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.

Tenorist Gregory Tardy comes on here with a surprising degree of complexity – a range of expressions on his instrument that run from straightforward, to sharply angular, to dark-toned and sonorous – all in the space of a single session! The sense of individual spirit is stronger than ... CD
A great early album by Hilton Ruiz – recorded at a time when he was coming off of work with Roland Kirk, with all the soulfulness that you'd expect him to pick up from such a setting. The album features a mixture of trio and quintet tracks, the latter of which are the best, as they feature ... CD
A later cooker from this former Jazz Messengers trumpeter – with a group that also features Junior Cook on tenor, Robin Eubanks on trombone, and Mickey Tucker on piano! Titles include "Fuller Up", "Yo What's Up", "PB", and "Whisper Not". CD
A timelessly soulful session by drummer Louis Hayes – one with a feel that sums up much of the 70s underground soul jazz scene, but which also has roots that stretch back to Hayes' time with Horace Silver in the 60s! The ensemble's a sextet, playing with Silver-esque overtones – and ... CD
An excellent set of some fairly out material – performed by Shorter with a group that includes Freddie Hubbard, Grachan Moncur, James Spaulding, Herbie Hancock, and a rare appearance by his brother Alan on flugelhorn! At times, the record builds into a sound that's freer and more ... CD
