CD


A searing second session from the trio of Jonas Kullhammar on reeds, Torbjorn Zetterberg on bass, and Espen Aalberg on drums – all working here at a level that's even more mindblowing than the first Basement Sessions album! The music has this tremendous feel of cohesive collaboration – players that really know each other, and how to find just the right sort of space for their strengths together – a quality that really comes through in the strong, long rhythmic pulse of most tracks – which provide some of the strongest showcase for the bass work of Zetterberg that we've heard in years. Kullhammar's extremely expressive, too – really hitting the most soulful side of his style on tenor, soprano sax, and tarogato. But Aalberg may well be the real hero of the date – as his drum work is impeccable, and he also composed most of the tracks on the record! Titles include "Oort Cloud", "Triton", "One For Joe", "Elvin's Birthday Song", and "Moksha". (Punch through barcode.)  © 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.
