A really sweet set of jazzy vocals from Carmen Lundy – one of our favorite singers of recent years! This set finds Carmen stepping back a bit to her roots as a soulful interpreter of standards on a number of tunes, all of which blend with Carmen's traditionally-minded originals quite effortlessly! As always, there's a wonderfully soulful feel throughout – warmly flowing jazz, with a sensibility that stretches back to some of our favorite independent work of the 70s, and which clearly puts Carme in a league with Dee Dee Bridgewater as one of the hippest jazz vocalists ever! Carmen's originals include "In Love Again", "Something To Believe In", "A Gift Of Love", "Wild Child" and more. She also takes a handle on Gershwin's "I Love You Porgy", Michel Legrand's "Windmills Of Your Mind", Rodgers & Hammerstein's "It Might As Well Be Spring", James Moody's "Moody's Mood For Love" and more. Carmen's unfussy arrangements, and breezy delivery is solidly accompanied by Curtis Lundy's bass, Victor Lewis's drums, but some loose accompaniment on violin, Fender Rhodes, sax, piano and percussion.

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.
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.
