Heart Beat

CD (Item 801472) Savant, 2016 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
You can hear the heart beat from the very first note of this set from pianist Bill O'Connell – a warm pulse that stakes out the action, and calls the rhythms into play – which in this case include the strong array of percussionists you'd expect from the Latin All-Stars tag! Bill arranged the set, and composed most numbers – and there's a mixture of Latin roots and jazz-based complexities that takes us back to some of Eddie Palmieri's best experiments of the 70s, and the wealth of west coast Latin jazz work to follow in that mode during more recent years! The group features some well-crafted work from Conrad Herwig on trombone – no stranger to projects like this – as well as alto, soprano, and flute from Steve Slagle, who sounds more soulful here than we remember. There's a bit of vocals on the record – sung by Melvis Santa on three tracks, and Roman Diaz on one more – but the whole thing's much more instrumentally focused overall, with some excellent solo work over the rhythms! Titles include the originals "Wake Up", "Peace On Earth", "Heart Beat", "Tabasco", and "Vertigo" – plus nice takes on Jobim's "Waters Of March" and Wayne Shorter's "ESP".  © 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.

Milestone/Savant, 2003. Used
A really fantastic record from reedman Jim Snidero – one that hints at its sound with the "strings" in the title – even though that's just a really tiny part of the overall picture! There's lots more going on here than just a saxophonist with strings – this isn't a ... CD

The scene may be changing, but nothing can dampen the fire of the great Bud Powell – and, if anything, this fifth installment in Blue Note's "Amazing" series may well have the pianist at his mature best! The rhythm duo are wonderful – more late 50s modern hardbop than some of ... CD

Blue Note, 1964. Used
One of our top 5 favorite Blue Note records of all time – a bold and powerful session from trumpeter Lee Morgan, but one that sat in the vaults for 15 years before release! The session was recorded around the same time as Morgan's hit The Sidewinder (which eclipsed its release at the time) ... CD

A later classic from Sun Ra – a record that brought his music to a much wider audience in the 80s, and which bears one of his most beautiful cover shots ever! The record's got a wonderfully tight feel – a sound that's often not as out as Saturn sides, and which shows Ra's ability to ... CD
