Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

David Sanborn - A Change of Heart (1987)

This was one of the first CDs I ever bought. Because of that fact, I listened to this one quite a bit. It's typical of Sanborn's output in the '80s, except it relies heavily on synths. Unfortunately, the synth sounds and drum machines have really dated this music. It's more instrumental pop than jazz, but it's what was selling so you can't blame Sanborn for wanting to make a buck. I liked it at the time and I guess that's all that matters. I'm not listening to this disc much these days unless a random song pops up while I'm shuffling through iTunes.

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #74
Peak on Billboard's R&B albums chart: #43

Tracks: I like Chicago Song, High Roller, Tintin, and The Dream. I usually skip Imogene and Breaking Point.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD: Two thoughts come to mind: early mornings in 1988 at the house on Lee St. (below, in 2002) and student teaching in Richardson.

  1. Didn't think I'd ever have something to comment on for a David Sanborn disc but over at DJ Richie P's site today, he's featuring the 12" promo of "Chicago Song" with a remix by Marcus Miller.
