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.
Steve Turre's one of those players we always look out – especially as a leader, because albums like this are always some of our favorites! And although years back, we might have thought of Turre as a player with a gimmick, we've really come to appreciate his subtle sense of soul – and ... CD
There's something about Steve Turre in recent years that has us liking him even more and more – a maturity, a rock-solid soulfulness, and a strong commitment to jazz tradition – which, added to his already-inventive work on trombone, really makes him a massive force in jazz – ... CD
One of the most soulful sets so far from Steve Turre – a record with a really great sense of groove, thanks to a tight rhythm section that includes Mulgrew Miller on piano, Peter Washington on bass, and Ignacio Berroa on drums! There's a warmth and depth here that's totally great – a ... CD
Roland Hanna's certainly easy to love here – working in a free-flowing trio mode, with a fair bit more soul jazz touches than on some of his later work! Rhythm here is from Ben Tucker on bass and Roy Barnes on drums – both of whom bring in a gentle little groove that augments the more ... CD
A jazz treasure chest – an extraordinary bounty of Bird on Verve! You get absolutely everything here, master takes, alternate takes, loads of previously unissued material, rehearsals, incomplete takes, you get it all! Sidemen include Benny Carter, Kenny Clarke, Miles Davis, Roy Eldridge, ... CD
A beautiful tribute to the genius of Roland Kirk – one that comes across with all the warmth and soulfulness of Kirk's classic recordings! 8 of the 9 tracks on the set are original compositions by Kirk – played by Turre in a style that recalls the brilliantly inventive and creatively ... CD
Beautifully sensitive work from pianist Geri Allen – a session cut with a core trio of Ron Carter on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums, but one that sparkles even more from guest contributions by Wallace Roney and Carmen Lundy! Geri's piano is at the forefront of the set – sliding out ... CD
Early soul jazz brilliance from a young Gary Bartz – music that pre-dates his Ntu Troup, and his work with Larry Mizell! Libra is fantastic early work from Gary – and probably his rarest record ever! The album was cut at a time when the young Bartz was first coming to prominence in ... CD
