Sweetest Sound

CD (Item 921961) MPS (Japan), 1965 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

One of the earliest standout albums on MPS – a killer mid 60s session from pianist/vocalist Elsie Bianchi – working here in a very tight trio mode! Elsie only sings on about half the tracks, but all those are very very nice – done in a style that's got some of the cool touches of the European female mode of the time. But even better are the instrumental numbers, because Bianchi's a sprightly talent on the keys – really leaping around nicely, and working with the bass of Siro Bianchi and drums of Charly Antolini in one of the first great takes on the Saba groove! Titles include a great bossa-esque version of Pete Jolly's "Little Bird", a groovy take on "Fiddler On The Roof", and Elsie's own "Little Blues" – plus the tracks "Meditation", "Why Did I Choose You", "Teach Me Tonight", and "The Shadows Of Paris".  © 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.

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.
