❔

Seminal sounds from the Parisian jazz community of the early 70s – a scene that had as much late 60s revolutionary energy as the American one – and which steps forth here in a beautiful blend of righteous themes and really far-reaching styles! The politics of the set are obvious from the cover and title – but there's also a deeply spiritual feel, too – that same sense of searching in the post-Coltrane generation of the US, but played out in a host of very different ways that make the music a great new discovery! American musicians interacted heavily with French jazz players in the post-1968 scene – and you can definitely hear that influence at work, mixed with other creative European modes that really give the music a special cross-cultural feel. Some key elements of the post-colonial scene are at play as well – and titles include "De L'Orient A L'Orion" by RK Nagati, "Attention L'Armee" by Atarpop 73 & Le Collectif Le Temps Des Cerises, "Samba Miaou" by Full Moon Ensemble, "Le Cri" by Michel Roques, "Hey" by Chene Noir, "Athee Ou A Te" by Beatrice Arnac, "Nous Ouvrirons Les Casernes" by Mahjun, "Je Suis Un Sauvage" by Alfred Panou & Art Ensemble Of Chicago, and "Les Elephants" by Frederic Rufin & Raphael Lecomte.  © 1996-2020, 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.
