What the World Needs Now Is Burt Bacharach

De Amerikaanse pianist en componist Burt Bacharach (Kansas City (Missouri), 12 mei 1928) studeerde muziek aan McGill-universiteit en Mannes School of Music. In de jaren '50 en vroege jaren '60 was hij pianist en bandleider voor Marlene Dietrich.

Met de tekstdichter Hal David en anderen was hij verantwoordelijk voor talrijke bekend geworden nummers die onder meer gezongen werden door The Carpenters, Aretha Franklin, Jack Jones, Tom Jones, Dusty Springfield, Luther Vandross, Scott Walker en Dionne Warwick. Zijn muziek wordt veelal geclassificeerd als 'easy listening' en gewaardeerd voor de opvallende melodielijnen en licht klassiek georiënteerde stijl.
Burt Bacharach had 52 Top 40-hits. Daarnaast werden veel van de nummers opgepikt door jazzmusici zoals Stan Getz en Wes Montgomery.
Bacharach is viermaal getrouwd: met Paula Stewart, actrice Angie Dickinson, tekstschrijfster Carole Bayer Sager, en momenteel (2005) met Jane Hanson.

Bacharach maakte in 1998 het album Painted From Memory met Elvis Costello. Op At This Time (2005), dat als een protestalbum geldt, staan bijdragen van diezelfde Costello, Rufus Wainwright en Dr. Dre.
