Straphangin

CD (Item 914763) Arista (Japan), 1981 — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...

CD

It's our bet that the Brecker Brothers probably weren't straphanging on their way to work in this point in their careers – given the classy, professional sound of this set – which was more likely to earn them a ride in a limo than a place in the subway! But we certainly don't hold that professionalism against them – because the BBs manage to groove here with a sharpness and depth that most of their smoother fusion contemporaries just weren't hitting – an edge that reminds us of the deeper roots these guys had before they started hitting the mainstream. And, given the date of the session, things are still pretty great overall – much more in a mid 70s fusion mode, with keyboards and drum bits that come out plenty hard next to the horns. Titles include "Threesome", "Straphangin", "Bathsheba", "Jacknife", and "Not Ethiopia".  © 1996-2019, 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.

The Brecker Brothers return – and update their jazz funk groove for the 90s! The sound here is a bit more contemporary than the duo's classics of the 70s – more programmed beats and heavy keyboards – but there's still plenty of warmer jazz elements too, not just in the tenor from ... CD
