Third Power

$7.99 ...

CD

As with much of the work in his career, Bill Laswell assmebles an all star cast, this one based around the crew he'd pull from as he explored some of the heavier more tripped out directions that seemed to guide his work through the 90s. On the one hand he's tapping into the P-Funk axis with Bootsy, Gary Shider, Mudbone Cooper and Bernie Worrell, while still using some of the world music and reggae musicians he recruited nteh 80s, like Sly & Robbie and Aiyb Deng, plus the JB's horns withMaceo Parker, Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis. Add a touch of avant jazz from Olu Dara and Henry Threadgill, plus a host of vocalists including the Jungle Brothers, Jalaluddin Nuriddin of the Last Poets and Shabba Ranks and you've got a pretty heavy cast of characters. Includes "Reality", "Playin With Fire", "Cosmic Slop", "E-Pluribus-Unum", "Drive-By", "Power OF Soul (Black Chant)", "Mellow Mood" and "Glory".  © 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.

Bugge Wesseltoft (New Conception Of Jazz)

Moving
Jazzland/Universal (UK), 2001. Used
Maybe the best album so far by this groundbreaking Norweigian keyboardist!
