The set definitely lives up to the name here – as the album bristles with plenty of energy, and goes way beyond the singular star power of its leader! Instead, the quartet action is very equally weighted – rhythms as angular as the reeds from Branford – and piano from Joey Calderazzo that really pushes and propels the tunes along with a great sort of energy! Drums are by Justin Faulkner and bass by Eric Revis – two great players who really leap along strongly throughout – using these blocky modes that really make for a refreshing change – and titles include "The Mighty Sword", "Maestra", "Teo", "As Summer Into Autumn Slips", "My Ideal", and "Endymion". Also includes the bonus track "Treat It Gentle". (Out of print.)  © 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.
