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.
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.
An unusual appearance on a major label for Cecil Taylor – recorded during a brief bit of optimism in A&M's jazz department! Despite the setting, though, the record's a great one – played with all the fire and dynamism of some of Taylor's indie work from the same stretch – and ... CD
One of Cecil Taylor's most spiritual sessions of the 70s – a live set recorded in Yugoslavia in 1976, and done with this really open sound, but one that comes as much from the horns as it does from Cecil's piano! In fact, we might well say that the horns are the best attraction here – ... CD
One of a rare few albums done by pianist Cecil Taylor for the Blue Note label in the 60s – some of the most outside work recorded for the imprint at the time! The word "structures" here is perhaps a bit misplaced – as the work has a strong sense of freedom with the soloists ... CD
Solo piano from Andrew Hill – done in that long-flowing mature style that he pulled out in later years – an approach that could be as warm as it was constantly creative! Titles include "Retrospect", "Afternoon In Paris", "Verona Rag", "Darn That ... CD
Modernist clarinet at its best – handled deftly by Peter Kuhn, in a range of modes that moves between hard-swinging jazz and much more spacious, sonic textures! Kuhn plays both standard and bass clarinet – using the latter with an especially great sound that reminds us of some of the ... CD
Jimmy Knepper keeps things sharp here in later years – blowing trombone in a group with John Eckert on trumpet, John Clark on French horn, Roland Hanna on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. CD
Wonderful stuff! Jean Francois Boillat plays Fender Rhodes, Raymond Therace plays tenor sax and flute – and the pair groove mightily together on this set of recordings from the 70s! The tracks have a style that mixes soul bop with jazz funk – easily grooving in a CTI-ish mode, with ... CD
Small group material recorded at the Hi Hat in Boston and the Celebrity Club in nearby Providence, RI. Tracks are pulled from three different dates and feature work by Sonny Truitt on trombone, Nat Pierce on piano, Joe Shulman and George Jones on bass, and Jack McDonald on drums. CD
A trio date with Don Bennett on piano, Aleksandar Milosevic on bass, and Doug Sides on drums. Tracks include "Quarter Moon", "Delilah", "On Green Dolphin Street", "My Romance", "Spanish Blue", and "Simplexity". CD
Perhaps THE greatest Quincy Jones album of the 60s – a hard-swinging batch of big band bossa tunes – and one of the greatest American takes on the bossa sound ever! Quincy really brings a lot of soul to the set – syncopating the bottom end of the tunes to really bring out the ... CD
Incredible stuff – and a record that grows more and more important to us over the years! Desmond's best known as the icy alto behind Dave Brubeck's big records of the 50s, but by this point in his career, he'd developed a keen interest in Brazilian music – and was working at a level ... CD
