Ron Grainer (born August 11, 1922, Atherton, Queensland, Australia - died February 21, 1981, Cuckfield, Sussex, England) was an Australian television and film composer.

Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach first collaborated on "God Give Me Strength," a sweeping ballad that functioned as the centerpiece in Allison Anders' Grace of My Heart. It was a stunning song in the tradition of Bacharach's classic '60s work and it was successful enough that the composers decided to collaborate on a full album, Painted from Memory. Wisely, they chose to work within the stylistic parameters of Bacharach's '60s material, but Painted from Memory never sounds like a stylistic exercise. Instead, it's a return to form for both artists. Bacharach hasn't written such graceful, powerful melodies since his glory days, and Costello hasn't crafted such a fully realized album since King of America. It's a testament to both that even if the album is clearly in Bacharach's territory, it feels like a genuine collaboration.

Painted from Memory is a collaboration between Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach. The collaboration commenced with "God Give Me Strength", a commission for the 1996 film "Grace of My Heart". Apparently pleased with the result, the pair expanded the project to this full album, the first for Costello after an absence of two years, and for Bacharach after an absence of 21 years. Lyrics and music are co-credited to both Bacharach and Costello. "I Still Have That Other Girl" won a Grammy Award in 1998 for "Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals" for Bacharach and Costello.

This 1961 set has appeared under Eric Dolphy's name, but it is, in fact, bassist Ron Carter's date - his first as a leader. Carter and Dolphy had played together in Chico Hamilton's group and on Dolphy's important 1960 date Out There. Where? has elements in common with both, but is closer to Hamilton's late-'50s chamber jazz than to the more outward-bound Dolphy date. As on the Dolphy session, Carter is heard on cello for three of the six tracks. Carter's skill is undeniable, but his playing on Where? is a bit polite and monochromatic. The easygoing duet with George Duvivier, for example, is a quiet, back-porch conversation that makes few demands on either of these bass giants…

As the son of a minister, Ronald Lee Ward Jr. from an early age was blessed with a gift for music. From his first piano recital, it was apparent to see that he was extremely talented. Growing up in the hip hop/new jack swing and those familiar with the DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia) Go-Go era, a musical foundation was solidified, and thus a musician was born. His sound is a fresh blend of old school and new incorporating elements of Vintage Soul, Gospel, R&B and Jazz. Ron is an extraordinary songwriter, producer, pianist and a talented singer.

In the mid '70s, '50s nostalgia was alive and well. But in the '90s, retro trends ranged from '70s nostalgia to '40s nostalgia. It was amusing to see post-Baby Boomers wearing the bell bottoms and platform shoes of their Baby Boomer parents, and it was even more amusing to see them doing the lindy hop or the jitterbug (dances from their grandparents' youth!), wearing '40s attire and looking like they just stepped out of an old film-noir classic with Edward G. Robinson or James Cagney.
