Written In The Rocks

CD (Item 809358) Smoke Sessions, 2016 — Condition: Used

CD

✈

One of the most compelling albums we've heard from pianist Renee Rosnes in a long time – a set that features Rosnes working at the head of a very hip quintet with Steve Nelson on vibes and Steve Wilson on alto, flute, and soprano sax! Both of the Steves really open up the sound here – taking the music into deeper, more ambitious territory than usual for Renee – especially as the core of the album is built around the extended "Galapagos Suite", which features these patterns of shifting colors and shades that are especially great in the way they combine the piano and Nelson's vibes. The rest of the group features the mighty Peter Washington on bass and Bill Stewart on drums – and titles include "Goodbye Mumbai", "Lucy From Afar", "Written In The Rocks", "The KT Boundary", "So Simple A Beginning", and "From Here To A Star".  © 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.

David Boykin Expanse

47th Street Ghost
Dreamtime, 2002. Used
Excellent work from Chicago reed player David Boykin – a much more straight ahead album than some of his earlier work, but done with an edge that keeps it in the ranks of the AACM tradition that has informed much of Boykin's music from the start. Boykin is on sax and clarinet – and the ... CD

Shape Of Jazz To Come
Atlantic, 1959. Used

Richard Wyands on piano, Peter washington on bass, and Kenny Washington on drums. CD
Savoy, 1957. Used
One of the rarest Art Blakey sessions of the late 50s – recorded during that brief time when the Jazz Messengers featured Jackie McLean on alto sax! The set's recorded with an edge that's perhaps a bit rougher than some of the other Blakey records during this "many labels" stretch ... CD
Sire, 1984/1999. Used

Flower (Japan), 2002. Used
A warm and wonderful sampling of grooves from one of the hippest Japanese labels growing – the ever-soulful Flower Records, home to some of our best-selling artists on that high-priced Japanese wax!

The first full length album by Seek – one of the leading lights in the hip Atlanta scene that also includes Laurnea, Donnie, and Julie Dexter! The record's been in the works for years, but it's been worth waiting for – as the group's evolved into a really tight soul outfit with a great ... CD
