CD

✈

13 jazz dance classics from 70s Japan – all pulled together by Gonzalez Suzuki of Soul Bossa Trio! This set's the 5th installment in the ultra-hip Shibuya Jazz Classics series – and like the others, it offers a fantastic array of groovers that were mostly only issued in Japan back in the day, expertly chosen with a real feel for the modern scene! Nearly all the tracks feature work by keyboardist Naoya Matsuoka – a player who's equally great on acoustic piano as he is on electric keys, moog, and synth – always hitting some nicely punctuated notes, and sending the tunes along with a groove-happy approach that's greatly appreciated by our ears. The general feel is a lot like some of the 70s west coast fusion work of the time – particularly tracks on labels like Catalyst or Discovery – drenched in sunny influences from Latin and Brazilian music, all given a breezy Pacific spin. Titles in clude "If You Wanna Go Away", "Take 6 4 5", "The Man From Yoruba", "The Sun Also Rises", "Fiesta Fiesta", "Feeling So Nice", "Suppose It Rains", and "I Saw Zill One Day", all by Naoya Matsuoka – plus "Night Trip", "In The Morning", and "Antes De Mais Nada", all by Pacific Jam – a group that featured Matsuoka.  © 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.
