CD

2 of Les' funky albums for Atlantic from the mid 70s – out again on reissue in their full electric glory! The records are a good example of how Les moved from being a mostly instrumental artist, and transformed himself into a funky soul singer for most of the 70s. The tracks have a warm spiritual sound that works well with Les' voice – which is not always technically perfect, but definitely full of soul. Titles include "You Little Cheat", "What's Going On", "Shamading", "North Carolina", "Let It Lay", "What is it That We Have To Do To Let Our Children Grow", and "Hand From The Crowd". 15 cuts in all!  © 1996-2022, 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.

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.

Les McCann

Live At Montreux
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1972. Used
The 70s genius of Les McCann – opened up here wonderfully in the space of a double-length live performance! Tracks are all nice and long – and Les steps out strongly on Fender Rhodes and clavinet, ringing out with amazing tones that are really wonderful – kind of the electric ... CD

Les McCann

On The Soul Side
Music Masters, 1994. Used
Features guest saxophone from Eddie Harris and guest vocals from Lou Rawls! CD
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Used
A killer live set by Les McCann – a rare 60s outing that moves past his more familiar trio format, and adds some horn players to the mix! The change is wonderful – as the set features work from Blue Mitchell on trumpet, and both Stanley Turrentine and Frank Haines on tenor – ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, 1960s. Used 2 CDs
Includes work with Richard Groove Holmes, Gerald Wilson, Stanley Turrentine, Lou Rawls, and Eddie Harris. 21 tracks total. CD

Jan Akkerman

Jan Akkerman
Atlantic/WEA (Germany), 1978. Used
A very different album than usual from Jan Akkerman – but in a really nice way! The album's not nearly as guitar-heavy and rock-leaning as some of Jan's other sets from the 70s – and has a bubbling sort of soul-based finish, one that's arranged by Akkerman with some help from Mike ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 60s. Used 7 CDs & Book
An amazing set of work by John Coltrane – some of his best recordings ever, tracks that form a pivotal point between his later 50s work with Miles Davis and his mid 60s spiritual searching years. The set's unbelievably exhaustive – and includes every track that was ever issued by ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Mid 70s/1980s/Early 90s. Used 2 CDs
Features work with Patrice Rushen, Allan Holdsworth, Allan Zavod, and others. Includes 32 tracks on 2 CDs. CD
Atlantic, 1957. Used
Angular Monk meets hard-driving Art Blakey – in a session that's quite unique, and which has gone onto become one of the best-remembered Atlantic jazz sessions of the late 50s! The album features Blakey in that key non-Blue Note year of 1957 – a time when he was working with a variety ... CD

Jimmy Giuffre

Jimmy Giuffre Clarinet
Atlantic/Collectables, 1956. Used
Beautiful work from Jimmy Giuffre – and a key album in the development of his spare sound of the late 50s! The record features Jimmy on clarinet – as you'd guess by the title – but this is no hokey set of Benny Goodman or Buddy DeFranco-type tunes. Instead, Giuffre's using the ... CD
Atlantic, 1973. Used
Kind of a meeting of two different generations of Dave Brubeck – as the group here features Paul Desmond's alto sax, a key force in Dave's early recordings – and the baritone sax of Gerry Mulligan, a player who'd worked often with Brubeck in the late 60s and early 70s! The blend of ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 60s. Used 6 CD + Book
We'll be honest with you – we love this stuff! Sure, Ornette made some great recordings for a number of other labels – but as a whole, his Atlantic stuff is some of the greatest modern jazz ever recorded, and no other period of an artist is more worth collecting and having in a ... CD
Atlantic, 1960. Used
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
