Long Live The Chief (Japanese pressing)

CD (Item 505861) Denon (Japan), 1986 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

A post-Basie session from the Count Basie Orchestra – recorded after the Count had passed away, and Frank Foster returned from his wayward years to assume leadership of the group! The sound here is very much in the best Basie mode of the late 50s and early 60s – extremely fluid large group arrangements that sparkle with touches from Basie stalwarts Frank Foster, Eric Dixon, and Freddie Green – plus a number of younger players in the group. Dee Carson is sitting in Basie's chair on piano, and Carmen Bradford sings on the track "A Foggy Day". Other titles include "Hey I See You Over There", "You Got It", "April In Paris", "Bus Dust", and "Corner Pocket".  © 1996-2022, 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.

Gomez
Denon (Japan), 1984. Used
One of the few albums we've ever seen as a leader from Eddie Gomez – the bassist whose work with Bill Evans and others was such a huge contribution to jazz in the late 60s and 1970s! Eddie's working here in a trio format that's a fair bit more harder-grooving than his years with Evans – ... CD

Haunting early work from Japanese reed legend Sadao Watanabe – an artist who makes the record way more than just a set of familiar ballads! True, the set's a bit more mellow than some of Watanabe's other work of the time – but his work on alto and flute really have this subtle sort of ... CD

Alone Too Long
Denon (Japan), 1977. Used
Warm and lyrical solo piano work from Tommy Flanagan – a Japanese only session from the mid 70s, and one of the first of a long run of well-produced dates that Flanagan would do for that market!
