World Standard 05 – A Tatsuo Sunaga Live Mix

CD (Item 559063) Flower (Japan), 2005 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



The jazziest mix in the World Standard series to date – a set that really shows Sunaga T's growing presence in the club jazz world, but still done with plenty of the clubby touches of previous volumes too! The general vibe here mixes acoustic jazz with bits of house at the bottom – pumping up some straighter jazz tracks in special mixes, and pulling out warmer elements from tracks that were initially designed mostly for the dancefloor – all in the sensitive array of colors and tones that make Sunaga's work so great. There's plenty of recent favorites in the 16 track mix here, but they're often given a fresh twist by Sunaga T – and titles include "Charade" by Sahib Shihab, "Poseidon" by Dalindeo, "Jet Set" by Tatsuo Sunaga, "Oriental Smile" by Paolo Fedreghini & Marco Bianchi, "Life Is A Tree (Truby Trio treatment)" by Siciana Soul, "Livin High" by Jazztronik, "KGO" by Little Big Bee, "Ur" by Alison Crockett, "O Mar E O Amor" by Leny Andrade, "Roughneck" by Eddie Roberts, "Senor Blues" by Povo, and "Nomad (Maurice Fulton rmx)" by Micatone.  © 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.
