Dream Of The Camel

CD (Item 106823) Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2001 — Condition: Used
$4.99 ...

CD

We've not heard much from pianist Christoph Stiefel, but this is a set that will definitely have us seeking out more – as Stiefel's got this really mature, fully-formed approach to his music – one that takes the trio setting of the record far past any familiar expectations, thanks to some really well-written originals, and a great sense of balance between the piano, bass, and drums. The other two instruments are handled by Michel Benita and Joel Allouche, respectively – and Stiefel allows them plenty of roles in the overall sound far past traditional timekeeping – which also seems to open up his own sense of timing and expression. Titles include "Dream Of The Camel", "Satori", "Essence", "Song For Monalisa", "Freedom Jazz Dance", "Following", and "Unspoken Words".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

City Beat
Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1988. Used
An under-discovered batch of jazzy soul from Bobbi Humphrey – an artist we love for her 70s work on Blue Note and Epic, still sounding pretty great here in the late 80s! The overall style of the album's a bit different than Bobbi's 70s work – more in a Patrice Rushen blend of 80s ... CD

Dollar Brand

African Space Program
Enja (Germany), 1973. Used
One of the most righteous 70s sessions to come from the hands of Dollar Brand – a New York recording that's filled with work by a host of players from the spiritual jazz underground – all of whom soar strongly on the album's long tracks, and give the set a fire and righteous energy you'r ... CD

Turtles – Live At The Domicile
Enja/Universal (Japan), 1968. Used

African Suite
Enja/Tip Toe, 1997. Used

Jazzpar Prize
Enja (Germany), 1991. Used

Bobby Watson

Advance
Enja, 1984. Used
An unusual early set as a leader from Bobby Watson – recorded during his initial batch of work with Curtis Lundy, but in a much freer style! The session's a live one – and has Bobby as the main soloist in a quartet that includes Jim McNeeley on piano, Todd Coolman on bass, and Adam ... CD
