RECOMMENDED DISCS OF FEBRUARY, 1997


 

RICHARD MARX / FLESH & BONE
 
Now at last Richard Marx's 5 th album "Flesh & Bone" has been released here in Japan on February 26. This album will be also released soon all over the world. However, each version contains different bonus tracks as follows:

Richard Marx / Flesh & Bone

 


 

SEMBELLO / BACKWARDS IN TIME

 

This is the 4th solo album of Michael Sembello . This album has both ethnic taste and black contemporary taste. Stevie Wonder's influence are existing clearly on some tracks. At the same time, you can feel a original taste of Michael Sembello which appeared on his former solo works. Good album. You must take care that this album is released under the name of "Sembello", not "Michael Sembello" !

MARK PORTMANN / NO TRUER WORDS

 

Mark Portmann is known as ex Rippingoton's Keyboard player. He has just released his solo album with some excellent vocal tracks performed by Warren Wiebe and Bill Champlin this time. All instrumental tracks are also very good. This must be one of contemporary Jazz / Fusion masterpiece album in late 90's.

DAVID DIGGS / EYE OF THE STORM
David Diggs, One of talented keyboard/guitar player is well known not only for his own solo works such as "Streetshadows" (1985), which was a top 10 entry on Billboard's Jazz Album Chart for 26 weeks, but also for his producing works with Quincy Jones, Irene Cara, Brothers Johnson and/or Richie Furay.
This is his latest release which was completed at the end of 95, sent to radio in the middle of 96 and just recently begun marketing due to contractual issues

Eye OF The Storm

 


 

BRYAN DUNCAN / BLUE SKIES
Bryan Duncan (ex Sweet Comfort Band), the superstar of Contemporary Christian Music is one of the best blue-eyed soul singers. I have to review his latest album "BLUE SKIES" released in the very end of December 1996 as missing piece to be reviewed here.
