Burt Bacharach & Daniel Tashian
Legends • 50m
On July 30th, the day before the release of their collaborative EP of original songs, Blue Umbrella, the GRAMMY Museum hosted a live online conversation in partnership with ASCAP and BMI featuring Burt Bacharach and Daniel Tashian. Bacharach is the three-time Academy Award-winning and GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award-winning composer, while Tashian is the writer/producer behind modern classics like Kacey Musgraves' Golden Hour (which earned him an Album of The Year GRAMMY in 2019). Recorded in Nashville, Blue Umbrella features Daniel on vocals and Burt on piano backed by some of the city’s finest musicians (Dennis Crouch, Fred Eltringham, Tom Bukovac, Jim Hoke). Filled with rich, jazzy chords that underpin restless, dynamic melodies and graceful, understated lyrics, the EP is a true blend of the songwriters' personalities, sensibilities and spirits.
