If you want something more advanced and fundamental, I'd recommend classic Database System Implementation[0] by Hector Garcia-Molina; Jennifer D. Widom; Jeffrey D. Ullman. It's still relevant. Technologies change, but fundamental principles and algorithms... change order of magnitude slower.

And yes, it's that Ullman.

I have a copy of https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0130402648 and while I don't think it'll win any "best textbook ever" awards it presents all the basic concepts in a straightforward if somewhat simple way.
