CD (Item 529467) Pablo, Mid 50s — Condition: Used
6CD + Book
$69.99 ...


Fantastic material from pianist Art Tatum – a musician who's usually captured solo or in trio modes, but who's working here on some fantastic 50s sessions produced by Norman Granz – very much in a Verve style, with all-star players on board throughout – artists who include Benny Carter, Lionel Hampton, Buddy Rich, Barney Kessel, Ben Webster, Buddy DeFranco, Louis Bellson, and Roy Eldridge!  © 1996-2021, 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.

"Genius" is right – because Art Tatum's touch on the keys of the piano here is completely sublime – a style unto itself, with almost a near equal balance between melody and rhythm – and a speed that's almost pyrotechnic, but never too over the top! A fantastic early ... CD

Sonny Criss

Intermission Riff
Pablo/OJC, Early 50s. Used
5 hard to get numbers by alto genius Criss from an obscure 1951 date at the Shrine Auditorium – with a slightly largeish group that includes Bennie Green, Joe Newman, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, and Kenny Clarke. Nice lengthy takes in this lost set of include "Intermission Riff", "How ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1977. Used
A sweet Tommy Flanagan trio date – recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1977, but with a warmth and intimacy that's like catchy Tommy at a small club date! Trio members include Keter Betts on bass and Bobby Durham on drums – but the focus is very strongly on Flanagan's piano ... CD

Pablo/Concord, 1973. Used
Solo guitar by Joe Pass – a beautiful little album that's a perfect showcase for the new sensitivity in his music during his years at Pablo records! The Joe Pass heard here is light years away from the guitar player who made a few gimmicky records a decade before – and this album has ... CD
