Life Emission Display – A Nujazz Funkelectro Brazilian Journey

CD (Item 971121) Funky Juice (Italy), 2006 — Condition: Used
$2.99 ...

CD

Sweet grooves from the Funky Juice team – a set that definitely lives up to its promise of nujazz and Brazilian in the title! The tunes here are a bit more programmed than some LED's Italian contemporaries – but the sound is still warm and soulful, thanks to just the right balance of electric rhythms and live instrumentation on keyboards, sax, and guitar. Some of the best numbers have breezy female vocals, but some cuts are instrumentals too – and if we had to pick a reference, we might say that the album's right up there with some of the work on the Sister Bossa series from Irma! Titles include "You Turn", "Bossa De Saudade", "Taormina Chase", "A Clave", "Triste Alegre", "Central Funk Park", "Inside", "Rolling Box", and "Frisco Party".  © 1996-2021, 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.

A warm and wonderful sampling of grooves from one of the hippest Japanese labels growing – the ever-soulful Flower Records, home to some of our best-selling artists on that high-priced Japanese wax! The approach here is to take mellower cuts by some artists that you might know more for their ... CD

Flower (Japan), 2005. Used
The jazziest mix in the World Standard series to date – a set that really shows Sunaga T's growing presence in the club jazz world, but still done with plenty of the clubby touches of previous volumes too! The general vibe here mixes acoustic jazz with bits of house at the bottom – ... CD
G Stone (Austria), 2002. Used
Everything you've ever come to expect from Tosca – heavy beats, tuneful flourishes, and a downtempo groove that never breaks its cool – despite the presence of a rich array of other remix talents here. The posturing gets a bit stiff for us at times – and makes us long for the ... CD

Chrysalis, 1994. Used
Part of a generation of US Acid Jazzers we could never really get behind at the time, this set fares a little better in retrospect. The playing has a crispness about it that we felt lacked edge back then, but betrays a debt to some of our favorite 70s jazz funk on second listen. Includes "Jaz ... CD

Bebel Gilberto
Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees, 2004. Used
Bebel's second album for Six Degrees – and quite possibly an even better album than the first! Not one to rest on the laurels of her success of recent years, Bebel seems to diverge a bit from the sound of her initial hit – going for a deeper approach to songwriting, and a musical style ... CD
