Additional Marks & Notes

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.

RCA (Japan), 1963. Used
That's "Take Ten", not "Take Five" – a great title cut that echoes Paul Desmond's previous work with Dave Brubeck – but which then gives way quickly to some sweet bossa-styled grooves done with guitar from Jim Hall! The album's one of the strongest of the ... CD
Red Baron, 1971. Used
A rare pairing, and a great one too – as Paul Desmond joins the Modern Jazz Quartet for a unique live set from the early 70s – with a great sound that's even more wonderful than we expected! Desmond is always great no matter what the setting – but he sounds especially nice ... CD

Paul Desmond

Skylark
CTI, 1974. Used
A stunning 70s set from the great Paul Desmond – one that has the tremendous alto player finding an even fresher groove than before – yet all without losing any of the class and control that made him so great in the 50s and 60s! Don Sebesky arranged the set, but most of the ... CD

Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big Band

Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big Band
RCA/Novus, Mid 70s. Used
A nice introduction to one of the hippest big bands of the 70s – a duo who did for the jazz ensemble mode in their decade what Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland did in the 60s! Tracks include "Studio J", "Quadrille, Anyone", "Kogun", "First Night", and ... CD

Shorty Rogers

Portrait Of Shorty
RCA, 1958. Used
Tight big band work from Shorty Rogers – cut a few years after his early LA sides for RCA, but in a very similar mode. The tracks are slightly longer than usual, and it's stunning how many players get to solo on each track. Most only get a few bars, but they make more than enough with the ... CD

Ben Webster

Cotton Tail
BMG/RCA, 1930s/1940s. Used
Ben Webster with Duke Ellington and his Famous Orchestra, Bennie Moten's Kansas City Orchestra, Willie Bryant and his Orchestra, Lionel Hampton and his Orchestra, Rex Stewart and his Orchestra, and Benny Carter and his Chocolate Dandies. CD

George Russell

Jazz Workshop
RCA/Koch, 1956. Used
Very hip early work from George Russell – a set that's maybe not as high-concept as some of his later records, but which still has a strikingly modern vibe! Russell's trying out some of his new tonal ideas here – and has a group that's very well-chosen for the project – with Art ... CD

Buddy Rich

Time Being
RCA, 1987. Used
Tracks include "Paul's Tune", "Little Train", "Best Coast", "Space Shuttle", "Sassy Strut", and "Dancing Men". CD

Al Cohn, Joe Newman, & Freddie Green

Natural Rhythm
RCA/Bluebird, 1955. Used
Two closely related sessions with Joe Newman and Al Cohn in the front line – plus guitarist Freddie Green, pianist Nat Pierce, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. Tracks include "Up In The Blues", "Free & Easy", "Something's Gotta Give", "Dog ... CD

Dizzy Gillespie & His Orchestra

Dizzier & Dizzier
RCA, Late 40s. Used
A really great collection of Dizzy Gillespie 78rpm material for RCA! CD
RCA, 1930s/1940s. Used
20 songs from Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Lionel Hampton, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey, Cab Calloway, Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Fletcher Henderson, Charlie Barnet, and Erskine Hawkins. CD
