✈
A massive amount of greatness – the first run of albums by John Coltrane as a leader, recorded for Prestige Records in 1957 and 1958, and packaged here with a huge booklet of notes as well! The 6CD collection features a massive 48 tracks in all – the long, open-ended grooves that Coltrane recorded for Prestige – really stepping into the spotlight as a leader on his own, and working with players who include Red Garland on piano, Donald Byrd and Freddie Hubbard on trumpets, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. The set features exquisite packaging – very unique – plus a beautiful 64 page book that includes album artwork, new liner notes, and a full discography and sessionography too!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print, back cover has a lightly bumped corner.)

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.

Africa/Brass
Impulse, 1961. Used
Quite a different album than usual for John Coltrane, but a classic one too – and a set that has the great one exploring his ideas in a set of longer tracks recorded with an expanded jazz orchestra! The format's hardly the mainstream big band of the time – as Coltrane's filled the ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1955. Used

Prestige, 1973. Used
Great late work by Jug and Sonny – recorded as one of those excellent concerts thrown by Baltimore's famous Left Bank Jazz Society. The format is simple – with both soloists up front, and a crack rhythm section that includes Cedar Walton, Sam Jones, and Billy Higgins – and the ... CD
