Studio Live Best

CD (Item 665460) Shichigosan (Japan), 2012 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


If you think you know Jazztronik, think again – because this beautiful set has the group working live in the studio – all spontaneous, without any overdubs or added programming – in a mode that's even more soulful than before, and which really represents a great progression for the Jazztronik style! As you'd guess from the name, there's always been plenty of jazz in their music – but this time around, the liveness really makes things crackle – and brings in an even deeper vibe and sense of humanity to their whole groove – whether the cuts are vocal numbers with a soulful finish, or some of the more cosmic instrumentals. Not really club jazz, but something even greater – and a tremendous achievement for Ryo Nozaki – one that's got us loving his music all over again! Titles include "Love Tribge", "Tiger Eyes", "Mista Swing", "Black Dragon", "Voyage", "Butterfly Dance", "Saumrai", and "Beauty Flow" – all done in new versions here.  © 1996-2019, 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.

Pony Canyon (Japan), 2018. Used
The first music we've heard in quite awhile from Jazztronik – and a set that has them sounding even more funk-oriented than before! We've always loved the creations of leader Ryota Nozaki – even his mellower moments – but this time around, he really steps into new territory by ... CD


Go! Discs, 1994. Used
At this point, we hardly need to tell you what this is about. To many, a genre-defining period classic: haunting vocals, dark, spacey production, and beats so slow, you wonder if your turntable isn't busted. "Sour Times" was the one that put them over the top, and spawned too many ... CD


Go Beat/London, 1997. Used
The second Portishead LP, even spookier and darker than the first, but still with an infectious groove running underneath. Strings, brass and cinematic guitar all coalesce under Beth Gibbons for the signature unsettling Portishead sound. Eleven tracks in all, including "Cowboys", "A ... CD
Studio K7 (Germany), Late 90s. Used 2 CDs
The German studio geniuses go to town on some of the best work of the late 90s – remixing a host of tracks that range from the junglist musings of Birtish artists like Roni Size and Alex Reece, to the jazzier riffings of the Compost crew. Remixed titles include "Heroes" by Roni Zie ... CD

Massive Attack

Virgin, 1994. Used
Strong second album from Massive Attack! Protection sets the stage with stunning one-two punch of the title track and "Karmacoma" – 13+ minutes of flawless, hypnotic trip hop with a strong sense of moody soul, thanks in the always impeccable (to this point, anyway) production and ... CD
Alafia, 2000. Used
The first album as a leader by trumpeter Jafar Barron – an underground player who's worked with The Roots, Erykah Badu, King Britt, and others – breaking out here on his own at the head of his own freebop group. The record's very much in the mode of some of the work of newer soul jazz ... CD

Yellow (France), 2002. Used
Incredibly lovely work from the team of Thomas Naim and Joyce Hoze – their first full length album, and a beautiful set of tracks! The album shows a depth that we'd hardly have guessed at from the duo's earlier singles – a strong Brazilian groove that's much more than just a bossa-remix ... CD


EMI, 1991. Used
All the classics, but remixed with a very techno feel. We were about to say unfortunately, but even with the "updated" sound, their sublime genius shows through, and some of the mixes are largely untouched. Includes "The Robots", "Computerlove", "Pocket ... CD
