Wallace Roney — Standard Bearer ... LP 11.99

The title's no lie, as Wallace Roney serves up a set of jazz standards – yet in keeping with his other great work on Muse Records, the album's also got a heck of a lot going on as well! The album's hardly the kind of "trumpeter hits the classics" album you might expect – as throughout the session, things open up nicely – starting with sparkling notes on trumpet, but pushing into some of the bolder territory Roney was known for at the time, eventually ending on a number composed by the group. Players include Gary Thomas on tenor, Mulgrew Miller on piano, Charnett Moffett on bass, and Cindy Blackman on drums – and titles include "Loose", "When Your Lover Has Gone", "Con Alma", "Giant Steps", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "Don't Blame Me".

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.

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
Verses
Muse, 1987. Used
A really soaring set from trumpeter Wallace Roney – as tight an album as he ever cut in his early days, working here with a group that includes Mulgrew Miller, Tony Williams, Gary Thomas, and Charnett Moffett. The tracks are mostly longish – with Roney blowing in that proud, full mode ... CD

Love & Understanding
Muse/Xanadu, 1973. Used
An overlooked session from Jimmy Heath – and a perfect illustration of his mighty powers in the 70s! At some level, the record's an extension of the hip soul jazz Jimmy was cutting back in the 60s – particularly on his later work as a sideman for bigger players – but at another ... CD

Jump
Muse, 1989. Used
Surprisingly sweet grooves from guitarist Jimmy Ponder – one of the few from the jazz funk generation who kept on going strong into the 80s! Jimmy's sound here is nicely laidback – a nice change from his smoother albums of a few years before, and set up in an almost-classic sort of ... CD
Riverside, 1961. Used 3CD
Magical trio recordings from the classic trio that featured Bill Evans on piano, Scott LaFaro on bass, and Paul Motian on drums – a massive 3CD set of music, and one that brings together the complete June 1961 Village Vanguard recordings! The revolutionary bass work of LaFaro, and free-thinki ... CD
Kirk's Work (aka Funk Underneath)
Prestige, 1961. Used
A strange and tasty little album that Roland Kirk made with organist Jack McDuff in the early 60s – one of his few outings in such a format, and a smoking little session that almost makes us wish he'd cut more of them! The format is relatively simple – with lots of interplay between ... CD
