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.

Arnett Cobb

Party Time
Prestige/OJC, 1959. Used
A mighty big party from tenor giant Arnett Cobb – a player who always blew strongly in other settings, but really hit his height on these albums for Prestige! The record is a perfect mix of Cobb's bluesy roots and a more sophisticated modern jazz setting – with support from a crack ... CD

Teddy Charles

Evolution
Prestige/OJC, 1953/1955. Used
A full 12" LP that combines two earlier sessions by Teddy Charles – some of his best early 50s modernist work, proof that he was one of the standout talents of the postwar years on vibes! The first session features two long tracks – "Evolution" and "Free" ... CD

Gil Melle

Quadrama
Prestige (Japan), Mid 50s. Used
Sublime work from one of the true originals of 50s jazz! Gil Melle was a baritonist – but with a sound and approach that was completely unique – very different than bigger names on the instrument, like Jimmy Giuffre or Pepper Adams. He had an icy touch that was surprising for the ... CD

Miles Davis

Blue Haze
Prestige/OJC, 1954. Used
An early full-length album issued under Miles Davis' name – one that brings together some earlier 10" and single recordings for Prestige! The feel here is quite similar to Davis' work of the time for Blue Note – done with tracks that are short and tight, and very boppish – ... CD

Duke Pearson

Dedication!
Prestige/OJC, 1961. Used
A rare pre-Blue Note gem from pianist Duke Pearson – originally recorded in 1961 for the short-lived Jazzline label! The set appears here in a short-lived 1969 incarnation from Prestige – issued, no doubt, to cash in on Pearson's growing fame at Blue Note – and the record's a ... CD
Prestige, 1958. Used
A record that's virtually the blueprint for the sound of Hammond organ and tenor sax in soul jazz– the first of Eddie Lockjaw Davis' great run of cookbook albums for Prestige! The record features Lockjaw's gutsy tenor in a group alongside Jerome Richardson's lighter flute – both ... CD

Kenny Dorham

Quiet Kenny
Prestige/OJC, 1959. Used
Kenny may be quiet, but he's never muted – and the record is far from the sleepy session you might guess from the title! The album's a real standout in the Dorham catalog – a set that let's Kenny's trumpet sparkle beautifully in a quartet that includes piano from Tommy Flanagan, bass ... CD

Arnett Cobb

Movin Right Along
Prestige, 1960. Used
Probably the best of Arnett's albums for Prestige – thanks to an incredible set of players that includes Bobby Timmons, Sam Jones, and Art Taylor. With a group like that it's hard to miss – and believe us, Arnett doesn't! Timmons' firey piano is a nice change from some of the more ... CD

Lem Winchester

Lem's Beat
Prestige/OJC, 1960. Used
Detroit vibist Lem Winchester cut too few albums in his brief career before his untimely death in the early 60s – but all of them are plenty darn great, and rank right up there with the best work of the period by Johnny Lytle or Freddie McCoy! Although not as all-out funky as fellow ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1954/1956. Used
A strange mix of material – but some great work overall! Most of the record features Miles Davis recording with a quintet that includes Thelonious Monk on piano, Milt Jackson on vibes, Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – on longer versions of "The Man I Love" (in ... CD
