CD

✈
A great document of a great little group – the 1955 quintet of trumpeter Conte Candoli – noteworthy not only for Conte's own trumpet work, but also for the presence of tenorist Bill Holman! The first half of the CD features the album Powerhouse Trumpet – originally cut for Bethlehem Records, and featuring a bit more solo space than Conte got on other sessions – really drawing focus on his tremendous tone, a sound that was tight and confident, yet never too slick or brassy. Holman's horn is always a treat in a record like this – slightly sharp on the edge, with a tone that's surprisingly soulful at times. Other players include Lou Levy on piano, Larry Marable on drums, and Leroy Vinnegar on bass – and titles include "Toots Sweet", "Full Count", "Four", "Groovin Higher", and "Jazz City Blues". The second half of the CD features the album West Coast Wailers – cut less than a month after the first one, and with the same group – all in a sound that really preserves the same sort of energy! As before, Candoli and Holman provide some wonderful moments – and Levy's piano seems to get even more place in the arrangements than before. Titles include "Lover Man", "Pete's Alibi", "Cheremoya", "Jordu", "Marcia Lee", and "Flamingo".  © 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.

Way more pop than jazz from Deodato – a record that has the keyboardist working with a trio of younger vocalists who alternate lyrics on each track in the set! The approach here takes off from Deodato's strong soul production and arranging work of earlier years, but has a bit more of a ... CD

Motor City Scene
Bethlehem, 1960. Used

Black Monk (Austria), 1978. Used
Tremendous work by a jazz group we've not seen on any other records – working here in a set of live improvisations recorded in Austria in 1978! The sound is loose, but never entirely free jazz – as there's a good sense of rhythm to the group, hanging sometimes together in less-tradition ... CD
