Cassandra Wilson Sings Standards

CD (Item 594792) Verve, 1980s/2002 — Condition: Used
$4.99 ...

CD

A selection of early work by Cassandra Wilson – pulled from four different albums on the JMT label, sides that she recorded back in the 80s, in the early days of her career. Even at this point, though, Cassandra's still got an amazing ability to transform a song – taking standards like "I Wished On The Moon","Round Midnight", "Blue In Green", "Chelsea Bridge", and "Polka Dots & Moonbeams" – and infusing them with her own soulful style. Players on the set include Mulgrew Miller, Grachan Moncur III, Reggie Washington, and Mark Johnson.  © 1996-2020, 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.

New Moon Daughter
Blue Note, 1995. Used
A pivotal set from Cassanda Wilson – and a record that firmly established her as one of the freshest new singers in jazz at the time! The album's awash in rootsy, dusky tones – and has an earthiness that's clearly inspired by older blues, but expressed by Cassandra in voicings that are ... CD

This Is My Beloved
Verve, 1968. Used
An incredible album from Arthur Prysock – an amazing set of mature love modes, set to beautiful backings by Mort Garson! The album's easily Prysock at the height of his 60s sophistication – a complete reworking of the This Is My Beloved modes away from more mainstream readings, in ways ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used
Two of the biggest singers who ever worked for Verve Records – captured perfectly at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1957! Ella Fitzgerald steps out with a strong, lively groove on the first half of the set – swinging things with a looser, more upbeat quality than on some of her mellower ... CD

Sammy Davis Jr & Count Basie

Our Shining Hour
Verve, Mid 60s. Used
A brilliant album that follows on the trend that was begun by Sinatra and Tony Bennett – one that takes strong jazz backings from Count Basie to push a singer past the usual pop format! Sammy didn't always get backing this strong – and the album's got Quincy Jones handling the ... CD
