Jazz Reworks – The New MPS Sessions

CD (Item 481639) MPS (Germany), 1960s/1970s/2004 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



The genius of MPS Records – remixed! During the 60s and 70s, Germany's MPS label was one of the coolest things going in jazz – a groundbreaking outfit that recorded some of the most wonderful music of the time. The label had a keen ear for new sounds – and often recorded in funky modes and cross-cultural styles that were years ahead of their time. In fact, the label's music has really had a huge influence in recent years – inspiring hundreds of global DJs and producers in the creation of their own fresh work, and finding a whole new range of listeners in younger jazz fans inspired by this new generation. As tribute to the rebirth of MPS, the label's put together this wonderful set – one that takes older tunes from the classic years, and features them remixed and remade by a host of current cutting edge talents. Artists involved include King Britt, Two Banks Of Four, Matthew Herbert, Frank Popp, Moonstarr, and Spacek – on new versions of tunes that include "Color" by Erwin Lehn, "Terra Samba" by Fritz Pauer, "Feel" by George Duke, "Speech Craft" by Horst Jankowski, "Morning Sun" by Don Menza, "Um Grao De Areia" by Clarke Boland Big Band, "Anima Christi" by Mary Lou Williams, "Music For Pablo" by Hans Koller, and "Zoom" by Volker Kriegel. Think of this as MPS' version of the Verve Remixed project – with the infinitely hipper sound you'd expect!  © 1996-2021, 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.
