Introduction To Gabriel Tajeu

CD (Item 923650) Legere (France), 2017 — Condition: Used
$5.99 ...

CD

A great introduction to the voice of Gabriel Tajeu – a singer who has this way of grabbing us right from the very first note, with a vibe that's classic enough to have made him huge way back in the 70s! Gabriel's music has a sound that's as sunny as the image on the cover – a style that reflects both his roots in Alabama, and his handling here by an overseas funk label – a mixing of modes that's maybe even greater than the sum of its parts, and served up at a level that's mighty fresh! Tajeu sings in a way that slides right into the lyric beautifully, and the backings are often light, but with a slight sense of groove – slightly jazzy around the edges to warm things up and maybe point just slightly towards 70s AOR territory. Titles include "Down To The Wire", "Raindrops", "Weight Of The World", "Someone To Love", "Sunday's Best", "The Beat Goes On", and "All I Want Is You". CD also features five bonus acoustic versions of songs on the album.  © 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.

Big Boss Man

Last Man On Earth
Blow Up (UK), 2014. Used
Maybe the coolest record we've ever heard from this mod British combo – a set that gets way past the easy retro references of previous albums, and goes for a vibe that's quite complicated, but still pretty darn groovy! The set's got the look and feel of the best jazzy soundtracks of the 60s ... CD

Shawn Lee & Clutchy Hopkins

Fascinating Fingers
Ubiquity, 2009. Used
Textural mood funk from the team of Shawn Lee and Clutchy Hopkins – the second collaborative batch from this dynamic and well matched duo! We loved Clutch Of The Tiger, but they take a profound step forward on Fascinating Fingers – if they were feeling each others styles out on that ... CD

Rare Groove Spectrum
Freestyle (UK), 2018. Used
Lance Ferguson has given us plenty of great work over the years – from his work in The Bamboos, to all his many other projects – yet as much as we've liked all of those, this one might actually be one of his best – a fantastic reworking of rare groove tracks from the 70s, all with ... CD

This Love
Big Crown, 2019. Used
A really fantastic full length set from Bobby Oroza – a moody take on blue-eyed soul, with a vibe that's completely its own! Oroza has some fantastic help here – production and music by Cold Diamond & Mink, the combo who've given such a fantastic sound to Timmion Records soul ... CD

Erik Truffaz

Revisite
Blue Note, 2001. Used
The spacey work of Swiss trumpeter Erik Truffaz gets the remix treatment, in a great set of chillout grooves! Truffaz has a great sound – kind of a blend of late 60s Miles Davis, and mid 70s Eddie Henderson – and his first few albums for Blue Note France have been some of our favorite ... CD

Soulive

Doin' Something
Blue Note, 2001. Used
Great stuff from one of the funkiest combos around! Soulive are part of the second wave of US jam-band funk acts – the sort of groovy groups that have been springing up in the wake of Medeski, Martin, & Wood's success over the past 10 years – and the combo's got a tight no-nonsense ... CD
Afrasia, 2009. Used
Incredible work from Carmen Lundy – an album that's got us falling in love with her music all over again – but from a completely different perspective! As you might guess from the "demo" in the title, the album's got Lundy working in a very intimate setting – handling ... CD

XII
Soulasis, 2014. Used
A hell of a record from keyboardist and producer Brandon Williams – an artist who may well be the Larry Mizell of the 21st Century! Like Mizell, Brandon's a hell of a musician at the core – really strong and soulful on his work here – but also like Larry, Williams really has a ... CD

Hidden Beach, 2007. Used 2 CDs
Jill Scott's a singer with a mighty generous spirit – and in addition to her own (all too few) recordings over the years, she's made some tremendous appearances on records under the leadership of other artists – a good deal of which are included in this set! Jill's not the kind of ... CD
