Package Of Memories

CD (Item 609209) Funky Juice (Italy), 2008 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



A great little record from this hip Italian combo – a group who nicely swing between 60s mod, hardbop, and soul jazz styles! The combo's all acoustic – save for a bit of Hammond in the mix – and the sound here is partly like some of the club jazz grooves coming from the European scene of late, mixed with some of the retro sounds from groups like Idea 6 or the Schema Sextet! The lineup features great saxes from Carlo Micheli – who plays tenor, alto, baritone, soprano, and flute – plus piano, bass, and drums – all handled with a really warm, round sound. A vocalist dips in on a few numbers – with a sound that's almost like Mario Biondi – but the main focus of the album is instrumental. The record's light years away from some of the more remix/electronic sets on the Funky Juice label – and may well be their strongest release to date. Titles include "Modesty", "Groovin", "No Problema", "Can't You See", "More", "Instant Karma", "Bosh's Blues", "Come Together", "Pierce's Blues", and "Soul Mission".  © 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.
