CD


Buddy Montgomery's always one of those players who brings a little something extra to a record – and even on a late 80s set like this, he manages to make the session sound much better than you'd guess from the cover! Buddy plays vibes, piano, and keyboards – and although there's a few electric points that show the date of the recording, they're also very quickly offset with a richness of feeling that balances things out beautifully – so much so that we almost find ourselves liking the more electric moments better for Montgomery's approach. Other players include David Fathead Newman on tenor, Warren Gale on trumpet, Jim Nichols on guitar, and either Ron Carter or Jeff Chambers on bass, and Ralph Penland on drums. Some tracks have Latin percussion – which is an added treat – and titles include "So Why Not", "Waterfall", "Budini", "Out Of This World", "My Sentiments Exactly", and "Summer Nights". CD features the bonus track "My Little Brown Book". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2017, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
