Our Man In Amsterdam

CD (Item 861064) Fuel 2000, 1969 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
Dexter Gordon on the European scene at the end of the 60s – blowing with that bold, well-formed tone that makes extended performances like this so great – almost a casebook lesson on tenor-based invention – set to some well-crafted rhythms by a trio that features Cees Slinger on piano, Jacques Schols on bass, and Han Bennink on drums! The players offer a nice change from some other Gordon dates of this nature – but still really let Dexter take the lead strongly on tenor – blowing openly on 9 minute-plus versions of "Fried Bananas", "What's New", "Good Bait", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Junior", and "Willow Weep For Me".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print and still sealed. Case has a small cutout hole.)

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.

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 list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

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.
