Sonny Rollins – Live In London Vol 2

CD (Item 549478) Harkit (UK), 1965 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A second set of tracks from Sonny Rollins' early 1965 stay at the Ronnie Scott Club in London – one that features some wonderfully angular backing from the Stan Tracey Trio! Tracey's got a nicely modern approach to the keys here – one with hints of Monk and Herbie Nichols, and which provides Rollins for an unusual setting for the time – especially considering his other live dates with piano-less groups, or his studio work for RCA during the period. Tracks are long, with a real focus on Sonny's improvisation over the space of the tunes – and titles include "Night & Day", "Flamingo", "Nutty", "A Foggy Day", and "Autumn Nocturne".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Way Out West
Contemporary/OJC, 1957. Used
A classic set that brings the east coast tenor of Sonny Rollins into contact with a west coast rhythm section of Ray Brown and Shelly Manne! Despite Rollins' silly look on the cover, and the album's overall "western" theme, the session's a brilliant one – right up there with Sonny's ... CD

A classic straight session by Joe Henderson – cut during his early years, when he was breaking out of the box with a heck of a lot of fire! Kenny Dorham's subdued lyricism complements Joe's impassioned playing over the angular, yet still-swinging rythm section of Andrew Hill, Eddie Kahn and ... CD

Stan Getz

Focus
Verve, 1961. Used
Oft-overlooked album that's actually one of Getz's most far-reaching of the 60s! Recorded in the year before he got caught up in his bossa pop frenzy, the record shows Getz as a darkly toned modernist, weaving out complex solos over the album's extended suite "Focus", written and ... CD

Lester Bowie cooks it nicely with an organ-based group – and one that features work on the Hammond by Amina Claudine Myers! Despite the hokey cover of the set, there's actually a pretty nice sound to the record – one that extrapolates from an older soul jazz tradition, and gives the ... CD
