A massive treat from the Chicago scene – a dozen jazzy classics, put together with a feel for the kind of cut that's always played big on the Chi-town steppers scene! Lots of other stepping jazz CDs feature mostly newer tracks, but this one's great in that it includes a bunch of late 60s soul jazz tunes – some killer tracks from the Chess/Cadet scene, mixed with other smoother grooves from the 70s. Titles include "The Look Of Love" and "Who Dun It" by Monk Higgins, "Soul Vibration" by Dorothy Ashby, "The Stepper" by Soulful Strings, "Count Down" by Dave Baby Cortez, "Midnight Plane" and "Windy City" by Rodney Franklin, "The Love You Give To Me" by Webster Lewis, "I Feel Like Loving You Today" by Donald Byrd & 125th Street NYC, "Think About It" by Odell Brown, "Love's Victory" by Ronnie Laws, and "Hole In The Wall" by The Packers. (Note: Some of the titles here were mastered from vinyl sources – but we've been assured that the collection is legit.)  © 1996-2015, 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. 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.
