For some, HERE I AM: ISLEY MEETS BACHARACH appears to be a meeting between Mr. Biggs, the character made famous in R. Kelly's music videos, and the Elvis Costello's piano-playing sideman from an Austin Powers movie. Others, however, will recognize that this project really represents a collaboration between the legendary Isley Brothers' ageless frontman and a compositional genius whose work with partner Hal David helped craft some of the most seminal songs in popular American music. The result of this pairing is a gorgeously recorded stroll through the Bacharach/David canon with the accompaniment of a 40-piece orchestra. In addition, Bacharach played piano, conducted, and created the new arrangements. Having waited nearly four decades to cut some of Bacharach's music, Isley is in fine form with his gorgeously pure vocals fitting hand in glove with these selections. Isley effortlessly moves from the melancholy sentiment of former girlfriend Dionne Warwick's "Alfie" to a radically reworked reading of "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" that turns the classic into a brand new song. When you consider well-known songs such as "The Look of Love," "Close to You," and "A House Is Not a Home" were all recorded live in the studio with a maximum of one or two takes, it's a wonder HERE I AM didn't happen sooner.
