Soul Unsigned Vol 3

CD (Item 507924) Soul Unsigned (UK), 2009 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


4.50 40

Mindblowing work from the Soul Unsigned series – only three volumes old, but already one of the best sources we know for tapping into the Neo Soul underground! As with the previous two sets, the quality level here is very high – music of the sort that really keeps us digging for hip soul sets from the contemporary scene – not the bigger-name artists that always get foisted to the top of the charts, but the independent ones who are still strongly dedicated to making music that really matters! As the title indicates, the artists here are all unsigned – working without any bigger label contracts – which makes it even more amazing when you hear the set, and realize that they've hit top-shelf sounds while working on their own – a great reminder that, amidst the layers of management and "handling" some singers may get, in the end it's still the artist that really matters. Titles include "Time Of Your Life" by Tyrone, "Freaky" by Excellent Gentlemen, "Next To Me" by Cool Million, "Fire" by Jally, "Amber Lady" by Roman Andren, "Love" by The Constituents, "Get Up" by Unified Tribe, "Music" by J Stever, "You've Changed" by Richard Alexander Davis, "Delightful Jazz" by Daniel Nelson & Mark Drummond, and "Give Love A Chance" by Candycream.  © 1996-2015, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Very cool stuff from this modern German trumpeter! Til's got a style that mixes older influences with modern production – in a manner that reminds us of the work of some of the new French artists on Blue Note, like Eric Truffaz or St Germain. But in Til's case, the influence is also one of ... CD

The second album from hip Japanese soul star Bird! Like her first, this one's a stunning array of jazzy and housey grooves – all produced by Shinichi Osawa of Mondo Grosso, who wrote just about all the music on the album. All the lyrics are in Japanese, but the record's got a strong ... CD

Warm and jazzy tracks – courtesy of German trumpeter Till Bronner, who plays muted trumpet and flugelhorn with really wonderful tone! Till takes the older sound of players like Art Farmer or Chet Baker, and fuses it with some arrangements that bear traces of more recent smooth jazz work ... CD
