Nicole Mitchell — Maroon Cloud ... CD 13.99

Incredibly beautiful work from Nicole Mitchell – and a record that's maybe unlike anything we've ever heard from her before! The group's a quartet, and Mitchell plays flute in the lead – but the session also features Fay Victor on vocals, who has this magnificently dynamic style – moody one minute, very pointedly powerful the next – working with lyrics from Nicole that are a complete surprise to our ears! Victor's approach moves through a history of jazz vocal expression that recalls, at moments, the work of Honey Gordon with Charles Mingus, or some of Jeanne Lee's work with Ran Blake, and maybe even some of the more adventurous moments of Abbey Lincoln – given support alongside Mitchell's flute by the piano of Aruan Ortiz and cello of Tomeka Reid. Given Mitchell's already-strong legacy of recordings, this set is just another feather in her already-huge cap – on titles that include "Vodou Spacetime Kettle", "Warm Dark Realness", "No One Can Stop Us", "Endurance", "Hidden Choice", "A Sound", and "Constellation Symphony".  © 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.

Karma
Impulse, 1969. Used
Quite possibly the best-remembered album from Pharoah Sanders' legendary run at Impulse Records – a set that crossed over big, and sold to countless folks who might not have bought a jazz album this hip otherwise! The record was Sanders' first in the wake of Coltrane's passing – and it' ... CD

Blue Note, 1962. Used
A young Jackie McLean at the height of his powers – really stretching out here, but never going too far out – a perfect balance between his modern bop of previous records, and his groundbreaking "new thing" jazz to come! The group is a relatively straight ahead one – ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used
An album of incredible beauty – and one of the key early sides that Shorter cut for Blue Note! It's nearly impossible to describe the genius of these records without playing them – and upon playing, all words disappear in the brilliance of Shorter's incredible tone, solo imagination, ... CD

Wayne Shorter & Milton Nascimento

Native Dancer
Columbia, 1975. Used
A beautiful little album, very different than Wayne Shorter's other work, and sort of a "return of the favor" to the nation of Brazil for the country's rich musical influence on his music! Milton Nascimento sings vocals on most cuts, and if anything, the album resembles Nascimento's work ... CD

Duke Ellington & John Coltrane
Impulse, 1962. Used
A seminal meeting of the old and new generations of jazz – put together in perfect Impulse fashion! At some level, this is actually a Coltrane Quartet album, with Duke sitting in for McCoy Tyner – as that's the lineup on about half of the album, tracks that feature Coltrane, Elvin ... CD

John Coltrane

My Favorite Things
Atlantic, 1961. Used

A 70s soul classics – and the closest that Gil Scott-Heron ever came to having a hit! The album's best known for its anthemic classic "Johannesburg" – one of the first popular tunes to really push the cause of a free South Africa – but the whole album's a winner, filled ... CD
