CD

A rare moment in time – documented in this legendary meeting of two American modernists on the European scene of the 60s! The session features a 1965 performance by the George Russell Sextet, but is especially noteworthy for the presence of Don Cherry – making a key guest appearance on the record during immediate post-Ornette modes, and really stretching out into a very different sound with Russell! Russell's still very much in the grip of his "lydian mode" writing of the 50s – which is great, because Russell's modalism was a strong influence on the sound of other MPS/Saba artists of the 60s. The group features Bertil Loevgren on trumpet alongside Cherry, plus Brian Trentham on trombone, Ray Pitts on tenor, Cam Brown on bass, and Albert Heath on drums. Titles include a great extrapolation on "You Are My Sunshine" – plus "Lydia and Her Friends", "Lydia In Bag's Groove", "Lydia Round Midnight", "Lydia's Confirmation", "Oh Jazz Po Jazz", "Volupte", and "Freein' Up".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Jazz Workshop
RCA/Koch, 1956. Used
Very hip early work from George Russell – a set that's maybe not as high-concept as some of his later records, but which still has a strikingly modern vibe! Russell's trying out some of his new tonal ideas here – and has a group that's very well-chosen for the project – with Art ... CD

Don Ellis

Soaring
MPS (Germany), 1973. Used Gatefold
A well-titled album from trumpeter Don Ellis – as the set soars to the skies from the very first note! The album's got a dynamic energy that almost beats Don's American work of the time – lots of funky rhythms, and a cool MPS groove that shows the label's strong 70s legacy of larger ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1969. Used
Funky vibes, electric sitar, and a madly tripped-out album – one of the best of the MPS psychedelic jazz sessions from the end of the 60s! Back in the US, Dave Pike was always a pretty straight vibist – but he's working here with his European combo that included the legendary Volker ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1971. Used
An album with a groove as fluid as you might guess from the title – and from the nicely stretched image of Oscar Peterson on the cover! The album's one of the best-remembered from Oscar's years at MPS – a session that's got almost as much soul jazz at the bottom as it does the fluid ... CD

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Used 2 CDs
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ... CD
