State Of Art

CD (Item 614843) Concord, 2011 — Condition: Used
$2.99 ...

CD

Originally: 4.99
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".  © 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.
