Counterpoints

CD (Item 496835) Milestone, 1978 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
A bold trio set from McCoy Tyner – almost bolder than some of his larger group records of the 70s – a live performance done in Tokyo, with superb accompaniment from Ron Carter on bass and Tony Williams on drums! The trio's got a force that grabs us right from the get-go – that cosmic flow that Tyner virtually invented on the piano, working with Coltrane in the 60s – carved out here in freer territory that reminds us a bit of Stanley Cowell on Strata East! Tracks are all nice and long – and titles include "The Greeting", "Sama Layuca", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "Iki Masho".  © 1996-2024, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
