The last album in a legendary run of music from keyboardist Doug Carn – his final album for the Black Jazz label, and a set that pushes even farther than his previous efforts! Jean Carn isn't in the group this time around, but the set does feature a totally great twin-vocal approach – with singing by Joyce Green and John Conner, blending their voices together in a style that's right up there with the most righteous 70s jazz experiments by Horace Silver or Billy Gault! This vocal balance really brings a new sort of power to Carn's music – furthering the righteous spirit of earlier years with a hell of a lot of energy – also aided by great instrumental work from Ronnie Laws on tenor and soprano sax, Thurman Green on trombone, Calvin Keys and Nathan Page on guitars, and Big Black on percussion. Titles include the classic "Higher Ground" – plus "Adam's Apple", "Western Sunrise", "Chant", "Sanctuary", "The Messenger", and "Mighty Mighty".  © 1996-2022, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Some of the most hard-edged work cut by Stan Getz in the early years – a great reminder that he could really open up with the best of the bop world – and not just lay back and get mellow with an electric guitar! The setting has Stan working with some key west coast talents – ... CD
Black Jazz, 1974. Used
Brilliant basswork from Henry Franklin – one of the hippest cats handling his instrument on the west coast in the 70s – working here with a wicked ensemble of soulful, righteous players! Franlin's bass sets the tone of the record right from the very first note – but the album's a ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1994. Used
A smoking live set from vibesman Billy Wooten – recorded with a slightly Latin mode, thanks to backing from his hip Music Royale ensemble! Wooten's vibes are as sharp and soulful here as on any of his great 70s recordings – and the added fire of the Latin group really helps Billy find ... CD

Manhattan Jazz Quintet

Sidewinder
King/Paddle Wheel (Japan), 1987. Used
The album's titled after a classic song by trumpeter Lee Morgan – a great choice, given that the trumpet of Lew Soloff is such a strong force in the group – blowing bold, bright, and maybe more full of energy than on another setting we think we've heard him in! And the tenor of George ... CD
Life Force Jazz, Late 70s/1980s/1990s. Used
A treasure trove of obscure soul jazz recordings from the west coast scene – pulled from 25 years' worth of music on the Life Force Jazz label, in a style that gives a splendid representation of the rich talents that are still waiting for a fuller level of exposure in the Bay Area! A few of ... CD
Pacific Jazz (Japan), 1956. Used
Gerry Mulligan brings the piano back in nicely here – but in a way that still hangs onto all the best modern tones of his earlier Pacific Jazz sessions! The date's a live one – done at Storyville in Boston – but the sound is wonderfully intimate, with Gerry on baritone sax and ... CD

Letter To South Africa
Nimbus, Late 80s. Used
Soulful modern work by pianist Curtis Clark – recorded with a great group that includes John Tchicai on tenor and Louis Moholo on drums, with evocative cello work by Ernst Reijseger. The energy here is a lot more subdued than some of Clark's other Dutch recordings – in a good way, and ... CD
