CD

✈

2 killers from Eddie Harris' years at Vee Jay – back to back on one CD! Bossa Nova is a very tight little bossa nova set, with a mixture of soul jazz soloing, and light rhythmic accompaniment directed by Lalo Schifrin. The whole thing has a wonderful vibe – in the pocket one minute, but also very groovily dancing the next – and the record stands as one of the most unique in Eddie's catalog from the time. Titles include the 2 long groovers "Cev Y Mar" and "Mima", plus "Samba Para Dos" and "Whispering Bossa Nova". Breakfast At Tiffany's is Eddie's jazz version of Mancini's famous score, played by his killer Chicago group from the old days. There's a great bunch of tracks here besides the hit "Moon River" – like "Sally's Tomato", "Mr. Yunioshi", "Latin Golightly", and "The Big Heist" – and Eddie and crew do an excellent job with the music, opening it up more than Mancini's recording, but still retaining all of its humor and warmth. Players include Charles Stepney and Willie Pickens!  © 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.

Wow! We can never get enough of Eddie Harris. Despite all of the silly situations he's ended up in over the years, an album like In Sound still stands as a beautiful testament to all of the raw power in Eddie's playing. His tone is perfect, and totally unique – and he plays here with Cedar ... CD

Collectables/Atlantic, 1973. Used
This might well be the best album that Les McCann ever cut during the 70s! It's got some killer electric piano riffs, of the sort that are being sampled heavily today by the kids, and which are getting his music to a whole new generation. The tracks have a tight spacey funk sound, and they don't ... CD

Vee Jay (Spain), 1960/1997. Used
One of Wynton Kelly's greatest albums, and an all-star hardbop session that includes Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones. With Philly Joe on drums, and Morgan and Shorter, the LP almost has the feel of a classic Art Blakey session for Blue Note, but Kelly's piano gives ... CD

2 great albums on 1 CD. A sweet set of ballads from vibist Milt Jackson that we dig as much for the silky smooth orchestrations by Quincy Jones as Milt's agile and crisp approach to the vibes. The strings and horns buoy the group nicely, which also features Connie Kay and under recorded guitarist ... CD

A double CD set that brings together 2 of Herbie's stranger albums. Gagaku & Beyond is a weird bit of crossover work from Herbie – done an "eastern" style, with heavy Japanese influences, and tracks that are long, spare, and spacey, with a very meditative feel. Herbie's Family ... CD
