CD (Item 112716) Blue Note, 2021 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
Fantastic sounds from drummer Johnathan Blake – exactly the kind of record that's a key part of the forward-thinking sound of the Blue Note label in recent years! Blake's a drummer, but that's just part of his talents here – as the songs have a fresh crackle that links together older modes of jazz, particularly the creative spirit of Johnathan's home scene in Philly, with some of the bolder elements that have come into play with some of his up-and-coming contemporaries – featured here in a great quintet that includes Joel Ross on vibes, Immanuel Wilkins on alto, David Virelles on keyboards, and Dezron Douglas on bass. Titles include "On The Break", "Steppin Out", "Rivers & Parks", "Shakin The Biscuits", "Abiyoyo", and "LLL".  © 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.

Blue Note Years
Blue Note/EMI (Italy), Late 2000s. Used 2CD

Blue Note/Jazz Heritage, 1990. Used
A great early moment for pianist Benny Green – just the kind of record that got Green plenty of notice right at the start of the 90s! Benny's working here in a style that's deeply personal – especially so on the album's handful of solo numbers, but still quite strong even on the trio ... CD

Lee Morgan

Candy
Blue Note, 1957. Used
A very different album for Lee Morgan – especially in comparison with his other early sessions! The record is a gentle batch of ballads and standards, played by Morgan with a quartet that includes Sonny Clark on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – all beautifully ... CD
Blue Note, 1971. Used
Brilliant work throughout – the last studio album ever cut by Lee Morgan, and a mindblowing session that always leaves us wondering how massive he would have become if he hadn't been tragically murdered shortly after it was recorded! The album's a huge change from Morgan's already-great work ... CD

Medeski, Martin & Wood

End Of The World Party
Blue Note, 2004. Used
One of the best records we've heard in years from Medeski, Martin, & Wood – a searing batch of grooves that really gets back to the trio's original brilliance, and which features some wonderful production from the Dust Brothers! There's a lean, hard, and funky sound to the set that ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used
Beautiful – simply beautiful – one of the greatest Wayne Shorter albums for Blue Note, and one of our favorite jazz albums ever! The record is a masterpiece of lyrical delight – soul jazz mixed with slight touches of experimentalism – but still warm, swinging, and personal ... CD

Jacky Terrasson on piano, Ugonna Okegwo on bass, and Leon Parker on drums. CD

John Coltrane

Blue Train
Blue Note, 1957. Used
John Coltrane's classic – and only – recording as a leader for Blue Note! The album's no throwaway date, though – as it stands strongly with both Coltrane's other label work of the time, and with the best of the late 50s Blue Note scene – a time when the label was really ... CD
Blue Note, 1990. Used
An early demonstration of Eliane Elias' love of Brazilian music – a wonderful set that's filled with famous tunes penned by Antonio Carlos Jobim – mostly played by Eliane on piano, but also sung in a few spots as well! The group features solid jazz grounding from Eddie Gomez on bass ... CD

Jim Hall with Tom Harrell

These Rooms (with bonus tracks)
Denon (Japan), 1988. Used
Jim Hall's working here beautifully with trumpeter Tom Harrell – a player whose spacious tones are a perfect match for Jim's open, airy phrasing on the guitar – all supported beautifully by rhythms from Steve LaSpina on bass and Joey Baron on drums! Harrell plays mostly flugelhorn on ... CD
