I just have to breathe (Burt Bacharach/Hal David)

Burt Bacharach worked with singers like Marlène Dietrich, the Carpenters, Aretha Franklin.  His most successful songs were sung by Dionne Warwicke. She recorded this song in 1972 for the first time.

This vocal big band arrangement with soft bones and harmon muted trompets sticks close to the character of the lyrics about getting older.  Listen to Dionne to get an impression.

If you want an mp3 of the score with computersamples, just let me know.
