CD

✈

A wonderful little record that's like few other we can think of – the debut of bassist Esperanza Spaulding, a player who also sings along wordlessly with her strings! The style is quite unique, and completely great – and Esperanza's really opened up a whole new territory here with her compelling approach. The lineup here includes piano and drums next to the bass and vocals – brought together with a warmth that recalls some of the best freedoms of mainstream 70s jazz piano sides, touched with modes from Brazilian jazz – but again, the work is done in a fresh approach here that's uniquely its own! Titles include great versions of Jimmy Rowles "The Peacocks", Egberto Gismonti's "Loro", and Chick Corea's "Humpty Dumpty" – plus the originals "Two Bad", "Perazela", "Mompouana", and "Perazuan".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Victor (Japan), 1999. Used
An incredible new soul album – and one of our favorites of the past few years! Laurnea's one of the best singers we've heard in ages, and she's got a warm sweet wonderful voice that works perfectly with the album's mellow jazzy arrangements. There's lots of cool electric keyboards, a slowly ... CD

Yolanda Johnson

Violet Flower
Meta Music, 2006. Used
A really wonderful set from Yolanda Johnson – the daughter of 70s mellow soul genius Samuel Jonathan Johnson, but a heck of a great artist in her own right! Yolanda's definitely inherited some of her father's talent for a laidback groove – and this album's a masterpiece in understated ... CD

Sweet, deep, and righteous – some wonderful solo work from Rhonda Thomas, the lead singer of Jiva! The album's got a warm-flowing, easy-stepping sort of groove – gentle keyboards on mellow beats, almost in a style that takes us back to classic Minnie Riperton jams of the 70s – ... CD
Capitol, 1956. Used
A great album, and one in which Nat King Cole returns to his roots as a jazz singer! The session differs greatly from Nat's other schmaltzy ones from the time, and it features a very "after midnight" sound – with Nat playing and singing backed only by a small combo that includes ... CD
