Sonic Trance

CD (Item 515846) Warner, 2003 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


A surprisingly wonderful departure for trumpeter Nicholas Payton – a mad set of space jazz, with roots that stretch back to electric Miles and Herbie of the 70s – but an overall sound that's 21st Century Soul all the way! Some of the tunes get quite abstract – with Payton blowing a bit "out" over compressed rhythms and jagged-edged grooves – while others are more laidback, soulful, and mellow – making for a well-rounded album that goes way beyond the simple cliches you might fear from such a set! Titles include "Toys In Babeland", "Two Mexicans On The Wall", "Peeping Tim", "Blu Hays", "Fela 1", "Velvet Handcuffs", "Tantric", and "Seance".  © 1996-2017, 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.
