Carol Duboc, a platinum-selling vocalist, songwriter and arranger, will introduce her new CD Burt Bacharach Songbook in stores and online on August 18. On "Songbook," Duboc, who also serves as producer and arranger, will bring a jazz sensibility to a collection of contemporary pop classics by fellow Kansas City-born songwriter, Burt Bacharach and lyricist Hal David.

Selections on the disc range from a playful take on "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" to a paired down version of "Anyone Who Had a Heart." In addition to other Bacharach favorites, like "Walk on By," the disc includes one original track highlighting Duboc's work as a composer, "My Melody." Duboc is joined on the recording by world-renowned flautist, Hubert Laws as well as musicians Danny Embrey on guitar, Joe Cartwright on piano, Bob Bowman on bass, Tim Cambron on drums, and Luis Conte on percussion.

The artist's writing and arranging success has included, among other things, the song "This Word is All" on Patti LaBelle's Gems CD, which went Gold. Carol also penned the hit single "Never Do You Wrong" for Stephanie Mills, and the song "That Boy" on Jade's Jade To The Max CD, which attained Platinum status.
