As Good As It Gets ---- Get it it's Good!


Impressive Debut for Bubl?. Having seen and heard him sing at Charity Benefits, I just knew he was destined for success. And this album is "as good as it gets!" His story is great, but his talent is greater - this is an album to enjoy over and over and over. 'The way you look tonight' and 'for once in my life' are personal favorites. Classy arrangements and fantastic musicians compliment this super, young crooner. Yes, I am impressed! Warner Brothers has new star!

simple, peacefull, a masterpiece...


The only way I can describe "My Favorite Things" is by calling it 14 minutes of melodic ecstasy. After a beautifully simple intro by McCoy Tyner on piano, Coltrane takes this classic tune and turns it on the listener's ear. Coltrane interweaves standard licks with those of a different lollipop;only those licks that a true jazz enthusiast would appreciate. I am a person who appreciates brevity in one's message, but the lengthy tune Coltrane expels from his lungs and his heart could go on forever and never bore. We can't forget the rest of the album which entrances the listener. "Every Time We Say Goodbye" is a standard tune done many times, but I have yet to hear it done any more sweetly than John and his quartet. More soothing than the dentist's voice after a whiff of laughing gas, it makes me sentimental every time I hear it. "Summertime" is done in a more peppy style than normally heard, but that and "But Not For Me" round out this gem very nicely. A great starter for a Coltrane curiouso, and a wonderful addition to a seemingly unfinished jazz collector's puzzle.

Messin' with Major Tom...


I own all the Bowie "RCA" albums (his label from 69-80) and this is my absolute favourite. It is probably the best combo of art, rock, experimentalism and commercialism there is. If you want hits, 2 of his biggest are here, "Ashes to Ashes" and "Fashion". Hard edged rock? Check the title track and "Because You're Young". Arty experimentalism? "It's No Game" Pt 1, sung in Japanese. An accessible record that doesn't pander to the mainstream like "Let's Dance" did. Those interested in Bowie and already familiar with Ziggy would do well to start here. If possible get the Rykodisc re-issue which has bonus tracks the EMI version doesn't have.
