Any great singers you wish you’d have worked with? Could you have worked with Elvis Presley, for example?
I doubt it, although he did record Any Day Now, and that’s one of those things where you think, “Great!”, and you hear it and it’s not so great. It was the same thing with Sinatra and the Count Basie band, with Quincy Jones producing. They did Wives and Lovers, which is in 3/4 time, but they did it in 4/4. I said, “Quincy, what happened?” He said: “The Basie band can’t play in 3/4.”
And Guardian subs please report for a retraining session. One involving smacked botties:
(4) Burt was married to Paula Stewart (1953-58), Angie Dickinson (1965-80), Carole Bayer Sager (1982-91) and has been married to Jane Hansen since 1983.
