Lets Dance by David Bowie

Some Bowie fans diss this album because "he was seeking popularity." 

Bowie is a chameleon.  He just played a character this time around that just happened to synch with the 80's, a rarity for him.

Great album in my opinion.

To be fair. Bowie himself referred to Lets Dance as a great Nile Rodgers album but not a David Bowie album.  As a pop album it is quite good but lets face it fans of Bowie's earlier work saw the lack of theme and coherence as a sell out.

Well, I just figured out that Jack White was/is part of a million other groups.  So for the past two hours I've been checking out Two-Star Tabernacle, Goober & The Peas, The Dead Weather, and The Raconteurs (which I've known about and heard on pandora a million times but never knew it was Jack White)

 

Pretty cool stuff:

Two Worlds / Grusin & Ritenour

 

 

 

 

Review by Jonathan Widran  [AllMusic]

Forging a unique creative relationship, Lee Ritenour and Dave Grusin's mutual professional history extends back some two decades.

 Ritenour was a core artist on Grusin's label, GRP, throughout the 1980s and early '90s; in 1986, they first collaborated on the Grammy

Award winning Harlequin, a critically-acclaimed, Brazilian-themed recording. Ritenour also appeared on many of the pianist/composer's

film scores and solo recordings, and the two jammed together on GRP Super Live in 1987. 

Two Worlds, the classical-oriented labor of love that reunites the two legends, is more than simply a beautiful creative departure from the

ir usual jazz-oriented projects. A blend of original compositions and respectful reworkings of timeless classics from BachBartokVillalobos,

Mompov, and Segovia, the collection -- which features stellar guest performances by opera star Renee Fleming, violinist Gil Shaham, and

cellist Julian Lloyd-Webber -- finds Ritenour andGrusin joyously reconnecting with their rich classical roots.

Among the highlights are the lush, highly percussiveVivaldi/Bach piece "Bach Concerto, featuring a twenty-piece string section;

"Bachianas Aria," a piece from Brazilian composer Villalobos, provides a showcase for opera diva Renee Fleming.

As for the original compositions, there's the haunting, melodic "Elegia," which Grusin composed many years ago for his late father,

a violinist, featuring Gil Shaham; "Lagrima (Lee's Prelude)," a graceful Ritenour original led by the classical guitar; "River's Song,"

 Grusin's clever medley adaptation of the folk songs "The Water Is Wide" and "Shenandoah," featuring Fleming on vocals and "Canto,"

an Italian-styled "winter song" which Grusin originally wrote for a Ritenour project in the late '70s.

Timeless yet contemporary, Two Worlds is beautiful reunion of these musical soul mates.
