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.

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 list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

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.

Mercury (Japan), 1959/1960. Used
We've never seen an original pressing of "Volume 2" of this LP, so we're assuming this is a Japanese-only vinyl issue of outtakes from those sessions. The original side's a very swingin', very groovy early album from Quincy – a big band recording, but handled with soulful touches ... CD
TCB (France), 1960. Used
A great entry in this legendary series – featuring material from the famous 1960 European tour by Quincy Jones – an all-star group with trumpets from Benny Bailey and Roger Guerin, trombones from Melba Liston and Jimmy Cleveland, flute and guitar from Les Spann, piano from Patti Brown, ... CD

Quincy Jones

Go West, Man!
GRP/ABC, 1957. Used
Quincy turns his soul jazz arranging style to a band filled with West Coast players, and he gets them to groove a lot more than you'd expect! Players include Herb Geller, Art Pepper, Charlie Mariano, Bill Perkins, and Walter Benton. The tracks are short, with tight solo space, and most of them ... CD

Quincy Jones

Impulse, 1961. Used
A very soulful set of big band material from Quincy Jones – recorded during that tight early 60s period when his arrangements just couldn't fail! The album's his only session for Impulse, and it's got a slightly deeper style than his work from the time for Mercury – a bit more ... CD

Quincy Jones

Big Band Bossa Nova
Mercury/Verve, 1962. Used
Perhaps THE greatest Quincy Jones album of the 60s – a hard-swinging batch of big band bossa tunes – and one of the greatest American takes on the bossa sound ever! Quincy really brings a lot of soul to the set – syncopating the bottom end of the tunes to really bring out the ... CD
Columbia, 1992. Used
Featuring Bill Frisell, Vernon Reid, Geri Allen, Don Byron, Elvis Costello, Mark Ribot, Greg Cohen, Don Alias, Dr. John, and many others. CD

Joseph Jarman & Famoudou Don Moye

Calypso's Smile
AECO/Southport, 1984/1991. Used
A CD that reissues 2 different sessions recorded by Jarman and Moye – one from 1984 and one from 1991. Jarman plays a host of reed instruments that include flute, bass clarinet, soprano, tenor, and alto saxes – and Moye plays assorted percussion. Essiet Okon Essiet also plays bass on ... CD

Art Ensemble Of Soweto (Art Ensemble Of Chicago)

America – South Africa
DIW/Columbia, 1989/1990. Used
A second pairing of the Art Ensemble Of Chicago and the Amabutho Male Chorus – one that's indicated not just in the title of the record, but in a changing of the group's name! The sound here is even more Afro-styled than the previous effort – coming across right from the start with a ... CD

Kenny Barron

Sunnyside, 2004. Used
A great set from the always-soulful Kenny Barron – stepping out here with a sense of soulful interplay that recalls his best recordings of the 70s! The group on the album's a quintet, graced by some extremely strong work on vibes by Stefon Harris – who brings an almost Bobby Hutcherson- ... CD
Watt/ECM (Germany), 1988. Used
Just Carla Bley on piano and Steve Swallow on bass! Tracks include "Walking Batteriewoman", "Ups & Downs", "Reactionary Tango - Parts 1/2/3", and "Ladies In Mercedes". CD
