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.
Some folks only know Archie Shepp as a hard-blowing avant player, but we're always more than happy to give him his due as a soulful interpreter of ballads – as you'll hear on a record like this, a real gem from his later years! The tunes are all familiar standards, but done the Shepp way, ... CD
Beautiful sounds from pianist Denny Zeitlin – one of those players who often gets overlooked, but who's made some incredibly expressive music over the years! The album's got a sparkle that really takes us back to Denny's 60s sides for Columbia, but it's also got a slightly more mature ... CD
A beautifully-balanced trio – the perfect piano of Steve Kuhn, warm basslines of Buster Williams, and soulful swing of Billy Drummond's drums – all wrapped up wonderfully in a set that's a great illustration of the Venus Records genius for turning out a session like this! Kuhn's all ... CD
If that's the dead princess on the cover, we sure hope they put some clothes on her before the funeral! Jokes about the cover aside, though, the album's a sublime outing from pianist Steve Kuhn – a very unusual showcase for his talents, in that it features mostly tunes pulled from classical ... CD
Great Shepp with a great group – a quartet that pairs Archie's amazing tenor with the piano of John Hicks! The album's one of the best of Archie Shepp's later ballad albums – and has a really standout feel, thanks to Hicks' warmer tones on the piano alongside Shepp's raspier notes. ... CD
A wonderfully majestic album by Pharoah Sanders – sort of a follow up to his Welcome To Love album of ballads and standards, but handled with a bit more of the expansive soul of some of his other recordings. Like that previous album, this one has Pharoah playing tenor in a quartet with ... CD
A great straight set from the later years of Lee Konitz – one that has the altoist swinging wonderfully in the company of pianist Kenny Barron! There's a soulful undercurrent to the record that really shows Barron's hand in the sound of the session – that mature groove that Kenny ... CD
That's Dr Lonnie Smith, to you – grooving greatly here on one of those sweet mid 90s sessions that really returned his organ talents to the jazz-buying public! The group on the date is co-led with guitarist John Abercrombie – a player whose work has graced soul jazz sets over the years ... CD
The deepest work to date from Vibration Black Finger – a group headed up by UK drummer Lascelle Gordon, and who effortlessly mix together acoustic jazz elements and other sonic elements – very much in the best spirit of some of their contemporaries on the London scene! Gordon's drums ... CD
