Blossom Dearie Sings Comden & Green

CD (Item 483790) Verve, 1959 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

The lovely Blossom Dearie runs through a set of hip tunes written by the team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green – two of the more forward-thinking writers working on Broadway during the 50s. The tracks are handled with intimate small group backing – Kenny Burrell on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums, all next to Blossom's vocals and piano – and the readings of the tunes are much more open-ended than those you might be familiar with, all given the light lively Blossom twist! Titles include "Lucky To Be Me", "Just In Time", "It's Love", "Lonely Town", "Dance Only With Me", "The Party's Over", and "I Like Myself".  © 1996-2019, 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.
