Special K

CD (Item 613174) Fantasy, 1982 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.90 11

A sweet set of 80s groove material from keyboardist Kevin Toney – recording here away from The Blackbyrds, but still very much in a Fantasy Records mode! The set's kind of a "jazz fusion plus soul" outing – and features players that include Paul Jackson Jr, Bill Summers, Oscar Brashear, and Ray Obiedo – as well as vocalists Aaron Mills and Alton Green. Tracks are more electric than work by The Blackbyrds, but have a jazzy soul approach that's quite similar to work by Roy Ayers or Donald Byrd from the same time period. Titles include "Naima", "A Good Feeling", "Special K", "On Your Feet", "Chasin Rainbows", and "Spread The Word". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2015, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Our favorite-ever album from Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that we'd easily rank as one of our favorite soul records of the 70s! The mix of modes is mindblowing right from the start – as Gil's poetry comes into play with his growing talents as a singer, and his warm sensibility for jazz ... CD

Capitol, 1962. Used
One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album. Most of the numbers are bluesy ones, but as usual, Lou manages to give them his own hip twist ... CD
