Talk Of The Town – Live At The Bimhuis

CD (Item 768623) Sunnyside, 1992 — Condition: Used
2 CDs
Out Of Stock


Tremendous material from the great pianist Sal Mosca – over two hours of continuous performance, recorded in the later years of his career, and issued here for the first time ever! If you loved Mosca during the Tristano-school years of the 50s, you'll be really stunned at his performance here – as he's really moved way beyond his roots, into a realm of sound and space that Lennie Tristano hardly could have imagined – both modern and lyrical at the same time, but reaching back with some older inflections that flesh out the tonal color of the music too – especially breathtaking without any other players to expand the sound. The album's an instant classic in Mosca's too-small catalog – and titles include improvisations on "Tea For Two", "Love For Sale", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Donna Lee", "I Got Rhythm", "Topsy", "Gone With The Wind", and lots more.  © 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.

A beautifully personal take on the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim – served up in a set of solo recordings by pianist Fred Hersch, who really moves the tunes from their bossa roots into a space that's all his own! Hersch often takes a core theme of a tune, and works it over with a very ... CD

Havin' A Good Time In Paris
Inner City, 1952. Used
Dizzy Gillespie plays here with the great Don Byas on tenor sax – joining Diz on two different Parisian dates from early 1952, both of them pretty darn sweet! The first session here is quite unusual – in that it features Humberto Cano on congas – bringing in a bit of a Cubop ... CD

Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, & Bob Brookmeyer

Stretching Out
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1958. Used
A very well-titled album – as it definitely features Zoot Sims and Al Cohn stretching out – pushing their groove a bit more than on some of their tightly-composed mid 50s sessions for RCA! The lineup is still slightly large – an octet that features Zoot and Al on tenor, plus the ... CD

Miles Davis

Warner, 1986. Used
A nice collaboration between Miles and Marcus Miller from the latter part of Miles career. As much of the recording here is overdubbed, with many multiple instruments played by Miller, it doesn't have the improvised vibe of Miles' classic performances, but the songwriting and arrangements are head ...
