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.
There's something about Steve Turre in recent years that has us liking him even more and more – a maturity, a rock-solid soulfulness, and a strong commitment to jazz tradition – which, added to his already-inventive work on trombone, really makes him a massive force in jazz – ... CD
With Graham Haynes on cornet and keys, Steve Williamson on saxophones, Laroussi-Ali Djamel on guitar, Brigitte Menon on sitar, Lyra Menon on tanpura, Vincent Othieno and Noel Ekwabi on bass, and Jorde Amorim, Daniel Moreno, Chief Udoh Essiet, and Brice Wassy on percussion. CD
A beautiful record from pianist Evan Lurie – very different than his work in the Lounge Lizards – as the set features bandoneon from Alfred Pedernera, guitar from Marc Ribot, and violin and viola from Jill Jaffee – in a mode that's almost like the hip modern work of Astor ... CD
A great lineup – with Idrees Sulieman on trumpet, Benny Powell on trombone, Billy Harper on tenor, Talib Kibwe on alto, Dewey Redman on tenor, Idris Muhammad on drums, and Big Black on percussion – plus guest work from Pharoah Sanders and Dizzy Gillespie! CD
A crackling bit of hardbop from Sonny Rollins – and a session that has Sonny playing with the Max Roach/Clifford Brown group that included Bud Powell's brother Richie on piano! Sonny had already made a strong name for himself on albums issued under the Roach/Brown tag at the time, and here ... CD
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with ... CD
One of Kenton's greatest records, and the one in which he proves his dedication to Latin styles, by serving up a killer batch of Afro-Cuban tracks with an incredibly authentic feel. The great Johnny Richards handled the arrangements, and the tracks are long and drawn out, with plenty of solo space ... CD
Buddy certainly knew how to keep the customer satisfied – as you'll hear on this hip set of big band grooves, recorded by Buddy for Liberty Records in 1970. The set's got Buddy working with a tight group of younger players, in a mode that's not exactly funky, but which owes a lot to the ... CD
