Dionne’s Duets Best of 2014

Legendary Dionne Warwick Brings Out the Best In Friends Old and New on All-Star Duets Project Feels So Good
Interview by A. Scott Galloway – Music Editor – The Urban Music Scene
In a season that has seen superstars such as Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson, Barbara Streisand and Barry Manilow releasing concept projects of collaborations and/or cover songs on major labels, Dionne Warwick’s all-star duets project Feels So Good on the independent Bright Music Records label is the qualitative “David” superior to all of those “Goliaths” put together. The reasons are the compatibility and sincerity of the performances – intimate offerings that resonate with warmth often missing in those other high wattage/low heat projects. And then there are the songs, many of them Burt Bacharach & Hal David chestnuts that only get better with time. Dionne is a master of duets who has enjoyed timeless hits be it with The Spinners on “Then Came You” in`74 or Jeffrey Osborne with ”Love Power” in`87 or even the four way collaboration “That’s What Friends Are For” with Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Gladys Knight.
