Crescent With Love (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks)

CD (Item 120054) Venus (Japan), 1992 — Condition: Used
Gatefold
$24.99 ...

CD

A wonderfully majestic album by Pharoah Sanders – sort of a follow up to his Welcome To Love album of ballads and standards, but handled with a bit more of the expansive soul of some of his other recordings. Like that previous album, this one has Pharoah playing tenor in a quartet with William Henderson on piano – but the difference here is that Sanders has chosen a deeper, darker set of material – one that includes a few strong Coltrane originals, which are done in freely flowing versions that take along the other tracks with their energy. Titles include "Lonnie's Lament", "Wise One", "Naima", "Crescent", and "After The Rain". This is the single LP version – presented with 2 more bonus tracks than the original album, but less than the later double CD version.  © 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.

Thembi
Impulse, 1971. Used
Classic spiritual soul jazz from Pharoah – recorded with an all star lineup that includes Lonnie Liston Smith, Cecil McBee, Roy Haynes, and Michael White. The album's got a strong influence from the members on the set – particularly Lonnie Liston Smith, who seems to bring in a very ... CD

Pharoah Sanders

Karma
Impulse, 1969. Used
Quite possibly the best-remembered album from Pharoah Sanders' legendary run at Impulse Records – a set that crossed over big, and sold to countless folks who might not have bought a jazz album this hip otherwise! The record was Sanders' first in the wake of Coltrane's passing – and it' ... CD

Archie Shepp

True Ballads
Venus (Japan), 1996. Used
Some folks only know Archie Shepp as a hard-blowing avant player, but we're always more than happy to give him his due as a soulful interpreter of ballads – as you'll hear on a record like this, a real gem from his later years! The tunes are all familiar standards, but done the Shepp way, ... CD

As Long As There's Music
Venus (Japan), 1997. Used
Beautiful sounds from pianist Denny Zeitlin – one of those players who often gets overlooked, but who's made some incredibly expressive music over the years! The album's got a sparkle that really takes us back to Denny's 60s sides for Columbia, but it's also got a slightly more mature ... CD

Venus (Japan), 2005. Used
If that's the dead princess on the cover, we sure hope they put some clothes on her before the funeral! Jokes about the cover aside, though, the album's a sublime outing from pianist Steve Kuhn – a very unusual showcase for his talents, in that it features mostly tunes pulled from classical ... CD
Venus, 1998. Used
Great Shepp with a great group – a quartet that pairs Archie's amazing tenor with the piano of John Hicks! The album's one of the best of Archie Shepp's later ballad albums – and has a really standout feel, thanks to Hicks' warmer tones on the piano alongside Shepp's raspier notes. ... CD
