A great early set by singer Rita Reyes – one of Europe's greatest jazz vocalists of the time, and a singer with a sound that's right up there with June Christy or Chris Connor for small combo warmth! The backing on the set is by a trio that features pianist Bengt Hallberg on piano, Gunnar Johnson on bass, and Egil Johansen on drums – and Rita's got a style that's lively, but never overdone – a mode that matches the small combo setting well, but also seems to bring a bit more to the table. Titles include "Lullaby Of The Leaves", "After You've Gone", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "Three Little Words". © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
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.
