Donna Lee (limited numbered edition)

CD (Item 618418) America/Verve, 1972 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Quite possibly our favorite of Anthony Braxton's key French recordings – largely because the record captures him at a point when he was easily skirting between freer and more traditional styles! The group on the set is a quartet with Michael Smith on piano, Oliver Jackson on drums, and Peter Warren on bass – players that are well-suited to work with Braxton on the longer, numerically-named originals on the album – but who also sound incredible on the more straight ahead numbers on the set! The record's almost worth it alone for Braxton's sublime reading of "You Go To My Head" – done as a beautiful exercise in tone and balance that never fails to blow us away. Other tracks include a fiery reading of "Donna Lee", plus 2 more of Braxton's academic compositions. (Out of print.)  © 1996-2017, 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.
