✈

If there's a better compilation of groovy, groovy West German jazz from the early-to-mid 60s than this amazing set from Sonar Kollectiv – we'd be shocked to hear it! Forum West features an amazing selection of some of the best 60s icons of the German and European scenes – including Hans Koller, Wolfgang Dauner, Rolf & Joachim Kuhn, Joe Nay & Fritz Pauer and many more! The modern jazz scene of the time was absolutely ripe with some of the most open and creative grooves jazz had seen at the time, thanks to the floodgates being ripped open by Mingus, Byrd, Cherry and others in the avant garde – and the artists on this set inject that sweetly open and groovy European aesthetic – full of chiming keys and vibes, flute, and other airy elements that make the overall sound so magical! Amazing, amazing stuff – some of the greatest hip European jazz you could ever hope to hear from the era! Tracks include "Intrata" by the Wolfgang Lauth Sextet, "Mingus Privat" by Hans Koller Ensemble, "Freefall" by Wolfgang Dauner Trio, "Last Of The Wine" by Ronnie Ross & His Band, "Red Roof" by Fritz Pauer Trio, "Eternal Oil Lamp" by the Joe Haider Septet, "Arabia Rock" by Rolf & Joachim Kuhn Quartet and much 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.

Warner, 1990. Used
A beautiful later album from Miles Davis – and a tremendous collaboration with composer Michel Legrand, in a set that returns Miles to the French soundtrack tradition he first started back in the late 50s! Some of the tracks here are quite spare – the kind of moody, ethereal solo ... CD
