CD

✈

A great little set from Studio Apartment – a group who work in the same jazz, soul, and Brazilian-influenced territory as some of our favorite recent artists from Japan! There's a definite Jazztronik sensibility percolating in the mix here – alongside Sleepwalker and Izanami sensibilities – as real jazz instrumentation comes into play with electric keys, cosmic beats, and some occasional vocals that really give the best tunes a solidly soulful finish! About half the set's instrumental, but there's a depth here that holds the whole thing together with a really unified vision – changing colors and tones from track to track, but keeping an ear out for tunes that have a sense of joy and life throughout! Guests include Chieko Kinbara, Monique Binham, and Shihoko Hirata – and titles include "Flight", "Brave Mind", "Iceman", "Straighaway", "Life From The Sun", "Ryu", "Nature Spirit", and "Dive Into The Night".  © 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.
