Roscoe Mitchell with Yuganaut — Four Ways ... CD 14.99

The first new Roscoe Mitchell album on Nessa Records in years – and a set that really lives up to his best experiments on the label back in the 70s! Mitchell's working here on flute, soprano, and alto sax – with the Yuganaut trio that includes Stephen Rush on a range of keyboards, trombone, melodica, ocarina, and even slide whistle – plus Geoff Mann on drums, cornet, and banjo – and Tom Abbs on bass, cello, violin, and didgeridoo! The range of instruments used on the long improvisations almost rivals that of the Art Ensemble back in the day – and the differing sonic textures that are produced allow Mitchell a great array of modes in which to respond with his reed lines – which are often a bit bolder and sharper than on some of his other recent albums. Titles include "Son Warship", "Cards For Yuganaut No 3", "Improvisation No 1", "Double Helix", "Improvisation No 3", and "Four Ways For Yuganaut & Roscoe Mitchell". (Barcode has a cutout hole. Back of jewel case has a promo sticker.)  © 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.

Nessa, 1981. Used
A great set from the Chicago scene – one recorded in the early 80s, but put together with a really timeless sound overall! The album's a rediscovery of tenorist Eddie Johnson – a player who'd been away from music for part of the 70s, but who returns beautifully here with a raspy tenor ... CD

Spare and beautiful work from pianist Ran Blake and vocalist Jeanne Lee – a record that follows a similar format to some of Blake's other sessions with singers, and which presents Lee's vocals in a powerfully unstripped mode! The set was recorded live in Jordan Hall at New England ... CD

One of the first moments of genius from a young Pharoah Sanders – a set that builds on the energy of John Coltrane's Love Supreme generation – but takes it in a much more expansive direction! The album's got a sense of majesty that's years ahead of its time – righteous, positive, ... CD

Coltrane plays the blues, but in a way like nobody else – stepping off of the deeply soulful sound of his late Prestige years, and moving into even more open and exploratory space for Atlantic! The setting is bare bones and simple – and many of these numbers begin with the sort of ... CD

Kind of a silly name, but a really great group – and one without any of the hoke you might expect! The sound is definitely what's promised, a meeting of samba rhythms and older American jazz – but there's a breezy sort of warmth to the record that's light years from standard boogie ... CD
