This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.

Dexter Gordon at his late 60s best – really opening up in the friendly confines of the Cafe Montmartre in Copenhagen – home to some of his greatest recordings of the time! The tunes are all quite long – the shortest almost 11 minutes, the longest almost 18 – and Gordon ... CD
Trumpeter Pete Rodriguez is the son of the legendary salsa singer Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez – but the vibe here is straight jazz, and with a nice current of darkness too! The bold tones from Pete's horn are echoed by the piano of the album's co-producer, Luis Perdomo – and ... CD
A beautiful little record that's a bit hard to peg – one that features guitars and vocals from both Jesse Harris and Vinicius Cantuaria, in modes that move between jazz, Brazilian, and other styles – often with the kind of gentle warmth that we love from Cantuaria's own recordings, but ... CD
A great tribute to the late bassist Jimmy Blanton – served up by his old boss Duke Ellington, working here on piano alongside the bass of Ray Brown! This spare piano/bass session is a rarity in Duke's catalog – and it's a real later gem that captures the warmth and imagination of the ... CD
