CD

(€1.86 || £1.59 || ¥223) (approx.)

Get ready to discover a fantastic new soul music talent! Jill Scott's the best thing we've heard in years – and she's a perfect example of the killer NuSoul trends that have been forged in the past few years by artists like D'Angelo, Mshell N'degocello, or N'Dambe (but Jill doesn't have an apostrophe mark in her name!) The record's a totally seductive blend of warm instrumentation, subdued funky beats, and immensely captivating soul vocals. The whole thing's awash in Fender Rhodes, giving it a spacey soul sound that will make the record a classic for years to come! Titles include "The Way", "Do You Remember", "Long Rain", "Love Rain", "Honey Molasses", "Slowly Surely", "Watching Me", and "He Loves Me" – but it's allllll good!  © 1996-2017, 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. 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.

Warm and jazzy tracks – courtesy of German trumpeter Till Bronner, who plays muted trumpet and flugelhorn with really wonderful tone! Till takes the older sound of players like Art Farmer or Chet Baker, and fuses it with some arrangements that bear traces of more recent smooth jazz work ... CD

Ace/Hepcat, 1996. Used
Blue-eyed soul at its best – served up by James Hunter with a really classic sort of sound! This album came out a decade before Hunter's more famous work, but is a set that we still like a fair bit more – a surprisingly simple, no-nonsense effort that owes a fair bit to the smoother ... CD

A breath of fresh air from Teri Tobin! Teri might be one of the most straight up soulful voices to come out of the Arizona scene in years and years – and she's one of our favorite indie soul singers of the post-millenium teens, period – truthfully sounding better than ever on Truth Is. ... CD
Veteran Of Love
Soul Junction (UK), 2014. Used
A great debut from Anthony Toombs – a Milwaukee soul singer who slaved away as a maintenance engineer during the day, while cutting this totally sweet album at night! The album's got a classic sort of male soul vibe all the way through – not 60s or 70s, but that best warm approach of ... CD
Forever Dreaming

Timeless soul and funk from London-based singer Myles Sanko! Sanko had been a rising talent for a few years, serving as a guest vocalist with funk combo Speedometer and others on the European scene, and he really steps out strongly on his own here. There's a richly melodic vibe that's pretty ... CD

A killer set from this great Japanese soul singer! Monday's reinvented her style here, and she's adding a Latiny vibe to the mix – for a sound that's given her her best record in years! The quality of the tracks is excellent – with tight tight songwriting, stellar jazzy grooves, and ... CD

Vibe Alive
Expansion (UK), 1999. Used
An excellent batch of modern soul tunes – recorded with lots of smooth jazzy touches, not with "vibes", as you might guess by the title, but in the jazz inflected tradition of some of the greats of the late 70s mellow soul generation. Showing his roots clearly, Camelle starts off ... CD
