Paint It Black – From Jazz To Soul 'N' Funk To Blacksploitation

CD (Item 517778) Brown Sugar (Germany), 1970s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Hip soul, funk, and more – a killer collection that's filled with underground classics from the 70s – including a number of key tracks that have lived on strongly as hip hop samples! The package features some nicely heady grooves – and includes a number of tracks with a pronounced fusion influence, but one that's never too jamming or over the top – just right in the pocket, with the same soulful sensibilities as the other tunes on the set! Titles include "Fantasy" by Johnny Hammond, "Jug Eyes" by Gene Ammons, "Wildfire" by Rusty Bryant, "Sport" by Lightning Rod, "Chicken Lickin" by Funk Inc, "Chase" by Willie Hutch, "Turn Off The Lights" by Larry Young, "If You've Got It You'll Get It" by The Headhunters, "The One Eye Two Step" by Donald Byrd & The Blackbyrds, "People Moving" by Azar Lawrence, and "Ghetto Misfortune's Wealth" by 24 Carat Black.  © 1996-2024, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Verve, 1960s/2002. Used
A very groovy idea! This sparkling set takes older vocal jazz tunes from the Verve catalog, and uses the songs as the basis for new tracks by some of the better producers in the global groove underground. The mix of styles and eras is quite compelling – as torchy vocals drift over the top ... CD

Ray Brown Trio With Ralph Moore

Moore Makes 4
Concord, 1990. Used
We're not normally great fans of the Ray Brown Trio, but this album's a corker – thanks to some great tenor work by Ralph Moore! Moore's a the height of his powers here – blowing with an easy soulfulness that recalls the classic late 50s work of Hank Mobley. His presence on the set ... CD

Long live tracks from Stan Getz – captured at one of his strongest points in the 70s, and working with a quartet that includes Richie Beirach on piano, Dave Holland on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drum s! The feel here is a great extrapolation of the sound of Getz's seminal Sweet Rain ... CD
