Sorrows & Triumphs

CD (Item 881804) Sunnyside, 2017 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


The poetic title here really fits the mood of this well-crafted album from pianist Edward Simon – a fantastically vivid blend of jazz instrumentation from the core Afinidad quartet with elements from the Iani Winds, and some great guest work from Gretchen Parlato on vocals and Adam Rogers on guitar! The colorful images on the cover is perfect for the sound of the set – which has this sun rising quality that illuminates Simon's talents in a way we've never heard before – some deeper ideas that are never too full of themselves, and which instead find very elegant expression with help from David Binney on alto, Scott Colley on bass, and Brian Blade on drums. Parlato isn't on every track, but really shines when dhe does appear – and the woodwind quintet features flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, and French horn. Titles include "Uninvited Thoughts", "Triangle", "Venezuela Unida", "Equanimity", "Rebirth", "Triumphs", and "Chant".  © 1996-2023, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
