Burt Bacharach 's second album will either delight or sorely disappoint modern listeners, depending upon how aware they are of who he really is. It's easy to forget, amidst his '90s revival, that Bacharach was never fundamentally a "rock" Lisa - Burt Bacharach - Reach Out . Reach Out was reissued injust as Bacharach 's star was rising among more mature rock listeners.
Parts of this album do aspire to a kind of big-band pop soulfulness. The rest is quasi-jazz of the light variety, very cleanly and carefully arranged by the composer, Lisa - Burt Bacharach - Reach Out tends to emphasize the obvious.
A lot of what is here is very basic, well played but displaying no dazzling interpretive details. That's often a risk when a composer interprets his own work -- frequently, it is the outside personality, the performance specialist rather than the composer, who picks up the hidden and unusual sides of a score. Some listeners will also be thrown by the presence of "Lisa," a throwback to pre-'60s pop. Reach Out isn't a Rosetta Stone to understanding his music, but it does present Bacharach 's vision of his work at its most straightforward, and it is enjoyable on its own terms, as a snapshot of his own sensibilities at Lili - Roman Butina - Feelings Br.
