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. 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.
With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of
surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be
clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we
handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted
otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so
look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
A searing second session from the trio of Jonas Kullhammar on reeds, Torbjorn Zetterberg on bass, and Espen Aalberg on drums – all working here at a level that's even more mindblowing than the first Basement Sessions album! The music has this tremendous feel of cohesive collaboration – ... CD
A masterpiece through and through from arranger Gil Evans – a record of swinging modern backdrops, used to showcase both the solo talents of a young Cannonball Adderley, and the dynamic energy of Evans himself! Cannon's sharp-edged early tone is a really great sound for the record – ... CD
Jonas Kullhammar/Torbjorn Zetterberg/Espen Aalberg
Brilliantly bold tenor from the mighty Jonas Kullhammar – and some great baritone sax, too – set up here in a great trio with Torbjorn Zetterberg on bass and Espen Aalberg on drums! All players fit together perfectly – they should, given their previous work together – and ... CD
A killer lost session on Prestige – one that takes the two players in the lead into some sweetly soul jazz territory! Hal Singer plays tenor, and really gets room to wail here in one of his strongest American jazz-based sessions of the 60s – and Charlie Shaver's also pretty great too, ... CD
It may be just be us, but this seems like the best George Benson album we've heard in years! The songs are all very comfortably soul-based – often with vocals, and featuring some of the catchiest numbers we've heard from George a while. George's vocals have that wonderfully sweet sound that ... CD
A killer date from two of the hippest tenors of the west coast scene in the 50s – Bill Perkins and Richie Kamuca – both musicians who worked in the cool school, but could also come across with plenty of soul! The album's got both tenors working head on – hitting counterpoint ... CD
As classic as it comes for late 50s Blue Note – and a key meeting between Sonny Rollins and Thelonious Monk! The group on the set features Rollins and Monk with JJ Johnson, Paul Chambers, and Art Blakey – all of whom push things more in the direction of Blue Note's sound of the time, ... CD
A renku is a collaborative form of Japanese poetry, and that name definitely fits for this session – as it's a gentle batch of jazz numbers performed with equal energy from all members of the group – a lineup that includes Michael Attias on alto, John Hebert on bass, and Satoshi ... CD
