CD (Item 486139) Perfect Toy (Germany), 2003 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock


A brilliant album of cosmic jazz from this up and coming German group! Hipnosis work in a territory that's half 70s fusion, and half underground club jazz – in a style that kind of feels like what would have happened if Herbie Hancock recorded for Compost Records! The group boasts some excellent work on Fender Rhodes and reeds – and most of the rhythms of the set have a loping, romping, modal feel – giving the record that warmth and grooveness of a classic album on MPS – showing that the European scene is still quite alive and well, and that all the years of sampled jazz records have finally lead to a great real jazz outing! File this one next to recent work by Sleepwalker and Koop – and prepare to be quite impressed. Titles include "My Words", "Black Forest Stomp", "Faery Song", "Helio Kop", "Moonflower", and "Half & Half". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Wonderful work from this tasty combo on the Stereo Deluxe label – and a perfect blend of older funk, Brazilian grooves, and all the best elements of modern production. The band's got a very soulful sound – with some great keyboard work, nicely conceived grooves, and a classic sound ... CD

Island (Canada), 1993. Used
An excellent early album by funky guitarist Ronny Jordan! Back when everyone seemed to have lost their groove, Ronny emerged with a strong single-note style that reminded us a heck of a lot of Grant Green or Melvin Sparks. This record features some great backings behind Ronnie's guitar, arranged ... CD

An interesting record for beat scene dilettante and producer extraordinaire Howie B. At one level, this continues in the blunted trip hop tradition of his early releases on the Pussyfoot imprint and remixes for Mo Wax, but on another it is heavily indebted to Eno's 70s LPs. Lots of nice ... CD

The album that was supposed to set the pace for a new generation of beatmakers and foretell the sound of music to come, from the late 90s heyday of drum and bass, when it seemed as if things were really poised to jump off for Roni Size and his Bristol massive. Perhaps the larger musical community ... CD
