James DayRepertoire ... CD
James Day Songs, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99
The repertoire here is as great as the lineup – positive, upbeat soul songs all written by James Day – and performed with help from a huge cast of talent from the contemporary and classic soul underground – including Maysa, U-Nam, Glenn Jones, Trina Broussard, U-Nam, Donnie, Audrey Wheeler, Tony Terry, Cool Million, Gavin Christopher, and others! Some of these are folks we haven't heard in years – and certainly not in a setting this great – as Day works with U-Nam, who co-produced the set, in a mode that's got the same warm mix of classic and contemporary that you'd find in the best music by Incognito! Titles include "Considered Delivered", "We Dance", "Don't Waste The Pretty", "Dance Again", "Repertoire", "Rewind", and "RSVP". CD

✨✧ Merry ClaytonMerry Clayton ... CD
Ode/Repertoire, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Righteous and rocking soul from Merry Clayton! The set was done in LA with arrangements by insiders that include Jerry Peters, Carole King, and Billy Preston – and features some tight and sometimes funky backing from players that include David T Walker, Wilton Felder, Paul Humphrey, and Curtis Amy. Some of the tunes are a bit too rock-soul for our taste, but there are a few tasty bits on here that we really like – including a hip Leon Ware tune called "Whatever", a nice cover of Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands", and Jerry Peters "Love Me Or Let Me Be Lonely". Other tracks include "Southern Man", "Same Old Story", "Walk On In", and "A Song For You". CD

Macklay/Reminick/Haydn/Fisher-LochheadSerious Business – Spektral Quartet (CD/blu-ray) ... CD
Sono Luminus, 2016. Used 2CD ... $4.99
A wonderful record from this important string quartet – a group who strike a fine balance between being playful and playing powerfully, and who have a really tremendous ear for unusual repertoire too! The cover and title might seem a bit gimmicky, but Spektral Quartet are far from that – as they really grab us right away with their unusual sense of string textures, and the greater sonic possibilities of the quartet – working here on some material commissioned especially for the group, and other compositions that they really transform in their performance. The set begins with the captivating "Many Many Cadences" – a piece that's exactly as the title describes – then moves into the "Ancestral Mousetrap", a suite of tracks that also features some text from Russell Edson performed by the group as they play. The album then makes an abrupt shift to Haydn's "String Quartet Op 33 No 2 – The Joke" – which is handled by the group with a style that's faithful to the writing, but also very individual as well – especially as it's followed by "Hack" – a long suite of very short tracks, which follows the "joke" thematically, as each section is titled after a comedian – "Sarah Silverman", "Lenny Bruce", "Dick Gregory", and so on – but all with individual performances that extrapolate the ideas of those performers through a modern string quartet interpretation.

✨✧ Percy FaithChinatown/Love Theme From Romeo & Juliet ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1969/1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two lesser-known instrumental albums from Percy Faith – issued here back to back on a single CD! Chinatown is from 1974 – and features a slight 70s twist on the Faith style of the 60s – maybe a subtle dose of the big band modes that Maynard Ferguson was using on a few of the tunes that get slightly groovy – mixed with more of that compressed string style on the mellower numbers – creating a balance that makes the album a bit more interesting than you might expect! A few of these tracks almost head towards funky big band modes, and the choice of repertoire is pretty great – with an excellent version of the "Chinatown" theme by Jerry Goldsmith – plus "Tubular Bells", "Moody", "Midnight At The Oasis", "I'm Gonna Go Fishin", and "Deep In The Morning". Love Theme From Romeo & Juliet is a late 60s charmer from Percy Faith – a record that begins with a remake of his classic hit "A Summer Place", then steps into a mix of cuts that include some surprisingly groovy choices! Faith really surprises us here with his swinging takes on some tunes – music that goes way past his buttoned-up style of a decade before – on tracks that include "Spinning Wheel", "Aquarius", "April Fools", "Hello Tomorrow", "Good Morning Starshine", "One", and a sweet take on Nilsson's "Without Her".

✨✧ VariousGidon Kremer – Complete Recordings On Deutsche Grammophon (22CD set) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 22CD ... Out Of Stock
Violinist Gidon Kremer is a musician whose solo and small group work has been crucial in transforming the face of classical performance in the past few decades – but he's also an equally stunning artist in a concerto setting, as you'll hear on this fantastic collection of his recordings for the Deutsche Grammophon and Philips label! Kremer's violin always has a bit of an edge – modern even in a familiar setting, and open to new phrasings and sounds that only seem to get richer, and bolder in front of an orchestra. And his ear for repertoire is equally thrilling – as the set not only features works by older giants like Bach, Beethoven, and Schubert – but also a huge range of material from modern and later composers – including Shnittke, Glass, Milhaud, Chausson, Vieuxtemps, Part, Lurie, and others – a range of compositions that make this set one of the most wide-ranging in styles of any collections we've seen like this. Conductors include Pierre Boulez, Leonard Bernstein, Claudio Abbado, Colin Davis, Riccardo Muti, Lorin Maazel, and even Kremer himself – and as with other packages from Deutsche Grammophon, this 22CD set features mini LP-styled replicas of all the original albums – complete with original album artwork, and additional notes in a booklet.
