Sweet keyboard grooves from the Xaver Fischer Trio – an outfit that we haven't heard from for a few years, but who still sound totally great! The group's format is spare and simple – and very much dedicated to the spirit of smaller 70s keyboard funk – with stripped-down basslines and drum parts, topped off by warmer waves of sound from leader Xaver Fischer – who seems to be playing Fender Rhodes on most of the set – and who's got a flowing approach to the keys that we totally love! Drums are nice and hard, but more complicated than just a set of jazzy breaks – and the overall feel of the album is lushly gliding and soulful – topped off by vocals on one tune, but carried by the strength of the trio on the rest! And there's no remixes, no extra bits, or programming to mess up the sound – just pure simple jazzy grooves from the trio! Titles include "Tubao", "Rio Negro", "Mombassa Bossa", "Better Times 1925", "Marchenwald", "Bahia", "Better Times", and "Cocktail Boogie". © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
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.
