The first full length set we've heard from Shannon Harris & his Urbanicity fellow travelers – and it's a great one – blending classic spiritual jazz, Afro roots & Brazilian influences, and spacey soul for a unique, hypnotic groove! Harris blends live instrumentation with cosmic mood and production touches wonderfully – crafted with soulful vocals, bass, guitar and other strings, sax, flute, vibes and a host of earthy percussion touches – with a bit of a smoothed out groove that glides along and pulls you right in! Unpredictable from one cut to the next, except for it all being uniformly excellent! Guests include Brian Wesley Smith, Christopher McBride, Jube, Natalie Oliveri & Chicago Butucada, Alia Ammar, Cinery Achebe, Nosarnus and others. Shannon is the writer, composer, producer, percussionist and the maestro at the center of it a sprawling, yet insistent vibe. Titles include "Atem Ra", "Desperado/El Montuno (The 2nd Rising)", "Viva A Vida Como De Nao Hauvesse Amanha", "Leroy B-Boy", "Kinetic Energy", "Afrika", "Spirits Of The Black Experience", "States Of Receptivity". © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
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.
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.
