Angel Face

CD (Item 633550) Tenacious, 2011 — Condition: Used
$14.99 ...

CD

One of the straightest jazz sets we've ever heard from drummer Alphonse Mouzon – and one of the greatest to be issued on his Tenacious label as well! The set was put together over the space of a decade or more – and the cuts are overflowing with top-shelf talent – assembled by Mouzon for the album, and recorded with a tight, soulful groove that's very much in the best spirit of recent sessions on labels like Savant or HighNote – or some of those great soul jazz sessions on Muse from the late 80s/early 90s. The groups shift from track to track – mostly in a quintet mode, with players that include Arturo Sandoval and Wallace Roney on trumpet; Ernie Watts, Bob Mintzer, Don Menza, Charles Owens, and Antoine Roney on tenor; Cedar Walton and Kenny Barron on piano, Christian McBride and Henry Franklin on bass, and Mouzon himself (of course!) on drums. Titles include "Stepping Stone", "A Labor Of Love", "Birds On a Wire", "Blues Clues", "More Miles In The Sky", and "I Wonder Why".  © 1996-2022, 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.

Blue Note, 1958. Used
The scene may be changing, but nothing can dampen the fire of the great Bud Powell – and, if anything, this fifth installment in Blue Note's "Amazing" series may well have the pianist at his mature best! The rhythm duo are wonderful – more late 50s modern hardbop than some of ... CD

Lee Morgan

Tom Cat
Blue Note, 1964. Used
One of our top 5 favorite Blue Note records of all time – a bold and powerful session from trumpeter Lee Morgan, but one that sat in the vaults for 15 years before release! The session was recorded around the same time as Morgan's hit The Sidewinder (which eclipsed its release at the time) ... CD

Black Saint (Italy), 1987. Used
A later classic from Sun Ra – a record that brought his music to a much wider audience in the 80s, and which bears one of his most beautiful cover shots ever! The record's got a wonderfully tight feel – a sound that's often not as out as Saturn sides, and which shows Ra's ability to ... CD

Bunker/Flashback, 1972. Used
One of the darkest albums of the Krautrock scene in the 70s – an album that was actually recorded in a WWII-era bunker – where the duo were free to open up their instruments, jam for a very long time, and play with the sorts of effects and techniques you might know from bigger groups of ... CD

Mott The Hoople

Mott
Sony, 1973. Used
A fantastic classic – the kind of record that will remind you that Mott The Hoople were way more than a glam band with a big radio hit – as there's a depth, complexity, and completely satisfying quality to the record that holds on all the way through! Sure, the group's got fantastic ... CD
