Gotstabe A Better Way (with bonus tracks)

CD (Item 560870) Muse, 1988 — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...

CD

A well crafted set of tunes – both modern and soulful, in keeping with the rich talents of James Spaulding! The album sports a stupid title, but it's actually a thoughtful batch of tracks dedicated to African American achievement and expression – featuring Spaulding on alto sax and flute, in a group with Monte Croft on vibes, Mulgrew Miller on piano, Ray Mantilla on percussion, and Ron Carter on bass. Tracks are longish, and in a number of soulful modes – and titles include "Remember There's Hope", "Blue Hue", "Bold Steps", and "In Flight Out". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "I Have You" and "Barbados".  © 1996-2022, 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 kinky cover, but a great little record – as the Hammond giant is joined by Johnny Coles on flugelhorn, Houston Person on tenor, and Jeffrey Newell on alto and soprano! CD

Wallace Roney

Munchin'
Muse, 1993. Used
Underground grooving from trumpeter Wallace Roney – one of the excellent albums he recorded for the Muse label in the 90s – a wonderfully well-rounded set that's a tremendous tribute to his tone! The group here is every bit as great as Wallace's work in the frontline – Ravi ... CD

Larry Coryell

Comin Home
Muse, 1984. Used
The title's an apt one, as the set's a great batch of back-to-basics work from Larry Coryell – a player who first started out bold and strong in the 60s, and never really had a time to lay back in a more relaxed set like this! There's still a spacious approach that really marks the Coryell ... CD

Woody Shaw

Solid
Muse, 1986. Used
One of Woody's last albums – a back to basics set, recorded with a group that include Kenny Garret on alto sax, Kenny Barron on piano, and guest guitar work on one track by Peter Leitch. The approach is straight modal hardbop – in the spirit of Woody's first recordings for Muse – ... CD
32 Jazz/Muse, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used

Donald Brown

Cause & Effect
Muse, 1991. Used
A really wonderful little album from pianist Donald Brown – deeply soulful, and in ways that go beyond just his work on piano! There's some great higher-concept ideas going on here – bits of culture and philosophy folded into the music, courtesy of recitations by Marlon Saunders on a ... CD

Wallace Roney

Intuition
Muse, 1988. Used
A great late 80s session by trumpeter Wallace Roney – bold, and strongly-blown – proof that he was clearly one of the most striking young trumpet talents of his generation! The album is nicely open-ended, and freely crafted with a strong group that includes Kenny Garrett on alto, Gary ... CD

Wallace Roney

Seth Air
Muse, 1991. Used
One of Wallace Roney's best sessions from the time – an album with a great sense of balance and fullness, and a tremendous tribute to Roney's strength as a leader on Muse Records! The album features equally great contributions from Antoine Roney on tenor – a player who balances out ... CD

Wallace Roney

Crunchin'
Muse, 1993. Used
Very vibrant work from trumpeter Wallace Roney – the sort of record that seems to burst out strongly even on the ballads – which is no surprise, given Wallace's tone at the time! The group here is a strong one for Roney – Antonio Hart on alto, Geri Allen on piano, Ron Carter on ... CD

Jay Hoggard

In The Spirit
Muse, 1992. Used
Lots of nice angles here – a set that starts with a Monkish vibe on the first track, then moves into a range of expressions that really show the full talents of vibist Jay Hoggard! Some tracks are quite spiritual and searching – almost free, but always a bit inside – and even the ... CD
