CD (Item 520850) Compost (Germany), 2004 — Condition: Used
$2.99 ...


Sublime future jazz from Alex Attias – one of the key forces in the cosmic London scene of the 21st Century, stepping out here in a long-awaited full-length set that served up the full complement of his talents! As you'd expect from Alex, there's plenty of snapping beats and spacey keys on the set – an extrapolation of 70s funky jazz, into the spacier and headier realm that's been explored by Attias and the best of his contemporaries on recent singles. But over and above the high quality usual, there's also a farther-reaching set of rhythms and modes of expression going on here – as Alex uses the freedom of the full-length to work in modes that are sometimes subtler, sometimes more experimental – occasionally just grooving instrumentally, but also getting plenty of help from guest stars that include Vanessa Freeman, Jessica Lauren, Bembe Segue, Colonel Red, and Mark De Clive-Lowe. Tracks include "Help Me", "Closer To Me", "Future Jazz", "In The Jungle", "Back Home", "Everchanging Times", "Darker Side Of Light", "Angels", "Confusion", and "Transformation".  © 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.

Ben Mono

Compost (Germany), 2003. Used
A startling debut from Ben Mono – an up-and-comer from Compost Records who will bear watching in years to come! The album's kind of a mix of broken beats and flanged out soul – almost a trip to London, then Norway, and back to Germany – with everything getting jostled up nicely ... CD

Hymne Au Solieu
B-Flat (France), 2003. Used
A beautiful album of laidback jazz tracks – dedicated to the memory of French pianist Michel Graillier, and recorded very much in the spirit of his work! The group is led by Lionel Belmondo on saxes and Stephane Belmondo on trumpet – and the work has the feel of a contemplative jazz ... CD

Brownswood/Mercury, 1996. Used

Nino Moschella

Ubiquity, 2006. Used
A trippy, gritty, and sparely funky set of tunes from the Bay Area's Nino Moschella – a record akin to the spaced out, idiosyncratic 70s work of Stevie Wonder and bits of Sly Stone and Curtis Mayfield – done with a totally DIY approach that sounds great! Nino handles the singing and ... CD

Quartertones (Canada), 2004. Used
Laidback beats, funky jazz, and a bit of hip hop – all done surprisingly wonderfully by Toronto's Quartertones! The group have a genre-blending quality that we really love – one that's not content to just stick in a hip hop mode, and which steps out into an array of soulful flavors ... CD
