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. 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.
The complete recordings of pianist Hank Jones with the Tyree Glenn group! The sessions are mostly lightly swinging affairs, but there are a fair number of lovely ballads, too – all recorded for Roulette Records in that sweet mix of swing and bop they were using in the late 50s. Jones nimbly ... CD
Wonderfully sweet work from trumpeter Charlie Shavers – 2 albums' worth of material that feature Charlie blowing on ballads, in a style that's really our favorite side of his work! Charlie's horn drifts magically over string-heavy backings from Syl Oliver – in a mode that's warm and ... CD
A live set recorded in 1965 – and more straight ahead soul jazz than Lou's later funk work on Blue Note, even though Leo Morris/Idris Muhammad is on drums. The album is a nice transitional session, though, with a good lounge jazz feel, and some nice long cuts like "Fried Buzzard", ... CD
Great early work from Quincy Jones – 2 ABC big band sessions, back to back on one CD! First up is This Is How I Feel About Jazz – a set that has Jones working in some of his hippest settings of the 50s – scoring longish versions of jazz tunes for groups that include players like ... CD
The complete 1956 Chet Baker performance at the Conservatorio Cherubini in Italy – augmented by a great set of notes and some excellent bonus work from the same time! The core part of the set features a rare Baker performance from his mid 50s European tour – one that features Chet on ... CD
2 rare large group sets – back to back on one CD! First up is Saxes Inc – a unique sax-heavy session done by Warner Brothers, and a blaring batch of tracks played by an all-star all-sax group that includes Herb Geller, Phil Woods, Gene Quill, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Seldon Powell, Hal ... CD
2 classic sides from the team of Lou Donaldson & John Patton – back to back on one CD! Possum Head is a real smoker from Lou Donaldson's years at Cadet – and an organ-driven session with Big John Patton on the Hammond! The record's got a slightly lighter groove than the ... CD
Some rare non-Ellington material from Billy Strayhorn and Johnny Hodges – both sessions recorded as part of a series done by producer Stanley Dance at the end of the 50s! The feel here is a almost a bit more open and less restrained than the usual Ellington groove – with some standout ... CD
2 killers from Illinois Jacquet – back to back on one CD! The Message is a really hard groover from Jacquet's later years on Chess – a solidly smoking session that features plenty of organ and guitar! There's a gutbuckety groove here that's a lot like some of Willis Jackson's best ... CD
