Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Wow! What a great surprise! This album was way better than we expected it would be when we ordered it, even though it's on a label that we know and like. It's a great groovy mix of funky loungy grooves (which sounds a bit like Pizzicatto 5 in parts), mixed with a great tenor player who has a good deep sound, and some excellent Italian production all the way through. There's a superb sense of humor that characterizes the playing, and which gives the whole disc a nice fresh feel that makes it stand apart from a lot of the other modern jazzy stuff that's out today. Lots of groovy tracks, including a cool vibesy update of "Bolero".  © 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.

Deep Inside
Irma (Italy), 1996. Used
Soul singer Michael Allen is backed up by a smooth Italian group in this nice modern soul session from a few years ago. The tracks are nice and mellow, and Gazzara's on electric keyboards and gives the LP a nice jazzy feel. Nearly all the cuts are originals by Allen, and the set includes "Bre ... CD

Ohm Guru

Groove Improver
Irma, 1995. Used
Nice bit of funky stuff on Irma, and some tracks that have a bit of a dub twist at times. The best tracks have a nice electronic funk feel, with a straight ahead funk sound. Other tracks get a little too dubby for our taste, but they might sit well with you if you like other dubby acid jazz ... CD

Irma (Italy), 1999. Used
Very groovy batch of funky keyboard tracks, with a sound that hearkens back to early work by the James Taylor Quartet, and to some of the better Italian grooves from the early 90s! The group's led by Luca Trevisi and Ohm Guru, and the cuts have some nice little organ riffs with a swinging sound ... CD

The first really well-titled volume of this series – because this time around, the sound is a lot funkier than before! Over the past few years, Unique Records have been moving more strongly into funk-based territory – shedding some of their more dancefloor-oriented styles for heavier ... CD
