German trombonist Albert Manglesdorff goes toe-to-toe with an amazing line-up of avant garde mainstays in duet settings for this MPS classic – including Don Cherry, Elvin Jones, Karl Berger, Attila Zoller, Lee Konitz, and Wolfgang Dauner! The format is simple; each of the seven tracks was blueprinted by Manglesdorff for his thick, punchy trombone blasts to mix it up with one other guy and their respective instrument. The wild lead off track "I Dig It – You Dig It" is a killer – pairing Albert with Don Cherry's trumpet. The duo trade long, fluid lines that descend into atonal sputters and thumps, and even seem to mimic wild animal gestures before falling back into formation! Another standout is the cut "Outox" with guitarist Atilla Zoller, whom Mangelsdorff found a groove with on the late 60s festival scene. Other tracks include "My Kind Of Time" with frenetic drumming by Elvin Jones, "Way Beyond Cave" with pounding vibes by Karl Berger, "Al-Lee" with alto sax by Lee Konitz, and the closer "My Kind Of Beauty" with piano by Wolfgang Dauner. It's all crisply remastered, and nicely packaged, too!  © 1996-2018, 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.
