Ari Brown Live At The Green Mill

CD (Item 573852) Delmark, 2007 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Some of the best work we've ever heard from saxophonist Ari Brown – really stepping into his own space as a leader here, after countless years working with other players on the Chicago scene! The album's not Ari's first as a leader, but it may well be his strongest – a great live performance that's graced by his own creative, sharp-toned lines on tenor, soprano sax, and flute – and which also features great accompaniment from a quintet that includes his brother Kirk on piano. Kirk's bold, flowing lines bring in a nice sort of McCoy Tyner-esque spirituality to the record – and although the set was recorded recently in Chicago, it's got the musical feel of a indie soul jazz session from the 70s. Other players include Pharez Whitted on trumpet, Yosef Ben Israel on bass, Avreeayl Ra on drums, and Dr Cuz on percussion. Titles include "Richard's Tune", "One For Skip", "Shorter's Vibes", "Two Gun V", "Evod", and "Kylies Lullaby".  © 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.
