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.

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.
Fantastic work from Eddie Palmieri – right up there with his best of the 70s, and filled with the kind of tunes you'd buy one of his best records for! The set was recorded live in Puerto Rico in 1971, and is a mix of the late Latin Soul styles that were heard on the Sing Sing albums, with ... CD
Great early material from Eddie Palmieri – one of his classic records done with Conjunto La Perfecta – a group that's poised on contrapuntal trombone lines, and which had a very important influence on Latin jazz styles in the 60s! The use of trombone makes for lots of dark edges – ... CD
A 70s masterpiece from Eddie Palmieri – a brilliant set of Latin tracks with a modern jazz edge that's really astounding! From the first note of the record, Eddie's piano makes a bold statement of difference – edging into the rest of the group with slight modern touches, and a slightly ... CD
Jazzy goodness from Eddie Palmieri – a recent set that shows him still burning strong after a stunning 50 years in Latin music! The arrangements are spare, but extremely creative – well-penned jazz charts that allow Eddie plenty of modern moments on the keys of the piano, but which ... CD
A relatively recent effort by Eddie, but also one of his best albums in 25 years! The record's a beautiful batch of Latin jazz instrumentals, played with a lot of fire, but also a lot of maturity and creativity. The compositions are great, and Eddie's in top form on piano, with backing by Donald ... CD
A brilliant set of Latin jazz from Poncho Sanchez – proof that he was one of the few musicians who really kept the classic sounds going during the 80s! The album's got a tight small group format that benefits from some especially great horn work from Gene Burkert on alto and tenor, Sal ... CD
Two later Latin jazz sets from Ray Barretto – both of them surprisingly great! Ancestral Song is a bold, proud record that really lives up to its title – a batch of tunes that has Ray leading a strong combo with Ray Vega on trumpet and Jay Rodriguez on tenor and flute – both ... CD
Tight, hard and straight ahead Latin jazz from one of the greats of the 80s! Poncho's work on Concord/Picante is always a treat – and this record's a very nice batch of no-nonsense Latin jazz tracks, played with strong arrangements, and a sweet west coast vibe. Titles include "Co Co My ... CD
A crackling live set from Tito Puente – recorded at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1977, and more of a straight Latin jazz set than most of his other work of the 70s! The performance is really wonderful – classic Tito without any other trappings at all – Puente in the lead on ... CD
