Winter In Lisbon

CD (Item 595414) Milan, 1990 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
A late performance from Dizzy Gillespie, but a great one too – and just the kind of record that shows he was always a constantly creative player! At a point when many others would have been content to just lay back and rehash the same old lines, Dizzy clocked out a masterpiece like this – music originally recorded (but not used) for a film, put together in a wonderfully sophisticated jazz soundtrack mode! There's an evocative quality to the record that takes us back to older European jazz film scores of the 50s and 60s – and the instrumentation mixes small group performances with some augmented string passages too. Other players include Danilo Perez on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Grady Tate on drums – and titles include "San Sebastian", "Magic Summer", "Isthmus", "Lisbon", "Burma", and "Bill's Song".  © 1996-2023, 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.

Verve, 1963/1964. Used
Nice one! Dizzy did the soundtrack for the lost Shirley Clarke verite drama The Cool World – a beautiful black and white film shot mostly on location in the Harlem of the early 60s. Mal Wladron wrote the material for the score, and Diz plays the music with a moody emotionality that you don't ... CD

Dizzy Gillespie

Have Trumpet Will Excite
Verve, 1959. Used
Diz breaks past his bop playing, takes a bit of a turn towards swing-based material, and also hits this nice rolling groove that gives a bit of a peek at the way he'd sound in the 60's, when he had Lalo Schifrin on piano, and more of a Latin sound. He's backed here by Junior Mance on piano, Les ... CD
Verve, 1961. Used Gatefold
While actually not as electrifying as some of Dizzy's other albums from the time, this one's still pretty darn great, and features his great group with Leo Wright on alto and Lalo Schfrin on piano. The band grooves with a subtly Latinish vibe, and the tracks are nice and long long long. Titles ... CD
Capitol/GNP, 1958. Used
Sunny and swinging – an overlooked Capitol Records treasure from George Shearing – and one with a group that really helped set the sound of groovy jazz in the 60s! The players here are all wonderful – Emil Richards on vibes, Toots Thielemans on guitar, and Al McKibbon on bass ... CD
Ronnie Scotts (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. Used
A dozen performances from Arturo Sandoval, Ronnie Scott's Quintet, Marian Montgomery, Tim Whitehead, Irakere, Chico Freeman, Arthur Blythe, Sarah Vaughan, John Taylor, Tam White, George Coleman, Roy Ayers, and Jack Sharpe Big Band. CD

Calvin Keys

Proceed With Caution
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1974. Used
No need to be cautious here – as the album's the sort you can jump into right away – thanks to some wicked grooves from legendary guitarist Calvin Keys! Calvin's had a great revival in recent years, but this album's the stuff that first put him on the map – a brilliant early date ... CD

George Shearing

As Requested
Sheba/Koch, 1972. Used
Really nice work from Shearing – one of a few obscure albums he cut for the tiny Sheba label in LA, and a record that's handled with the same gentle groove of his best 70s work on MPS! Shearing's trio is augmented by guitar and vibes – making for a sound that's kind of an update of the ... CD

Billy Cobham

Spectrum
Atlantic/Rhino, 1973. Used
A monstrous bit of jazzy fusion from the 70s – and the record that really put drummer Billy Cobham on the map – virtually creating his own sort of space between jazz, funk, and prog – thanks to the help of an all star lineup too! Cobham is tremendous on drums – and is ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used
One of Art Blakey's first true moments of genius! This transitional version of the Jazz Messengers included two parts – Lee Morgan and Bobby Timmons – of the holy Morgan/Shorter/Timmons trilogy, and it's also got the added bonus of Benny Golson on tenor, who was at the height of his ... CD
