Solid

CD (Item 787824) Muse, 1986 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
One of Woody's last albums – a back to basics set, recorded with a group that include Kenny Garret on alto sax, Kenny Barron on piano, and guest guitar work on one track by Peter Leitch. The approach is straight modal hardbop – in the spirit of Woody's first recordings for Muse – and although his genius seems to have faltered a bit, his work here is still incredibly solid, much more so than most other trumpeters of his generation, and still expressed in a preference for easily grooving longer tracks. Titles include "Speak Low", "Solid", "There Will Never Be Another You", "It Might As Well Be Spring", and "The Woody Woodpecker Song".  © 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 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.

Woody Shaw

Rosewood
CBS, 1978. Used
Woody Shaw's debut for Columbia Records – and easily one of the most soulful major label jazz sessions of the 70s! The album's a beautiful summation of all that Shaw had done in the years before – his soaring, searing lines that first came to play as a sidemen for others, then took new ... CD

James Spaulding

Brilliant Corners
Muse, 1989. Used
A great take on the music of Thelonious Monk – recorded with special sensitivity by reedman James Spaulding, who ensures that the sound goes way past the usual Monk-styled outing! Things start out in relatively familiar territory, but as the record progresses it really opens up – as ... CD

Sonny Stitt

In Style
Muse, 1981. Used
Plenty of style here – a great later date from Sonny Stitt – one of those near-perfect gems from the years when he had fallen far from the mainstream of jazz, but could still blow with some of the best! There's a simple, almost understated quality to the date that's really wonderful ... CD

Buck Hill

Impulse
Muse, 1992. Used
Buck Hill blows mean and lean here – working in a quartet with a solidly soulful finish, one that's perfect for his well-schooled sound on the tenor sax! The album's got a really non-nonsense feel – production from Houston Person that keeps the sound plenty clean, and very focused on ... CD

Cecil Brooks III

Collective
Muse, 1989. Used
Nice later Muse work from Cecil Brooks III – working here with a "collective" that includes Gary Thomas on tenor, Greg Osby on alto, Geri Allen on piano, and Lonnie Plaxico on bass. Tracks are all quite soulful, and have that strong in the pocket groove we've come to love in Brooks' ... CD

Wallace Roney

Obsession
Muse, 1990. Used
Wallace Roney on trumpet, Gary Thomas on tenor saxophone and flute, Donald Brown on piano, Christian McBride on bass, and Cindy Blackman on drums. CD
Muse, 1988. Used
A well crafted set of tunes – both modern and soulful, in keeping with the rich talents of James Spaulding! The album sports a stupid title, but it's actually a thoughtful batch of tracks dedicated to African American achievement and expression – featuring Spaulding on alto sax and ... CD

Johnny Lytle

Moonchild (Muse)
Muse, 1991. Used
A later set by soul jazz vibist Johnny Lytle – but a great one too, and a date that's done with a straight ahead mode that shows he's still swinging hard! The record's a bit less groove-oriented than some of Lytle's earlier efforts, but in ways that really focus on his longer-wind chops as a ... CD

Jay Hoggard

Fountain
Muse, 1991. Used
A fountain of flowing work on vibes from the great Jay Hoggard – a player who seems to be a bit more forceful here than usual, although still often giving to his usually spacious style! The group's a quintet, with some great guitar work from Kenny Burrell – played in an open-handed way ... CD

Sonny Stitt

Tune-Up!
Muse, 1972. Used
By this point in his career, Sonny hardly needed a tune up in his style – but the album's a great one from his post-Prestige years, and a real back-to-basics effort that recalls the genius of his work on Roost! The format is straight and simple – Stitt's tenor and alto fronting a ... CD

Michael Carvin

Revelation
Muse, 1989. Used
The music of Michael Carvin is always a revelation – a joyous, soulful outpouring of feeling that never fails to move us – and which always makes us wonder why more folks don't treasure gems like this that he made as a leader! Carvin's drum work is filled with energy from the get-go ... CD
