Dark Humour

CD (Item 506692) LJC (UK), 2007 — Condition: Used
$2.99 ...

CD

Very hip work from this large London collective – a jazz-based group, but one with an ear for a wide range of grooves! The feel here is somewhere in a space between the earliest experiments of Chris Bowden and more recent records by groups like Heritage Orchestra or the Matthew Herbert Big Band – a mode that's jazz-based at the core, but often turned towards very fresh sounds and complicated patterns – music that's very clearly a new 21st Century legacy of older styles, served up with a very young, fresh feel! Instrumentation is mostly acoustic, but there's some guitar and keyboards in the mix as well – and the overall presentation of the tunes is straight, but filled with surprising colors and tones that really keep things interesting throughout. Some tracks have vocals – from singers who include Kate Brown, Billie Godfrey, or Baby Sol – and these tracks are a bit more soul-based than some of the others. Titles include "Forward Slash", "Shadows Silence & Dreams", "Open Fields Open Minds", "Closer", "Bouncy Bouncy", "SMG", "AJF", and "Eve's Demon".  © 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.
