Revival Of The Fittest

CD (Item 535622) High Note, 2009 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

An excellent modern jazz set from tenor sax titan Eric Alexander – who has truly grown into one of the best players of his generation – and a killer set for the High Note label! There's always these, "whoa," moments on Alexander's records, where he's rolling along with an effective approach that's just enough to pull you in and hold you, and then he just runs off with a dexterous line of notes that knocks it right out of the park. He's backed by the great Harold Mabern on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums, under producer Don Sickler and engineer Rudy Van Gelder. Includes "Revival", "My Grown Up Christmas List", "The Island", "Too Late Fall Back Baby", "Love-Wise", "Blues For Phineas", "You Must Belive In Spring", and the closing original "Yasashiku (Gently)".  © 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.

A bold quintet set from trumpeter Tom Harrell – one that's a bit more back to basics than some of his other recent outings – with an especially strong focus on horn solos spiraling out over the rhythms! Harrell's got a nice bit in his trumpet, and plays some moodier flugelhorn too ... CD
