Fly Ensemble

CD (Item 971631) GAD (Poland), Early 80s — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

Sweet fusion sounds from early 80s Poland – some really wonderful music cut under the leadership of guitarist Wieslaw Wilczkiewicz, who works here with to larger ensembles that are awash in reed lines, keyboards, and a bit of strings! The expanded format almost makes the music feel like soundtrack jazz at points – or at least that late 70s variety that was showing up in the US, as blacksploitation funk gave way to jazzy fusion – and like the best of that work, Wieslaw creates these cool tunes that are full of color, and very visual – never going too far over the top with any sort of rock-jamming fusion approach, and instead balancing the guitar lines in a nice way with the larger tonal backdrops. Titles include "Brass Key", "Ruda Magda", "In Blue Eyes", "Number Two Woman", "Pawelek", and "Varadero" – and a nice cover of "Hi Fly".  © 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.
