Essential Selection

CD (Item 488836) Arision (UK), 2006 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Definitely a well-titled collection – as it brings together a wide range of remixes and singles by Big Bang – all of which are as essential as the full length albums! The Big Bang groove is a wonderful one – steeped in jazz funk and fusion traditions of the 70s, but put together in a leaner, more stripped down mode for the 21st Century – a style that certainly has echoes of BB's London residency, but which comes off with a sound that's warmer and more fluid than most of their contemporaries! There's a strongly jazz-based component to many of these tunes – one that's located mostly in the keyboards, but which is there nonetheless – brimming up from the bottom to fill these tunes with a sense of life and joy that's really amazing. Titles include "Clouds", "To The Full Every Minute", "Yo Yo Jazz (Nicola Conte rework)", "My Favorite Things", "Another Day (Viper squad rmx)", "Lady (4 Hero rework)", "Summer Fields", "Batucada Mondiale", "Smile In Your Eyes", and "Spiral Waltz (Indigo Jam Unit rmx)".  © 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.

A beautiful new chapter in the career of Raphael Sebbag – work that's quite different than the grooves he first did in United Future Organization, and a lot more organic as well! There's a fair bit of Latin style running through the set – but not in a hokey way, and more in a ... CD

A great little record from this hip Italian combo – a group who nicely swing between 60s mod, hardbop, and soul jazz styles! The combo's all acoustic – save for a bit of Hammond in the mix – and the sound here is partly like some of the club jazz grooves coming from the European ... CD
