This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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 nice introduction to one of the hippest big bands of the 70s – a duo who did for the jazz ensemble mode in their decade what Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland did in the 60s! Tracks include "Studio J", "Quadrille, Anyone", "Kogun", "First Night", and ... CD
That's "Take Ten", not "Take Five" – a great title cut that echoes Paul Desmond's previous work with Dave Brubeck – but which then gives way quickly to some sweet bossa-styled grooves done with guitar from Jim Hall! The album's one of the strongest of the ... CD
Tight big band work from Shorty Rogers – cut a few years after his early LA sides for RCA, but in a very similar mode. The tracks are slightly longer than usual, and it's stunning how many players get to solo on each track. Most only get a few bars, but they make more than enough with the ... CD
Ben Webster with Duke Ellington and his Famous Orchestra, Bennie Moten's Kansas City Orchestra, Willie Bryant and his Orchestra, Lionel Hampton and his Orchestra, Rex Stewart and his Orchestra, and Benny Carter and his Chocolate Dandies. CD
Very hip early work from George Russell – a set that's maybe not as high-concept as some of his later records, but which still has a strikingly modern vibe! Russell's trying out some of his new tonal ideas here – and has a group that's very well-chosen for the project – with Art ... CD
Two closely related sessions with Joe Newman and Al Cohn in the front line – plus guitarist Freddie Green, pianist Nat Pierce, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. Tracks include "Up In The Blues", "Free & Easy", "Something's Gotta Give", "Dog ... CD
Nicely bracing work from reedman Larry Ochs – a player you might know from his long legacy in Rova Sax Quartet, but who's often even more striking in a stripped-down setting like this! The album features improvised duets with drummer Don Robinson – and Ochs blows both tenor and ... CD
Rod Mason on cornet, clippertone, valve trombone, clarinet, and vocals – with Pete allen on saxophones and clarinet, Johnny Withers on banjo and guitar, Chris Haskins on bass, and Jimmy Garforth on drums. CD
