Jazz In The Present Tense

CD (Item 503184) Chrysalis, 1994 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Part of a generation of US Acid Jazzers we could never really get behind at the time, this set fares a little better in retrospect. The playing has a crispness about it that we felt lacked edge back then, but betrays a debt to some of our favorite 70s jazz funk on second listen. Includes "Jazz In The Present Tense", "Keep The Rhythm Strong", "Montuno Funk", "Blood Brother", "Daddy Love", "Now This Is How We Do It", "Inside Is A Stride", "Morning After Paradise" and more.  © 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.

Hot Sauce
Chilli Funk (UK), 1998. Used
A stunning collection of deep house tracks – with a classic sound all around, and a very soulful groove that never lets up! Dr Bob Jones and Lofty put this one together, and the set features tracks from their own work with East West Connection, plus some of the best modern house groups in ... CD
East West (Japan), 2002. Used 2 CDs
Mad new work from Towa Tei – a stuttering blend of electro, two-step, and the kind of mixmaster production we've come to love from him! The beats are quite quirky – electronic and quickly stepping – and the range of influences at work get jumbled up even more than on some of his ... CD

Mr Scruff

Trouser Jazz
Ninja Tune (UK), 2002. Used
Another whimsical jazzy beat party from Mr Scruff. Like earlier efforts, this one's filled with off-kilter and playful (but still groovy) samples and synth parts over nice breaks and funky drum patterns, with vocals on a handful of the cuts. Definitely from the leftfield of the spectrum, but with ... CD

Everyday Life
East West (UK), 2004. Used
A really beautiful little record with its roots in Brazil, but a sound that's also got plenty of cosmic London sensibilities! The groove here is wonderful – a blend of more traditional Brazilian jazz and rhythms with some slight modern dancefloor touches – all filtered together with a ... CD
Instinct, 1993. Used
A really groundbreaking little set – the revival of bossa influence on the Japanese scene, presented here by a host of hip talents from the earliest years of the club jazz scene! The album's got a wonderful vibe through and through – a sound that was later taken up by bigger names from ... CD

Red Hot & Rio
Verve/Red Hot, 1996. Used
An early volume in the Red Hot series of benefit compilations, with a Brazilian theme, and as with others in the series, a broad range of artists, often pairing new with old. 21 tracks in all, some with only the most tenuous connection to Brazilian music, but others a brilliant fusion of new ...

Greyboy Allstars

Greyboy Allstars Live
Relaxed Records, 1999. Used
Hot new live set by the ever-popular Greyboy All Stars. The set's a nice batch of straight ahead jazz funk grooves, with some covers – like Lou Donaldson's "Hot Dog", Curtis Mayfield's "Check Out Your Mind", and David Newman's "Duffin' Round" – plus nice ... CD
Blue Note, 1960. Used
A partner album of sorts to Jimmy Smith's classic Midnight Special album – recorded during the same sessions as that one, and also featuring Stanley Turrentine on tenor and Kenny Burrell on guitar! The sound here is almost even more open and stretched out – with only 4 long tracks on ... CD

Verve, 1950s. Used 2 CDs
Wonderful stuff! Ben Webster blows soulful late night ballads over strings – a perfect combination, and a wonderful idea that was first executed on two LPs in the 50s: Music For Loving and Music With Feeling, both of which are reissued here with some extra unreleased material! Backings are ... CD
