Toby Fichelscher — Busting The Bongos ... CD 5.99
Wonderful lost work from Toby Fichelscher – a German bongo player with a hell of a great ear for an unusual groove – strongly demonstrated here in a set of previously-unreleased recordings! Toby draws plenty from American percussionists of the 50s – and works here in a modern jazz setting that uses his percussion to bring sharp sounds to a lineup that includes vibes, alto sax, guitar, and tenor – often used in these cool, chromatic ways that work wonderfully alongside the rhythms! Fichelscher also sings and scats a bit at a few points – mixing vocals with his percussion in a way that reminds us of Fats Sadi, a European contemporary who had a similarly great ear for mixing modes. Most tracks here are instrumental, but even those have as much charm as the vocal numbers – and titles include "The Cool Scene", "My First Blues", "Fashion Trip", "Shadows", "With Cash Like This", and "On Chano's Track".  © 1996-2022, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Motown/Mo Jazz, 1974. Used
Pure dark magic from Grover Washington – a record that was a megahit back in the 70s, but which still sounds amazing many decades later! There's a sound here that's completely sublime – and the album is to Grover's career what the first 2 CTI sets by Bob James were to his – a ... CD

Booker 'N Brass
Pacific Jazz, 1967. Used
Although the "with brass" tag of this one might make you think it's a hokey big band album, the record is actually a far-reaching modernist session that has Book's edgey tenor fronting a large-ish group filled with some of the best trumpet and trombone players of his generation – ... CD
