Blue Impressions – Blue Note DJ Mix By Mitsu The Beats

CD (Item 665935) Blue Note (Japan), 1960s/1970s/2004 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Amazing stuff – a brilliant blend of the best funky tunes from Blue Note – put together in the spirit of Madlib's project for the label, and even featuring some moments from that set! Mitsu is a bit more respectful of the original tunes, and takes many of them whole – but he links them together in a seamless way, and brings out the best elements with some careful production, plus a sound that goes especially for the sweetest electric moments of the early 70s! Tracks in the mix include "Rain Every Thursday" and "Cirrus" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Abdullah & Ibraham" by Chico Hamilton, "Koko & Lee Roe" by Gene Harris, "New York Times (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Tuesday Heartbreak" by Ronnie Foster, "Uno Esta" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Distant Land" by Donald Byrd, "Montara (Roots rmx)" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Alfie's Theme" by John Patton, "Sweet Pea" by Booker Ervin, and "Who Knows What" by Brother Jack McDuff.  © 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.
