Incredible grooves from the Scandinavian jazz scene of the 60s – all hand-picked by Ricky Tick records, the folks who are helping to re-ignite the scene in the 21st Century! The tracks here clearly show a link between northern jazz of years past and the current club jazz rhythms of Five Corners Quintet, Jukka Eskola, and others – a love of snapping rhythms, soaring solos, and jazz that's always got a modern edge, but a really straightforwardly grooving appeal! All tracks here are upbeat and lively, and are pulled from a host of rare 60s albums – many of which have never been reissued. Titles include "Pia" by Staffan Ableen, "Big P" by Kjell Karlsen, "Di Da" by Sahib Shihab, "Mr Peter" by Esa Pethman, "Haka Blues" by Otto Donner Element All Stars, "Piger" by Brew Moore, "Cordon Bleu" by Erik Andresen, "The Runner" by Lars Lystedt, "Helsinki At Noon" by Christian Schwindt, and "Buddah" by Jazz Quintet 60. © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.
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.
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. 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.
With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
