his music. I have always liked the mixing of genres and the blending of musical styles to create new music.
