✈

Great session of deeply soulful tenor work, featuring Rouse in a group with Blue Mitchell, Walter Bishop, Earl May, and Art Taylor. At this point in his career, Rouse is in his pre-Monk days – but beginning to experiment heavily with a more modernist approach to hardbop. The results are great – especially on tracks like "Blue Farouq", "Wierdo", "204", and "Pretty Strange" (the latter two of which are originals by Randy Weston, making a first appearance on this session.)  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

The great altoist Sonny Criss is one of our favorite-ever reed players, and this beautiful session from his late 60's "comeback" period is a loving portrait of the wide range of his deep deep talents! On the surface, the record is deceptively simple, and only features Criss' work on alto ... CD

Phineas Newborn

World Of Piano
Contemporary/OJC, 1961. Used
Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The ... CD

Lush Life
Prestige/OJC, 1957/1958. Used
A beautiful little album from the young John Coltrane, and one that hides its strong sense of depth behind a familiar jazz standard used as a title! In some way, the record is almost experimental for the time – as side one features the tenor of Coltrane alongside just the bass of Earl May ... CD

John Coltrane

Stardust
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used

Joe Henderson

Tetragon
Milestone/OJC, 1967. Used
An excellent set that really shows Joe Henderson perched on the edge – hanging between his Blue Note hardbop work of the 60s, and his freer work of the early 70s! The lineup's a great one – with Kenny Barron on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and either Louis Hayes or Jack DeJohnette on ... CD
