Donny McCaslin — Beyond Now ... CD 11.99

Reedman Donny McCaslin's been making records for many years now – but he also seems to have gotten a new sort of inspiration from his work with David Bowie on his final recording – at a level that really seems to influence his sound here! The record's still very much a jazz session – but it's also got rhythms, flourishes, and other elements that Donny wouldn't have used a few short years ago – not just a bit of keyboards, which seem used to extrapolate the Bowie/Eno themes from Berlin – but also a more angular approach to his solos, which seems to create an inherent set of rhythm in the way he blows his tenor and flute. The album's dedicated to Bowie, but is hardly any sort of Bowie tribute or cover album – although the group does do a wonderful reading of "Warszawa", which comes out great as an instrumental. Other players include Jason Lindner on keyboards, Tim Lefebvre on electric bass, and Mark Guiliana on drums – and Jeff Taylor sings briefly on "A Small Plot Of Land". All other titles are instrumentals – and include "Remain", "Glory", "Faceplant", "Bright Abyss", "Beyond Now", and "Coelacanth 1". (Mark through barcode.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Randy Weston's much more than a storyteller here – as the album's got a full force that moves beyond any strictly-personal work on piano – and instead goes for some of the best African-influenced styles that Weston first started working out at the end of the 50s! The album's core ... CD
