Nicholas Payton — Afro-Caribbean Mixtape ... CD 13.99

One of the most unusual projects we've ever heard from trumpeter Nicholas Payton – a record that's not straight jazz, or a standard exploration of some of the roots that have influenced his music – and instead a wonderfully criss-crossing combination of sounds from the African diaspora – served up here in a way that really lives up to the title! Payton plays his usual trumpet, but also delivers sounds on Fender Rhodes, organ, and even a bit of vocals – in a vibrant group that also includes more Rhodes, cello, sound effects, turntables, percussion, and even a string ensemble – interspersed with vocal snippets from Art Blakey, Duke Ellington, Max Roach, and many others! Payton's always had a sense of history in his music – but this may well be the first time he's taken that history and focused it forward – really creating something new in the process. The double-length set gives him plenty of room to express and experiment – and titles include "La Guajira", "Jazz Is A Four Letter Word", "Bamboula", "Kimathi", "Madmwazel Ayiti", "Junie's Boogie", "Jewel", "Othello", "The Egyptian Second Line", and "Call & Response".  © 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.
