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.

Slam Stewart

Bowin' Singin' Slam
Savoy, 1944/1945. Used
One of the few albums issued under the name of bassist Slam Stewart – and a great testament to the genius of the player on his instrument in the days after his work with Slim Gaillard! The style here is much straighter jazz than Slam's work with Slim – and the numbers are mostly in a ... CD

James Moody

Homage
Savoy, 2004. Used
With Jim Rotundi on trumpet, Lou Marini and Lawrence Feldman on flute, David Hazeltine on piano, and others. CD
Savoy (Japan), Late 50s. Used
One of the coolest albums that Curtis Fuller ever recorded for Savoy – a sharp-edged set of modern jazz that really matches the abstract painting on its cover! Fuller's material from this point is always pretty darn great, but this album seems to go ever farther than usual – coming ... CD
Savoy (Japan), Early 50s. Used
Pretty great Charlie Parker material – issued by Savoy a number of years after his death, and obtained from obscure sources, with no data on the players on the sessions. The tracks are all nice and long, with plenty of solo space – and the recording quality is pretty good overall, ... CD

Charles Mingus

Jazz Composers Workshop
Savoy, 1955. Used
A classic session of modernist jazz – and some of Mingus most groundbreaking early work! The album was recorded for Savoy with 2 different groups – one's got Mingus leading John LaPorta on alto, Teo Macero on tenor, and Mal Waldron on piano, and the other group's a quartet with Macero, ... CD
Savoy (Japan), Late 40s. Used
A great 50s album that features material JJ Johnson did for Savoy in the late 40s – singles recorded in 1946, 1947, and 1949 – and they already mark Johnson as one of the most inventive trombonists of his generation – a player working with none of the hoke of earlier eras, and ... CD

Duke Jordan

Trio & Quintet
Savoy, 1955. Used
Duke Jordan never made many albums as a leader back in the 50s – but all of them are great, including this classic set on Savoy! As you'd guess from the title, the record features Jordan in two different settings – trio and quintet – the former of which features Percy Heath on ... CD

Cecil Payne, Phil Woods, & Others

Bird's Night – The Music Of Charlie Parker
Savoy (Japan), 1957. Used
A really well done memorial to the (then) recently-departed Charlie Parker – cut with an unusual lineup that features Cecil Payne on baritone sax, Phil Woods on alto, and Frank Socolow on tenor – all working through long, laidback takes of 4 of Bird's best known compositions! There's a ... CD
Savoy (Japan), 1960. Used
A great lost side from Savoy Jazz – not to be confused with Opus De Jazz Vol 1, the more famous album by Milt Jackson. Like that one, though, this set features a vibist in the lead – John Rae, a strong player who only recorded a few albums, most notably with Herbie Mann. The groove's ... CD
