Mo' Mod Jazz

CD (Item 504703) Kent (UK), Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

We really love all the different volumes in the Mod Jazz series from Kent Records – they've been instrumental to our musical education over the years – so we're always happy to have "Mo", especially with a collection this great! The material comes from a number of different indies from the 60s – and the style here is definitely mod, in that hip mix of R&B, soul, and jazz that was brewing on the London scene back in the day – but which was always best delivered by American artists like this! The music bristles with heavy tenor, Hammond organ, scratchy guitar, and the occasional well-belted vocal – and the whole thing feels like finding a jukebox full of carefully-selected 45s in some lost southside tavern. 22 tracks in all – including "Smokey Joe's La La" by Googie Rene, "Blue Vibes" by Johnny Lytle, "Cholo" by Brown Brothers of Soul, "Soul Jam" by Booker T & The MGs, "Money" by Freddie Roach, "Mission Impossible" by Johnny Gilliam, "Spider Man" by Freddie McCoy, "You Win I Lose" by Little Johnny Taylor, "You Can't Sit Down" by Chris Colombo, "Eyesight To The Blind" by Mose Allison, "My Train" by Merl Saunders, "Brother Ray" by Willis Jackson, and "Right On" by Boogaloo Joe Jones.  © 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.

John Klemmer

Barefoot Ballet
MCA, 1976. Used
A great summation of the sound that John Klemmer created during his early 70s years at Impulse – served up here with a slightly warmer, slightly mellower feel for a great date on ABC! Klemmer's still playing here with a wonderful sense of tone – an approach to reeds that's nicely sharp ... CD
