CD

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

One of the last great albums that Hank Mobley ever cut! Although Mobley's 70s output was nothing compared to his 60s Blue Note work, this 1972 session for Cobblestone/Muse is a winner, and features the aging tenorist co-leading a crack quintet with Cedar Walton, and featuring Billy Higgins, Sam Jones, and Charles Davis. The set's freer than Mobley's Blue Note work, but the group's right on the money – and the record is dominated by fierce soulful solos. Walton plays both acoustic and electric piano, at times, the record feels as if it might have been issued on the Black Jazz label. Tracks include "Sabia", "Breakthrough", "Early Morning Stroll", and the beautiful "House On Maple Street".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Signal/Savoy (Japan), 1955. Used
Crucial early work from pianist Duke Jordan – just the sort of set to show what a budding modernist he was at the time! Side one is trio material – a bit straighter bop, almost like some of the Blue Note trio 10" albums – with Percy Heath on bass and Art Blakey on drums! ... CD
Car Tunes
Muse, 1993. Used
Hardly the sort of music you'd hear in the car from most folks on the road – and a beautiful batch of soul jazz numbers from pianist Donald Brown! The album's got a beautiful balance between sharp-edged tunes and warmer ones – a way of stepping back and forth through a solid, soulful ... CD

Muse, 1991. Used
Great work from James Spaulding – one of the few players of his generation who actually got better with age! As he was in his classic 60s Blue Note recording sessions with other leaders, Spaulding is a hell of a group player – extremely sensitive to the other members of his groups ... CD
Jackson's-Ville
Savoy, 1956. Used
One of the good Milt Jackson LPs for Savoy, recorded back when he had some fire in his playing, and when he had some excellent accompaniment, like Kenny Clarke on drums, Hank Jones on piano, and the great Lucky Thompson on tenor, who lays down some great solos here. Cuts include "Now's the ... CD

Muse, 1991. Used
Beautiful tenor work from Buck Hill – an under-acknowledged genius who finally got his chance to reach a larger audience with a handful of Muse Records releases like this one! Hill's a player with a great deal of feeling – a tone that stretches back to Coleman Hawkins in his best later ... CD
Traveler
Muse, 1992. Used
Wallace Roney's hip brother Antoine is a heck of a tenor player – blowing in a post-Coltrane mode that makes him one of the better young talents of the Dewey Redman generation of new traditionalists! Although a 90s set, the record's got a deep sort of energy that almost hearkens back to the ... CD
Munchin'
Muse, 1993. Used
Underground grooving from trumpeter Wallace Roney – one of the excellent albums he recorded for the Muse label in the 90s – a wonderfully well-rounded set that's a tremendous tribute to his tone! The group here is every bit as great as Wallace's work in the frontline – Ravi ... CD
Savoy (Japan), Late 40s. Used

Champ
Muse, 1974. Used
An excellent bop side that finds Stitt and his sidemen still at the top of their game, despite the fact that the date was rather late in many of their careers. While others were exploring electric jazz, Stitt, Joe Newman, Duke Jordan, Sam Jones and Roy Brooks, lay out six sides of crisp hard bop: ... CD
Argo (Japan), 1961. Used
A wonderful later album from pianist Dodo Marmarosa – quite possibly his greatest record ever! The set's an obscure "comeback" date recorded in Chicago for Chess in the early 60s – a trio session with Richard Evans on bass and Marshall Thompson on drums – both working ... CD
Universe/MPS (Italy), 1970. Used Gatefold
One of the key non-Saturn Sun Ra albums of the 70s – and like his records for Blue Thumb and Impulse, a set that really helped awaken the world to his talents! This album may well be one of the most bracing of the bunch – as it features live material recorded by Ra and the Arkestra at ... CD
