Fantastic sounds from Monday Michiru – quite possibly her greatest album in years, and one that really draws together all the best elements of her style! The vocals are wonderful – soaring, fluid, and filled with soul – almost more confident than ever – and set to these small group jazz arrangements that still bounce around with lots of contemporary rhythms – yet all played live, almost in a clubjazz mode – which makes for a perfect backdrop for Monday's lyrics! As always, the vibe is righteous, and the spirit is totally uplifting – the kind of amazing music that's held us rapt, watching her career for the past two decades – never disappointed, and always blown away by the rich progression in her music. Monday plays a bit of flute on the record, Ed Motta sings guest vocals on a version of the Milton Nascimento classic "Bridges" – and other titles include "Adventures", "What Is In A Soul", "Map Of The Soul", "What Defines You", "Brasilianos", "Til Morning Comes Again", and "The Elusive Song".  © 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.

Vibe Alive
Expansion (UK), 1999. Used
An excellent batch of modern soul tunes – recorded with lots of smooth jazzy touches, not with "vibes", as you might guess by the title, but in the jazz inflected tradition of some of the greats of the late 70s mellow soul generation. Showing his roots clearly, Camelle starts off ... CD
Only You
Red Ant, 1998. Used

Brother Sister
Delicious Vinyl/Rhino, 1994. Used
The group's second real album, and one that never manages to totally capture the groove of the first – but which still has some pretty great writing and playing that set it apart from most of the soul of its generation! The cut "Dream On Dreamer" is one of those early 90s groovers ... CD
Fire In D Hole
Society Hill, 2015. Used
One of the more unusual artists on the Philly-revival label Society Hill – a singer who's younger than most of their roster, and who also has roots in the Caribbean too! Production and arrangements are by Butch Ingram, who gives the set a similar modern soul update to other projects for the ... CD
Yolanda
Yodyful Music, 2016. Used
Yolanda Rabun's got a great groove here – a sound that's even tighter, warmer, and jazzier than on her previous album – with all the poise and class you'd expect from her image on the cover! The instrumentation's nice and laidback – plenty of keyboards, and less of the beats that ... CD
In This Life Together
Hidden Beach/Sony, 2005. Used
The long-awaited second set from Kindred The Family Soul – a duo who really grabbed us with their excellent Surrender To Love, and who really follow up on its promise with this excellent set! Kindred have a totally righteous sound that's long steeped in traditions of soul and gospel – ... CD
Simply Blue
Verve (Japan), 2005. Used
Classy and sophisticated vocals from Akiko – a record that has the Japanese singer adding in a stronger jazz component to her music, while still keeping in the soulful territory we've always loved! The sound here is very classic – mostly done with small trio backing, and a moody, late ... CD
Verve (Japan), 2009. Used
Man, Akiko always knows how to keep things interesting – always moving between different genres and styles, to serve up a fresh new groove with each release! This set's got the singer hitting a host of British rock tunes, mostly from the 80s – doing them with a harder edge than you ... CD
Urban Grooves (Album II)
Internal Bass, 1999. Used
Titles include "A Little Touch Of Soul", "Phat City Hustler", "Joy Is A Good Groove", "Bump N Hustle", "To The Bone", "The Zodiac", and "Urban Jazz". CD
Motown, 1995. Used

Words
Verve (Japan), 2009. Used
Akiko takes another wonderful turn with her music – working here in an especially mellow setting, recorded in Bugge's Room in Oslo, with production from Bugge Wesseltoft himself! The album's got the soulful glow of some of the best Wesseltoft soul productions on Jazzland from years back ... CD
Spread The Word (Album III)
Internal Bass/Atlantic, 2001. Used
The third album from Down To The Bone – the smooth UK jazzy outfit that first struck big on the US steppers scene in the mid 90s. This 3rd album's possibly their strongest to date – filled with smooth jazz soloing over tightly compressed rhythms, perfect for the modern stepping groove ... CD
