Presenting classics such as Walk On By, I Say A Little Prayer and the title track, Anyone Who Had A Heart, originally released in 1997, was an ARIA Award Nominee, ABC Listeners’ Choice and Best Australian CD of the year; this is testament to the calibre and popularity of the music on this release.

“With Joe Chindamo's ability to inject these lovely songs with the wealth of language unique to contemporary jazz musicians, Bacharach takes on a whole new dimension which is both highly accessible and highly artistic.” Tony Gould on Joe Chindamo
