One of the most beautiful albums we've ever heard from Hajime Yoshizawa – a set that continues his move way past simple sounds for the dancefloor – into a continuing evolution that shows a much deeper jazz-based side of his talents! The album features lots of piano and keyboards from the leader, who also crafted this fuller orchestrations that are wonderful – soaring strings that work with the groove beautifully, giving the rhythms a loftier vibe and this righteous current that we never would have heard in his music years ago. Most rhythms are live, too – with a vibe that's like a small jazz combo, augmented with strings – with a nice focus on solos from musicians who include Makoto Oka on flute and Raymond McMorrin on tenor. There's a few vocal moments on the album, but most of the set is instrumental – and completely sublime. Titles include "A New Day", "Tower Of Water", "Sweet Black Sunshine", "American Deka-Cho", "Many Things To Worry", and "Innerillusions".  © 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.

Not the Philly soul group from the mid 70s, but rather the pairing of DJ Kent and KZA, peddling modern, soulful electronic grooves, with break inspired beats and tapestries of electronic tones bubbling over top.
