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.
Sublime vocals from Clarice Assad – a singer who's got some ties to older Brazilian traditions, but who also really makes things all her own – with a dynamic sense of phrasing that's perfectly backed up by some equally great instrumentation! Clarice handled all the arrangments – ... CD
Contemporary takes on older styles from the northeast of Brazil – particularly the older forro modes of the generation of Luiz Gonzaga Sr, plus some other styles as well – all served up with a warmly jazzy finish! The project's headed by pianist Jovino Santos Neto, who also plays some ... CD
Wicked early work from Azymuth – one of the albums that the group recorded when they were really starting to take off on the global scene – burning strong with a soulful fusion vibe, lots of Brazilian rhythm currents, and always hitting all the right notes in their music! The sound ... CD
A tremendous little record from Philippe Baden Powell – son of the great Brazilian guitarist, and a musician who's set to impress us as much as his father! Philippe's working here in a mode that's no copycat of his famous father at all – on piano, first of all, and with a style that's ... CD
Really lovely sounds from the father/daughter team of Clarice and Sergio Assad – a pair who would already be great as a musical duo, even without a family connection! Sergio plays acoustic guitar throughout – with a fullness of sound, but also the lighter, lyrical sensibility that ... CD
Really lovely work from Hamilton De Hollanda – the third entry in his Brasilianos series, and possibly the most compelling so far! Hamilton plays a 10 string mandolin with effortless ease – spinning out rich tones and colors that go far beyond traditional Brazilian use of a bandolim ... CD
A beautifully acoustic session that pays tribute to older choro styles in Brazil – and one that features the talents of Benjamin Taubkin on piano, Naylor Proventa on sax and clarinet, Isaias De Almeida on mandolin, Israel De Almeida on 7 string guitar, and Guello on percussion. The set's got ... CD
Amazing stuff! Jorge Ben never made a bad record in the 60s – and this is one of his best! The album's filled with tight jaunty numbers that mix big band samba arrangements with quickly strummed guitar, and Jorge's wonderfully raw vocals – all classic stuff for Jorge, but a style that ... CD
Well, we don't know if this actually contains a full 100 years' worth of music, but it is a very nice 4-CD set that serves as a good introduction to the music of Brazil. Put together by the same folks who did the Cuba box set, this set has a similar style that assigns a specific genre to each CD ... CD
A session that warmly tracks the continuous friendship of pianist Andre Mehmari and mandolin player Hamilton De Holanda – both players who come together here with a strong sense of sound – a mixture of jazz, Brazilian, and solo acoustic modes that sit together nicely in the set! There's ... CD
