CD

A dreamy dreamy little record – and one of our favorite discoveries in recent months! These guys are a cool little combo that uses vibes, piano, sax, and percussion to spin out grooves in a breezy 60s mode – not really mod, but more influenced by European jazz, a bit of bossa, and just the right American pop touches! The sound is completely sublime – steeped in historical references, but very much its own kind of bag – and with some wonderful use of vibes that gives the whole thing a really cool and mellow sort of feel, even when the record is grooving nicely. Plus, there's even a bit of vocals on the set – including one great French track that features lyrics sung by the legendary Pierre Barouh, and a great cover of the Ray Terrace track "I Make A Fool Of Myself", sung by Maiia Barouh in a jazzy swinging style! Titles include "Fascinated Groove", "I Make A Fool Of Myself", "Bluesette", "Stone Cold", "Stinger", "Fascinated Blues", "Just You Just Me", and "The Beauties Of Nature".  © 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.

The most recent CD by the Greyboy All Stars, and a nice tight batch of grooves with a loud jazz funk sound in the tradition of the JBs, or some of the classic recordings from the late 60's on Prestige.

Bulljun & El Barrio 2016
P-Vine (Japan), 2006. Used

Groove Collective

Groove Collective
Giant Step/Reprise, 1994. Used
The group's first, with production courtesy the great Gary Katz, who's put a fine touch on many Steely Dan LPs. While we were a bit dismissive of this effort at the time, it's kind of become a bit of a watershed in retrospect, the high water mark for the American Acid Jazz scene, if a bit ... CD

My Kinda Funk
Perfect Toy (Germany), 2005. Used
