Jazz Nocturne

CD (Item 868041) Venus (Japan), 1994 — Condition: Used
$24.99 ...

CD

A great straight set from the later years of Lee Konitz – one that has the altoist swinging wonderfully in the company of pianist Kenny Barron! There's a soulful undercurrent to the record that really shows Barron's hand in the sound of the session – that mature groove that Kenny always brings to his own trio records, and his even better albums with a horn player – but part of the swing also comes from the talents of James Genus on bass and Kenny Washington on drums. Titles include "Misty", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Body & Soul", and "Alone Together".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print, 1993 pressing – includes obi.)

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.

Koch/Atlantic, 1957. Used
A gem by Lee Konitz – one of his near-perfect 50s sessions for Atlantic! Lee's tone here is crisp, clear, and hauntingly fresh – modern, yet never academically so – and played with a dexterity that's incredible, but never too in love with itself to go too far. Key players on the ... CD

True Ballads
Venus (Japan), 1996. Used
Some folks only know Archie Shepp as a hard-blowing avant player, but we're always more than happy to give him his due as a soulful interpreter of ballads – as you'll hear on a record like this, a real gem from his later years! The tunes are all familiar standards, but done the Shepp way, ... CD

Denny Zeitlin

As Long As There's Music
Venus (Japan), 1997. Used
Beautiful sounds from pianist Denny Zeitlin – one of those players who often gets overlooked, but who's made some incredibly expressive music over the years! The album's got a sparkle that really takes us back to Denny's 60s sides for Columbia, but it's also got a slightly more mature ... CD
