El Cumbanchero

CD (Item 641658) Jazzheads, 2011 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


A charanga-based project from Mark Weinstein – but like most of Mark's work, an extremely creative outing that goes way past the obvious! The instrumentation is definitely in a charanga mode – lots of percussion, piano, bass, and tight violin lines – plus totally amazing work on flute from Weinstein – who soars, dips, turns, and leaps with a joyous energy that goes way past any charanga flute work of the 60s. But there's also a fuller sound here, too – thanks to complicated arrangements by Aruan Ortiz, which reference history, but go way past it – creating a sophisticated depth, but one that still swings nicely. Titles include "Aruanco", "El Cumbanchero", "La Mulata Rumbera", "Dona Olga", "Danzon De Liz", "Contigo En La Distancia", and "Perla Marina".  © 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Monty Alexander

Yard Movement
Island, 1995. Used
A great little 90s album from pianist Monty Alexander – done for the short-lived Jamaica Jazz segment of Island Records, and in a mode that's a bit different than some of the straighter jazz records that Alexander had been cutting for years! Monty's Caribbean roots were never a secret, and ... CD

Verve/Universal (Japan), 1989. Used
A lovely blend of fusion and Brazilian roots – and one of Toninho Horta's standout sets from his US years at Verve! The album's got a warm, organic feel that's quite different from other American fusion of the time – still filled with some of the influences that drove that music in the ... CD
