CD

A really really amazing little set – and a package that goes way beyond most other complete album collections on the market! First off, this one is REALLY complete – as it not only features all of Herbie Hancock's Columbia albums from the US, but also his rare Japanese-only records, and key sessions with other artists like the VSOP group, singer Kimiko Kasai, and pianist Chick Corea – all wrapped up in a totally cool box that features a 200 page book, and tiny LP sleeve versions of each individual album! There's a number of albums never issued in the US, and a few others are making their US debut on CD too – mixed here with key classics, and some others that haven't been in print for years. Herbie's sense of vision and genius hold strong throughout – from electric to acoustic to electric and more acoustic modes recorded over a 16 year span between 1972 and 1988. Albums include Sextant, Head Hunters, Dedication, Thrust, Death Wish, Flood, Man-Child, Secrets, VSOP, Herbie Hancock Trio, VSOP The Quintet, VSOP Tempest In The Colosseum, An Evening With Herbie Hancock & Chick Corea, Sunlight, Feets Don't Fail Me Now, Directstep, Live Under The Stars, Five Stars, Butterfly (with Kimiko Kasai), Monster, Mr Hands, Magic Windows, Herbie Hancock Trio with Ron Carter & Tony Williams, Quartet, Lite Me Up, Future Shock, Sound System, Village Life (with Foday Musa Suso), Round Midnight (soundtrack), and Perfect Machine. A stunner of a set – even if you already own some of the records inside!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print. A great copy of a fantastic box set – just a little minor shelf wear on the outer box and everything else is in great shape!)

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.

Herbie Hancock

Headhunters
Columbia, 1974. Used
A seminal jazz funk session of the 70s – Herbie Hancock's legendary meeting with The Headhunters, and a killer batch of tunes that really gave the combo their name! Herbie's playing a wide range of keys here – including Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and Arp – but almost even better is ... CD

Dave Brubeck

Time Out
Columbia, 1959. Used
Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz! At the time of the set, Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and the rest had already been making plenty ... CD
Columbia, 1959. Used 2 CDs
The ultimate Miles Davis album – the one that includes so many songs that we've heard way too much in Starbucks, in retail stores, or at a friend's house who claims to be a "jazz expert", but is really a yuppie dilettante. Yet somehow, over all the years, and all those playings, ... CD

Miles Davis

Decoy
Columbia, 1984. Used
The decoy here might be in the rhythms, which are often electric, but still played live – handled by Robert Irving III on many tracks, with a cool 80s fusion sound that's mighty nice! The style of the album's a nice change from the Miles groove of the 70s – a bit leaner, with almost a ... CD

Monk's Dream
Columbia, 1963. Used
The first Thelonious Monk album for Columbia Records – and one of the best, as well – a beautiful illustration of the way that his shift in labels really set some new fire to his music in the early 60s! The group is Monk's sharp-edged quartet with the amazing Charlie Rouse on tenor, ... CD

Thelonious Monk

Underground
Columbia, 1968. Used
One of the most gimmicky cover images ever used to sell the music of Thelonious Monk (and Monk himself hated the image) – but a key classic from his legendary years at Columbia Records! The album's got an edge that definitely lives up to its title – even if the cover photo is a bad ... CD
