State Of Art

CD (Item 614843) Concord, 2011 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


5.00 5

An exciting debut from bassist Ben Williams – who we're hoping busts out a really big way! State Of Art was recorded over just a 2 day period – which isn't especially noteworthy given that many of the greatest jazz albums were recorded nice and quick-like – but the sprawling stylistic range here and the large cast of guests make that mightily impressive. A tribute to Lee Morgan features MC John Robinson and trumpet player Christian Scott and a couple tracks feature a 4-part string section – while most tracks feature sax, guitar, keys, drums and percussion. Appreciation of classic 60s jazz as well as later soul jazz and hip hop informs his style, and we're expecting some great things to come from Ben Williams. Includes "Home", "Moontrane", "The Lee Morgan Story" featuring rhymes by John Robinson & Christian Scott, "Dawn Of A New Day", "Little Susie", "November", "Part-Time Lover", "Things Don't Exist", "Mr Dynamite" and "Moonlight In Vermont".

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.

Excellent work from Marcus Miller – the kind of soul-drenched, bass-led set that's made him a favorite for years! There's a tightness here that almost takes us back to the feel of a Stanley Clarke set from the 70s – a right on the money groove you'll hear right from the start – ... CD

Classic 60s soul jazz from Lou Donaldson – and one of the first albums that has him working with Grant Green on guitar and Baby Face Willette on organ! Both players were discovered by Lou and brought to New York for Blue Note – a move that not only helped give the Donaldson sound a ... CD
