Afro-Cuban Jazz Moods

CD (Item 488294) Pablo/OJC, 1975 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A great Dizzy Gillespie Latin session recorded during the mid 70s – proof that he could still hold onto the cubop spirit of the old days! The session features a larger group arranged and conducted by Chico O'Farril – who manages to keep a solidly Cuban groove at the base, but really let Dizzy open up with some broader horn flourishes at the top. Given the quality of actual Cuban jazz at the time, this set may well beat most of what was going on in Havana – thanks to solid solos from Dizzy, and backings from a group led by Machito, and featuring players who include Mario Bauza, Jorge Dalto, Manny Duran, Mauricio Smith, and Victor Paz. Side one features the extended "Oro, Incienso y Mirra", and side two is a 3-part suite, "Three Afro-Cuban Jazz Moods".  © 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.

Jack McDuff & Gene Ammons

Brother Jack Meets The Boss
Prestige/OJC, 1962. Used
A classic early set from Jack McDuff – and a record that's very much in his own hands, despite the presence of Gene Ammons as a co-leader! The group's more of a McDuff one than an Ammons ensemble – and features the great Joe Dukes on drums, Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Harold Vick on ... CD

Kenny Dorham

Quiet Kenny
Prestige/OJC, 1959. Used
Kenny may be quiet, but he's never muted – and the record is far from the sleepy session you might guess from the title! The album's a real standout in the Dorham catalog – a set that let's Kenny's trumpet sparkle beautifully in a quartet that includes piano from Tommy Flanagan, bass ... CD

Thelonious Monk & Gerry Mulligan

Mulligan Meets Monk (with bonus tracks)
Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used
An unlikely pair, but a great one here – and the record's one of those few magical moments where bringing together unusual partners actually works! Mulligan's cool hardly seems a match for Monk's angular modernism, but together the players seem to strike a middle ground that resonates with ... CD
OJC/Riverside/Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s. Used
A 6-track sampler with selections from "New Jazz Conceptions", "Everybody Digs Bill Evans", "At The Village Vanguard", and "Waltz For Debby". CD
Prestige/OJC, 1953. Used
Early 50s material recorded by the late Clifford Brown – issued here in a classic "memorial" package slightly after his death in 1956! And while Brown never recorded much for Prestige – and never really as a leader – these sides are still a great example of his ... CD

Giants
Pablo/OJC, 1974. Used
A trio date that features Oscar Peterson on piano and organ. Ttiles include "Jobim", "Riff Blues", "Blues For Dennis", and "Sunny". CD

Richard Groove Holmes

Soul Message
Prestige/OJC, 1965. Used
A key album in the career of Richard Groove Holmes – his first session ever for Prestige Records, and the one that yielded the monster crossover hit version of "Misty"! The sound here is much leaner and cleaner than Groove in his Pacific Jazz years – a tight trio approach ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1978. Used
Mary Lou Williams on piano. CD

Andre Previn & Russ Freeman

Double Play!
Contemporary/OJC, 1957. Used
A goofy title and cover – but a really unique session of two-piano jazz, recorded with Russ Freeman and Andre Previn on the keys, plus only the drums of Shelly Manne to provide additional support! The sound is really great – and Previn's especially wonderful here, really stretching out ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used
The Bill Evans trio with Scott LaFaro on bass and Paul Motian on drums – a near-perfect lineup that forever raise the bar for jazz piano expression! The title here is certainly apt – because even though many of the tunes are shortish, Evans has a sense of exploration in the way he's ... CD

Sonny Fortune

Better Understanding
Blue Note, 1995. Used
A great later album from Sonny Fortune – still as wonderful here as he was in the 70s! Sonny blows alto, soprano, and flute – and the group also features work from Kenny Barron on piano, Jerry Gonzalez on trumpet, Robin Eubanks on trombone, and Billy Hart on drums! Titles include ... CD

Jimmy McGriff

Worm
Solid State/Blue Note, 1968. Used
Heavy funk from Jimmy McGriff – a monster set of grooves that ranks with his best of the late 60s! The tracks are short and sock-hard – Jimmy wailing on Hammond, over rhythms that have plenty of sharp edges, and lots of nice drum work – all recorded in a mode that's a heck of a ... CD
