Will DowningWill Downing ... CD
Universal, 1988. Used ... $5.99
The debut of greatness from Will Downing – an album that really sparkled in the late 80s musical galaxy, and which strongly updated an older style of richer soul from the 70s! Will's working here with equal parts influence from jazz and soul – inflected by work from talents that include Brian Jackson, Arthur Baker, Doug Wimbush, and Keith LeBlanc – held together mightily by the legendary Downing vocals! In world where so much mainstream soul seemed adrift, Will brought back the power of older male vocalists with a classic presence – one that didn't succumb to the easy cliches of the mid 80s mainstream, and which really helped raise the bar for generations to come. Titles include a great remake of Denice Williams' "Free", a surprising take on John Coltrane's "Love Supreme", and the tracks "Do You Remember Love", "Do You", "In My Dreams", "So You Wanna Be My Lover", "Security", and "Dancing In The Moonlight".

New Charlie Rouse, Benny Bailey, & OthersUpper Manhattan Jazz Society ... LP
Enja (Germany), 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great amalgamation of players – and a quintet with powers far beyond their hokey name! The group's working in a polished approach to post-bop – a bit like styles heard on some of the Timeless and Steeplechase sessions of the late 70s, but with a more directive approach that really pushes the strong tunes on the set. The quintet features Charlie Rouse on tenor, Benny Bailey on trumpet, Albert Dailey on piano, Buster Williams on bass, and Keith Copeland on drums – all working their way through longish tunes by composers that include John Hicks and Fritz Pauer, as well as Rouse and Dailey. The album features a beautiful take on Hicks' great tune "Naima's Love Song", plus the tracks "After The Morning", "Spelunke", "Lil Sherry", and "Mr McGhee". LP, Vinyl record album
