CD

✈

Junior's the Big Chief on this one – coming down hard and soulfully on the keys, in a style that's sprightly, yet which also matches the more soul-drenched styles of some of his early 60s contemporaries! The backing is surprisingly sensitive at times – with contemplative bass from Jimmy Rowser, and soft-then-hard drums from Paul Gusman – a great player who really makes this set sparkle nicely. And Junior's work on the keys is pretty darn great too – freed from some of the cliches that might creep into a session like this, and really matching the sensitivity of the rhythm on the best numbers. Titles include "Swish", "Filet Of Soul", "The Seasons", "Big Chief", "Summertime", and "Little Miss Gail".  © 1996-2021, 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.
