Best Big Band Jazz – Classics From The 1950s (10CD box set)

CD (Item 965145) Intense (Germany), 1950s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Not your usual public domain compilation of random big band tracks but actually a sweet collection of twenty orchestra and large groups albums by Billy Taylor, Art Farmer, Gil Evans, Louis Bellson, Stan Kenton, Marty Paich, Count Basie, Pete Rugolo, Duke Ellington, George Russell, and others. Yes, the packaging is a little skimpy, but the music is great!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
