A hell of a record from keyboardist and producer Brandon Williams – an artist who may well be the Larry Mizell of the 21st Century! Like Mizell, Brandon's a hell of a musician at the core – really strong and soulful on his work here – but also like Larry, Williams really has a great way of reaching out and working with others – a quality that's already gotten his music exposure on records by some other big artists, and which also opens the door here to include guest contributions from Jesse Boykins III, Robert Glasper, Frank McComb, Don Blackman, Bernard Wright, Pharoahe Monch, Nicholas Payton, Choklate, Deborah Bond, and others! That lineup should really give you an idea of the depth of this record – as Brandon finds a way to make all these great talents come together, while still letting all the individuals shine during their time in the spotlight – no egos ever taking things over, not even Brandon's own – as the album rolls along with a majestic blend of jazz and soul. Titles include "Intimidation", "Pinball Number Count", "Godsend", "Everything", "Now I Know", "Feel Free", "Yasmin", "Velas Icadas", and "Make Believe".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Polygram (Japan), 1998. Used
A real turning point for Monday Michiru – a set that has the Japanese singer moving into more complex rhythms than some of the straighter soul of her initial releases – really keeping things interesting as she stretches out lyrically too! Monday arranged and produced most of the record ... CD
Verve, 2009. Used 2CD
Damn great work from Ledisi – an artist who hasn't missed a beat since moving to the majors a few years back – sounding almost funkier than ever before, thanks to some impeccable production and razor-sharp instrumentation! Ledisi's vocals are beyond challenge – old school deep ... CD

Trina Broussard

Same Girl
Beacon Street/Motown, 2004. Used
The long-overdue debut from Trina Broussard – a singer who first leapt onto the scene years back with her single "Love You So Much", but who never got the chance to release a full LP! Trina's time has finally come, though – and from the sound of the set, it's been worth the ... CD

Brand New Heavies

Shelter
Delicious Vinyl, 1997. Used
An overlooked mid 90s set from The Brand New Heavies – not as hitbound as some of their earlier work, but still plenty darn great – recorded with a strong emphasis on the vocals, and a no-nonsense soul sound that's always refreshing! There's one or two instrumentals on the album, but ... CD

Omar

Music
Talkin' Loud (UK), 1992. Used
Omar's second album – a strong departure from the first! Unlike the first set, which Omar essentially recorded in his bedroom, this album's got the British soul genius working with much fuller production – a rich array of musical backings that really expand his style. The whole thing's ... CD

Remy Shand

Way I Feel
Motown, 2002. Used
Fantastic work by Remy Shand – one of the best soul singers we've heard in years! Despite his hipster looks, Remy's got a solid sound that's all-classic, all the way – deep and warm, with all the soulfulness of classic work by Marvin Gaye or Al Green, produced to perfection in a ... CD
Sy Smith, 2005. Used
Great work from one of the freshest new voices around – the lovely Sy Smith! Sy's got a cosmically-inflected musical vision here – one that seems to borrow bits from the London and Philly underground, but deliver an overall groove that's got plenty of sunny soulful touches! Sy uses ... CD

Incognito

Incognito Remixed
Verve/Suonaphone, 1996. Used
A great package that sees the work of Incognito getting remixes and souped up a bit more – jazzy grooves gone dancefloor, served up by a host of great talents from the mid 90s. Titles include "Always There (MAW rmx 96)", "Givin It Up (Rober Sanchez Uplifting club mix)", ... CD
