I just received Burt’s newly revised official press bio, which I’ve uploaded as a PDF file for those who like that sort of thing.
Burt has added dates at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco on March 9 and at the Palazzo Mauro de André in Ravenna, Italy, on July 12, part of the 2006 Ravenna Festival. For his complete performance schedule, visit the On Tour page.
Burt Bacharach won the Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Album for At This Time tonight at the 48th annual Grammy Awards
. It was Burt’s sixth Grammy Award. In addition, Aretha Franklin picked up the award for Best Traditional R&B Performance for her recording of Burt’s “A House Is Not A Home” on So Amazing: An All-Star Tribute to Luther Vandross. Congratulations, Burt!
