Blue 'N Groovy Vol 2 – Mostly Modal

CD (Item 481698) Blue Note, 1960s/1997 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Another one of those great Blue Note comps put together by UK djs, and a lot more sophisticated (and just plain better!) than any of the comps they put out in the U.S. The focus here is on great modal jazzy groovers, and not organ or guitar breakbeat cuts. The tracks are long, with great solos, and include such stellar moments from the catalog as "The Flip" by Hank Mobley, "Congalere" by Horace Parlan, "Una Muy Bonita" by Bobby Hutcherson, and loads more great tracks that are not only great hard jazz tracks by some of the best players on the label, but also which are not in print in any other way at the moment.  © 1996-2020, 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.

Now out of print, and a heck of a great little set of rare and unissued tracks from the glory days of the Blue Note funk scene! For most of the 80s and early 90s, Blue Note US used to bad mouth the stuff from this period – but by the mid 90s, demand for the funky stuff from collectors and ... CD

Blue Note, 1991. Used
Despite the "from the tropics" claim in the title, this comp, unlike the Blue Brazil volumes, features mostly stuff from the catalog of Blue Note US, and it's mostly Brazilian or bossa tracks played by some of the label's greatest artists – a mixture of hard bop and soul jazz tunes, ... CD
Ultimate Dilemma, 1970s/1980s/2003. Used
We can't think of a better title for this excellent compilation from Peanut Butter Wolf.

Killer cuts from the crates – all collected together by DJ Spinna, with a special focus on the sorts of gems that were bubbling under in the early 80s underground! There's definitely a lot of the boogie promised in the title, but there's also some old school hip hop and straighter soul too ... CD

Soul Patrol (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
Funky sounds from the Soul Patrol label – Funky Sex Machines from the 60s & 70s – gritty rhythms, bursts of brass, heavy organs and and feverish vocals! Soul Patrol puts together funky numbers culled from hard-to-find 45s, with numbers by Detroit Sex Machines, James Polk & The ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Mid 70s. Used
Heavy funk and soaring soul from the Mainstream Records family of the mid 70s – a rare batch of tracks that were only ever issued as singles by the label, and by the smaller Brown Dog and IX Chains imprints! Most of the cuts here are right from the middle of the 70s – and are a mix of ... CD
Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
