When Lonnie Liston Smith left the Miles Davis band in 1974 for a solo career, he was, like so many of his fellow alumni, embarking on a musical odyssey. For a committed fusioneer, he had no idea at the time that he was about to enter an abyss that it would take him the better part of two decades to return from. Looking back upon his catalog from the period, this is the only record that stands out – not only from his own work, but also from every sense of the word: It is fully a jazz album, and a completely funky soul-jazz disc as well. Of the seven compositions here, six are by Smith, and the lone cover is of the Horace Silver classic, "Peace." The lineup includes bassist Cecil McBee, soprano saxophonist David Hubbard, tenor saxophonist Donald Smith (who doubles on flute), drummer Art Gore, and percussionists Lawrence Killian, Michael Carvin, and Leopoldo. Smith plays both piano and electric keyboards and keeps his compositions on the jazzy side – breezy, open, and full of groove playing that occasionally falls over to the funk side of the fence.

Label: Westbound Records | Rel: 1998

From beyond the tyranny of the keyboard came records of epic disco like these two, utilizing full string orchestras and creating flights of fancy that today's button pushers could only dream of arranging. Mike Theodore was at the cutting edge of '70s disco and still sounds ahead of the pack! This is a welcome re-press of two legendary albums on one CD.

Michael Gandolfi (b. 1956) composes bright rhythmic and always interesting music. ...In this collection of recent works, he offers inventive music for three miscellaneous instruments of the classical orchestra. The most classical piece, with its standard three-movements, fast-slow-fast, is the concerto for bassoon, a dandy, colorful composition requiring virtuosity. .. The four movements of the Fantasia brings together some extraordinary musical explorations... The first two tracks of the album constitutes From The Institutes of Groove, which features the bass trombone of Angel Subero, who has traveled the worlds of classical, Latin, and jazz. The first section, Too Jazz for Rock, is amusing because it is too classical for jazz! It is an exciting, atmospheric, rhythmic romp that blends the three musical styles. Rising on the Wing is a pulsing spiral of keys, ending at the next octave, that puts the slide of the trombone to good use in its glissandi. ...In short, this charming Gandolfi album is groovy, man.

Respighi is best remembered for his scenic views of Rome, namely the wonderfully descriptive triptych Feste romane, Fontane di Roma and Pini di Roma; look beyond these works, however, and youll find a sizeable, rich and varied orchestral output unsurprising for a composer who is today regarded as one of the supreme masters of orchestration.

Both the works on this album came about as a reaction to the horrors of war. Shostakovich visited Dresden in 1960, and much of the city still lay in ruins. His 8th String Quartet dedicated to the victims of fascism, is one of his most powerful and deeply personal works, quoting from earlier compositions, and using the composer’s musical motto D Es C H. The composer wept after the first private performance.
