Crazy Rhythms

CD (Item 617053) Savoy, 1945 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Tremendous tenor work from the mid 40s – a side each of Savoy singles done by Charlie Ventura and Charlie Kennedy, packaged here in a mid 50s album! Kennedy's featured on side one – playing with a small combo that includes Johnny Guarnieri on piano, and B DeArango on guitar – in a relaxed, open mode that's certainly swing-based, but shows some modern jazz inflections on the solos. Side two is even tighter – with Ventura hitting on all burners in a quartet with Arnold Ross on piano and Specs Powell on drums – playing with the fire that made him a strong link between many sides of the jazz spectrum at the time! Kennedy titles include "I'll See You In My Dreams", "Whispering", "I Can't Give You Anything But Love", and "I Can't Get Started" – and Ventura numbers include "Jackpot", "Big Deal", "Dark Eyes", and "Charlie Comes On".  © 1996-2021, 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.
