Songs For Quintet

CD (Item 755750) ECM (Germany), 2015 — Condition: Used
Just Sold Out!

CD

✈
❔
An album that sits strongly in the long legacy of great recordings Kenny Wheeler has done for ECM – a set of quintet recordings that feature the leader's sublime flugelhorn lines in the company of a very well-matched group! The tunes are airy and open, but never too loose or meandering – and Wheeler's subtle sound has this great way of directing the energy – and getting equally great performances from Stan Sulzman on tenor, John Parricelli on guitar, Chris Laurence on bass, and Martin France on drums. The guitar has an especially great quality – these chromatic elements that serve to really unite the other individual sounds – and all songs are originals by Wheeler, with titles that include "Jigsaw", "Seventy Six", "The Long Waiting", "Canter No 1", "Sly Eyes", and "Nonetheless".  © 1996-2024, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
