Action City

CD (Item 737918) Posi tone, 2014 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Only the second album as a leader from altoist Kenny Shanker – and already a great leap forward! The record features all original material penned by Shanker – really wonderful tunes that bring a freshness to the album right from the get-go, and which hold up strongly throughout! Instrumentation is from a core quintet – with Mike Eckroth on piano and Daisuke Abe on guitar – but some numbers have added percussion, which helps create a rhythmic complexity that really matches Kenny's fluid colors and tones on the alto! The leadoff track features Peyman Samghabadi on trombone – and titles include "Times Square", "Another Morning", "Action City", "Punch", "Shadow Dance", "Midnight", "Marble Hill", and "Riverbank At Dawn".  © 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.

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.

Ken Fowser

Standing Tall
Posi tone, 2016. Used
We last heard tenorist Ken Fowser in the company of vibist Behn Gillece – on a pair of excellent recent albums for the Posi-Tone label – but here he works as the sole leader, and maybe knocks it out of the park even more! All the tunes here are originals by Ken – who continues to ... CD

Josh Lawrence

Contrast
Posi tone, 2018. Used
Trumpeter Josh Lawrence works here with his Color Theory group – a great name for the combo, given how vivid they can be with their many hues! The music is soulful and swinging, yet also quite lyrical too – maybe in modes that recall some of the late 60s Blue Note work of McCoy Tyner ... CD

Color Theory
Posi tone, 2017. Used
Maybe the first album we've ever seen from trumpeter Josh Lawrence – and a set that will definitely have us looking out for more! Lawrence composed almost every tune on the set, and works with a sense of color that really lives up to the title – on lines that are sometimes nicely ... CD

Roxy Coss

Future Is Female
Posi tone, 2018. Used
Roxy Coss's second album as a leader for the Posi-Tone label – and it's her strongest to date, both by design and in performance! Where her Chasing The Unicorn album set up a whimsical sensibility, this one obliviously sets up a tone of strength and determination – undercurrents of all ... CD
Posi tone, 2016. Used
The title of the album might sound a bit whimsical, but the music of saxophonist Roxy Coss is hardly that at all – and instead a rock-solid approach to rhythm and tone that's very well-crafted throughout! The set features Roxy on saxes and bass clarinet – some shifting sonic elements ... CD

Lauren Sevian

Bliss
Posi tone, 2018. Used
Mighty strong work from Lauren Sevian – maybe one of the few female baritone saxophonists we can think of, and a hell of a bold talent – from her work on the reeds to her range of strong material composed for the album! The whole thing comes on with a force that we really weren't ... CD

Ralph Bowen

Ralph Bowen
Posi tone, 2017. Used
The title and cover here are super-simple, but the sound is anything but – a continuing evolution of the talents of tenorist Ralph Bowen, who just seems to grab us more and more with each new album! The core of the record is the long "Phylogeny Suite", which has some of the most ... CD

Sonny Rollins

Tenor Madness
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used
A groundbreaking album from Sonny Rollins, largely for the extended track "Tenor Madness", which runs on for 13 minutes, and features him and Coltrane blowing head to head – redefining the sound of the tenor sax in jazz through the course of that amazing track! Backing is by the ... CD
