Sea Of Tranquility

CD

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

Beautifully subtle guitar work from Marcos Amorim – a musician who plays an electric instrument, but can often make it feel as if waves of sound are just cascading out gently into the air – more tone than attack on the strings, with this style that's deft, but very unassuming – and which works especially well with the Fender Rhodes lines used on a good number of tracks on the album! The balance is key to Amorim's talents – as the whole thing would be too smooth or slick in the hands of someone else, but still has that up-close, personal vibe we loved in Marcos' other albums for Adventure. Other instrumentation includes bass and drums – and singer Delia Fischer appears on a few of the album's tracks, although the set is mostly instrumental overall. Titles include "Bolero", "January Ashes", "Dance Of The Five Princesses", "Sea Of Tranquility", "The Further Away The Closer I Get", "Sea Time", and "My African Goddess".  © 1996-2018, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
