$13.99 ...

Mark Murphy — Kerouac, Then & Now ... LP 11.99

Mark Murphy's second album of jazz tracks by, about, and dedicated to Jack Kerouac. This one's got Mark reading from Big Sur and On The Road, plus doing a bit of a Lord Buckley monologue – all of which have musical accompaniment. He also sings a version of Billy Strayhorn's "Blood Count", lays down a few standards, and pays a nice tribute to Eddie Jefferson.  © 1996-2019, 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.

Capitol, Early 60s. Used
Although vocalist Mark Murphy is always closely identified with the light breezy jazz sound that he forged during his 70's recordings for Muse, he began his career as a fairly straight ahead interpreter of popular and jazz material for labels like Decca and Capitol. The Capitol sides have always ... CD

Mark Murphy Sings
Muse, 1975. Used
Arguably the best Mark Murphy album ever – a stunningly soulful, and slightly spiritual 70s session that features some of his hippest tunes ever – and backings from a Dave Matthews-arranged group that also includes The Brecker Brothers and Don Grolnick on keyboards! Titles include ... CD
Song For The Geese
RCA/Reverso, 1997. Used
Recent work by Mark Murphy – but as sublime as most of his best stuff from the 70s! The set was recorded in Europe, with the kind of respectful backing you'd expect from a scene that's loved Murphy's work for years – and which have done quite a bit to keep his unique style of jazz ... CD
I'll Close My Eyes
Muse, 1994. Used
Not a bad record from Murphy, but he's sort of biding his time here – working through some pretty boring mellow tunes, and occasionally hitting some tunes with a bit more of a groove, but none of the majestic power of his best earlier recordings. The record features backing by a group that ... CD
Lucky To Be Me
High Note, 2002. Used
Great new work from Mark Murphy – a real no-nonsense, back-to-basics session that really recalls the greatness of some of his 70s classics. The set's got small combo backing, and Mark's doing a fair bit of traditional jazz standards – but the feel of the album is wonderful, gently ... CD
Jazz Standards
Muse/32 Jazz, 1970s/1980s. Used 2 CDs
A great 2CD set that brings together some of Mark Murphy's best recordings for the legendary Muse label – one that has a focus on the more standard sides sung by Murphy, but in true Murphy mode, also has some really surprising moments! Murphy's work for the label really helped redefine the ... CD
