Radio Flyer

CD (Item 861264) Savant, 2017 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

Extremely angular work from tenorist JD Allen – working here with a quartet that's as loose on rhythms as he is on his saxophone solos – coming together in a style that's freewheeling and open-minded! The group features a strong element in the guitar of Liberty Ellman – used in ways that are sometimes quite subtle – with notes that ring out almost in the background of the work on drums by Rudy Royston, and the wonderfully powerful bass of Gregg August – whose force works in nice contrast to the more elliptical sounds coming from the drums and guitar. Allen's horn hangs somewhere in a space between both forces – shifting effortlessly through space, and twisting and turning in the process – serving up fantastic flurries of dark-edged sound on the album's long tracks. Royston is amazing – the album's a great testament to his growing power in recent years – and titles include "Daedalus", "Ghost Dance"," Heureux", "Radio Flyer", "Sitting Bull", and "The Angelus Bell".

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.
