Twin guitar jazz from Herb Ellis and Freddie Green – the former on lead electric, the latter on acoustic rhythm – playing together here in a nicely sprightly session from the 70s! The approach is lean, and really makes the best of both players – and next to Green's acoustic, Ellis has this more biting sound than we remember – really sharp, soulful, and creative – given some nice rhythmic support from a trio that features Ray Brown on bass, Jake Hanna on drums, and Ross Tompkins on piano. The original cover image of the record is oddly quite offensive, but fortunately everything else is well-done – and titles include "Rhythm Willie", "A Smooth One", "Orange Brown & Green", and "Conversations". © 1996-2020, 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.
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.
