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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Bandstand (Japan), 1964. Used
Japanese 80s issue of great material recorded by Alan Bates in 1964 – four long tracks, all of which feature Monk's amazing quartet with Charlie Rouse on tenor, Larry Gales on bass, and Ben Riley on drums! CD
Blue Note (France), Early 1950s. Used
A great collection of Thelonious Monk's early pre-LP recordings for Blue Note – seminal not only for the label's commitment to a modernist bop ideal, but also for Monk's integration in the growing collection of top-level jazz players on the New York scene! The work is notable also for the ... CD
Black Lion (Germany), 1971. Used
Very late work from the legendary Thelonious Monk – but surprisingly great as well! The session was recorded in London – as you might guess from the title – and although Monk's not working with his regular quartet with Charlie Rouse, he does interact wonderfully with a trio that ... CD

Thelonious Monk

Monk's Music
Riverside (Japan), 1957. Used
A landmark in jazz – easily one of Thelonious Monk's greatest albums ever, and a magical crossroads of talents that brings together a variety of jazz traditions! The work is performed by an ambitious Monk septet that includes both Coleman Hawkins and John Coltrane on tenor – and if you' ... CD

Thelonious Monk

Monk. (plus bonus tracks)
Columbia, 1964. Used
Beautiful Columbia work from Thelonious Monk – a record that has as much warmth and charm as it does visionary modernist moments! A number of the tunes are standards, not Monk compositions – and they're done here with a sense of depth and joy of exploration that's really wonderful ... CD

Thelonious Monk

It's Monk Time
Columbia (France), 1967. Used
One of our favorite Thelonious Monk albums ever – a bare bones, no nonsense session that's filled with great work from tenorist Charlie Rouse! The record's filled with everything that's great about the Monk/Rouse team in these years – an incredible interplay between sax and piano, ... CD
Columbia, 1964. Used 2 CDs
A great collection of prime Columbia-era Monk – captured here in a live setting with Charlie Rouse, Larry Gales, and Ben Riley. This two disc set features loads of previously unreleased material and offers a great snapshot on this important group. Tracks include "Don't Blame Me", ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, Mid 60s. Used 2 CDs
The complete Columbia solo piano recordings – 37 tracks total, including 14 previously unreleased takes! CD
Columbia, 1968. Used
One of the most gimmicky cover images ever used to sell the music of Thelonious Monk (and Monk himself hated the image) – but a key classic from his legendary years at Columbia Records! The album's got an edge that definitely lives up to its title – even if the cover photo is a bad ... CD
Thelonious/Hyena, 1960s. Used CD & DVD
Thelonious Monk on piano, with Charlie Rouse on tenor saxophone, Butch Warren, John Ore, and Larry Gales on bass, and Ben Riley and Frank Dunlop on drums. CD

Arnett Cobb with Eddie Lockjaw Davis

Blow Arnett Blow
Prestige/OJC, 1959. Used
Blow Arnett does, at that – a killer tenor groove that's augmented here by some additional work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis! The pair really let loose on some of the tunes here – blowing in that older "battle" mode at points, but also laying back at times too – hitting a ... CD

Kenny Burrell, Al Cohn, Art Farmer, et al

Earthy
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used
A well-named LP, as this hard-grooving blowing session is one of Kenny Burrell's earthiest performances – a no-nonsense, stripped-down batch of hardbop tunes that really lets him let loose! The format here is in the best late 50s Prestige blowing session mode – with rhythm from the ... CD
