Lenny White — Big City ... LP 6.99
A great little album by Lenny White – nicely restrained in the best moments, with less of the heavy-hitting fusion sound that you'd hear on his other albums – and even done with a strong current of funk, which really sends the whole thing home in a great way! Space jazz maestro Pat Gleeson produced the album with Lenny – and also plays quite a bit of synth on the album – and we're convinced that it's Pat's subtler jazz talents that really make this one shine – those cool keyboards, and strong sense of balance that he brought to his own albums, and other productions of the time. Highlights include the spiritual soul number "Sweet Dreamer", with vocals by Linda Tillery and keyboards by Herbie Hancock – and the tight "Big City" groove, which features great contributions from both Brian Auger's Oblivion Express, and the Tower Of Power Horns. Other tracks include "The Ritual", "Rapid Transit", "And We Meet Again", "Enchanted Pool Suite", and "Ritmo Loco".  © 1996-2023, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
