A wonderful pairing of talents – the ever-evolving vocals of Mary Stallings, and the rock-solid piano talents of Eric Reed! Stallings is one of those singers who just sounds better and better as the years go on – working with a depth and individual sense of structure that recalls Betty Carter or Sarah Vaughan in their later days – especially the latter, as Mary's got this way of crafting lyrical lines with a sense of space that's completely her own – as Reed relates in his notes on the session! The group also features a bit of bass from Reuben Rogers and drums from Carl Allen – although about a third of the set, if not more, features just piano and vocals. Titles include "Night Mist Blues", "Soul Eyes", "Key Largo", "Mary's Blues", 'People Time", "Don't Look Back", and "Is That". © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
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.
