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.
A beautiful tribute to the late, great Abbey Lincoln – served up on a host of solo piano performances by Marc Cary – mostly of tunes penned by Lincoln herself, but also featuring a few originals as well! There's a rich, vibrant feel to the record – a quality that strikes us ... CD
Pedrito Martinez has some heavy help here – an all-star array of guests that includes Wynton Marsalis, Ruben Blades, and Angelique Kidjo – but as before, the real strength of the record comes from the core energy of his group – one that plays in more than enough old school Latin ... CD
Beautiful 60s work from Hampton Hawes – a set from the middle of the decade, a period when he wasn't recorded all that often – but one not issued by Contemporary until his American revival in the 70s! The group's got a wickedly fluid feel – not just Hamp's always-amazing piano, ... CD
An incredible album from the man that changed the way the world hears the Hammond! This album was Larry Young's first for Blue Note – and it's a mindblowing batch of tunes that push the organ into realms that had never been heard of in jazz. Young's got a real penchant for a modal groove ... CD
Recent work by reed player Wendell Harrison – one of the mainstays of the Detroit-based Tribe Records scene of the 70s, holding his own here in a spare set of duets with percussionist Jumma Santos. After the tinnier and R&B oriented sounds of Harrison's 80s work, the album's a nice ... CD
A spiritual jazz classic – one of the rarest albums of its type from the 70s! This legendary session was recorded by Roy Ayers' keyboardist Harry Whitaker – working here as the leader of the Black Renaissance group, a one-shot ensemble that featured Woody Shaw on trumpet, Azar Lawrence ... CD
An album that was years ahead of its time – and which still stands as one of the boldest statements from the New York jazz underground of the 60s! The revolutionary styles of the scene were documented by bigger labels like Impulse and Blue Note – but this obscure indie set goes even ... CD
A classic "new thing" album recorded with the cream of Blue Note's avant 60s players – like Eric Dolphy, Joe Henderson, and Tony Williams – standing out with Hill as some of the most adventurous players for the label at the time! The album's awash with jagged piano likes from ... CD
