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 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.
A great set from tenorist Ian Hendrickson Smith – a player you might know from his work with Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings! Smith was in the Dap-Kings for a good part of the oughties, but has really opened up as a jazz musician too – and here, he really cooks in the wonderful ... CD
A great showcase for the mighty talents of alto saxophonist Will Vinson – who blows these beautiful long solos here in a sharp live setting! The album's got a great sense of personality – individual musicians who each have a strong voice of their own, coming together under Vinson's ... CD
One of our favorite Dexter Gordon sessions for Blue Note – and a unique album that's one of the first to illustrate his growing role in the European jazz scene! The group's a quartet – which let's Dex stand out front with plenty of space for marvelous tenor work – and it features ... CD
Later live work from Dizzy Gillespie – working in London here with a very hip ensemble! We're not entirely sure of the date, but given the skinny ties on a few of the players, we're guessing it's from that 80s stretch when Dizzy was still going strong – working in a great mix of Latin ... CD
An excellent overview of the early Wallace Roney work for Muse Records – brilliant sessions that helped Roney redefine the sound of the trumpet for a whole new generation! Roney's sound was one of the boldest, brightest on the label – and on records like this he really shines – ... CD
Rare Blue Note work from Dexter Gordon – an album that was recorded during Gordon's legendary run for the label in the 60s, but not issued until a brief vinyl pressing nearly 15 years later! The record's got Gordon vamping in tight hardbop formation – a sound that's strongly 60s Blue ... CD
A straight jazz piano trio, but a really great one – a group whose work sparkles with a sense of dynamic energy that belies their origins on the French jazz scene – home to some wonderfully freewheeling piano combos at the end of the 20th century! The work's got a balance of ... CD
The cover's black and white, but the album's filled with wonderful colors in sound – a bold array of work from pianist Donald Brown – working here with a hip lineup that includes Vincent Herring on alto and soprano sax, Tom Harrell on trumpet, and Steve Nelson on vibes! Nelson's sharp, ... CD
The album's got a bit of an odd title – as we hardly think that Redman was living on the edge at the time – but it's also a great little set, no matter what the name! Dewey's playing in a soulful and inside mode on most tracks – working in a style that recalls some of Archie ... CD
Tom Halter & Daniel Rosenthal on trumpet, Joel Yennior on trombone, Goodwin Louis on alto saxophone, Russ Gershon on tenor & soprano saxophone, Charlie Kohlhase & Kurtis Rivers on baritone saxophone, Henry Cook on flute, Rafael Alcala on piano & Hammond B3 organ, Rick McLaughlin on ... CD
The first full length album by Seek – one of the leading lights in the hip Atlanta scene that also includes Laurnea, Donnie, and Julie Dexter! The record's been in the works for years, but it's been worth waiting for – as the group's evolved into a really tight soul outfit with a great ... CD
