J Rawls Presents – The Liquid Crystal Project 2

CD (Item 529326) HBD, 2008 — Condition: Used
$8.99 ...

CD

A groovy set of spacey hip hop and jazzy instrumentals from J Rawls & Co – a very much welcome sequel to the Liquid Crystal Project! This time out the sound even more focused on the live band elements that fleshed out the first album, with ever soaring keys and sax in the mix – and J Rawls' beatcraft at its brightest, tightest, and most cosmic! Rawls has been of the most creative and most slept on beatmakers for years – at his best he's matched Dilla in the soul jazz keys & funky beats department – and Liquid Crystal brings even more fusion funk jazz elements into his sound. All instrumentals, with tribute tracks to classic hip hop crews, and groovy, spacey soul jazz sounds all the way. The band includes piano & keys by B Jazz, sax by Charles Cooper, drums by Rob Riley,and some additional congas by Ayinde West. Titles include "The Lead", "Tribute To The Beatnuts", "Digital Funk", "Rob's Gem", "Loran's Dance Redux", "Tribute To The Beatminerz, Capricorn's Reprise", "Charlie Chop's Gem", "B's Gem", "We Fall Down", "The 6th Minute" and more.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print, booklet has some clear tape over a 1" tear at the fold.)

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.
