Joe AlbanyPortrait Of An Artist ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A great portrait of an under-recorded artist – Joe Albany's last album ever, recorded for Elektra records during their early 80s run of straight jazz sides! The record's got a spare, personal quality that's similar to Albany's other late work – but it's a bit more professionally put ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdDonald Byrd & 125th Street, NYC ... CD
Elektra, 1979. Used ... $9.99
Smoking work from Donald Byrd – post-Blue Note, post-Larry Mizell, and with a modern funk groove that's still pretty darn tasty! Not one to rest on his laurels – which he could have easily done with endless Mizell-based recordings – Donald shifts his groove here towards more of a ... read more CD

Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A post-Blue Note effort, and Donald's changing things up a bit with his 125th Street Orchestra and Uptown Singers – funking along in a way you'd expect from the longwinded title!

New Donald Byrd & 125th Street, NYCLove Byrd ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky electric groove from Donald Byrd – a post Mizell effort that's still burning in a crisp groove similar to his classic 70s Blue Note work – one that's absolutely dripping with keys! Isaac Hayes produced this one, and also played a lot of those keyboards on the session with Byrd's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Chick CoreaAgain & Again ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good ... $2.99
An overlooked gem from Chick Corea – recorded in the early 80s, but with a sweet electric groove that takes us back to his best from a decade before! Chick plays Fender Rhodes and other keyboards – and works here with a group that has a nice sort of angular edge – none of the too- ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

George DukeGeorge Duke (1986) ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $13.99
A real move forward for the George Duke keyboard sound of the 80s – and a set that has George using a fair bit of synclavier and linn drums in the mix! Things are almost even more electric than before – and that's saying a lot for Duke – with almost no acoustic instrumentation at ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New George DukeNight After Night (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Quite a soul-based set from the great George Duke – a set that not only features his strong keyboards, but also a fair bit of vocals from singers Phil Perry, Jeffery Osborne, and James Ingram – all of whom are a great fit for Duke's evolving sound! Duke had worked heavily with singers ... read more CD

New John McLaughlinMy Goal's Beyond (Elektra Musician pressing) ... LP
Elektra, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Two sides of McLaughlin, both showcasing his spiritual exploratory inclination.

Mingus DynastyChair In The Sky ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A bold statement from former members of the Charles Mingus group – working here together as a unit after the passing of Mingus, in a set that has some of the best fire and energy of Charles' later years! The tracks here are all Mingus compositions – performed in longish takes that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
The debut of a genius group that would forever transform the sound of electric jazz in the 80s – and a brilliant set that few others could match at the time! Pieces Of A Dream first snuck onto the scene with a sound that was refreshingly subtle at the time – almost a back-to-basics ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

First-ever issue of material recorded live by Bud in 1953 – during a performance at Club Kavakos in Washington, DC – with a trio that features Charles Mingus on bass and Roy Haynes on drums.

Lee RitenourBanded Together ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... Around December 10, 2014
Lee Ritenour's banded together here with a few different vocalists – most notably Eric Tagg and John Massaro – both of whom serve up lyrics over Lee's work on electric guitar! The approach is one that's obviously trying for a crossover hit – and the record shakes off some of the ... read more CD

Lee RitenourCaptain's Journey ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A masterful fusion set from guitarist Lee Ritenour – one that expands his sound a bit more than usual by adding in vocals on a number of tracks – but in a way that really gets at the mainstream soul influences that bubble through his jazz work! The set features key vocal appearances ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lee RitenourRit ... LP
Elektra, Very Good+ ... $1.99
Few people did soulful fusion better than Lee Ritenour back in the early 80s – and the guitarist always seemed to find a way to really link together all the different sounds of the electric genre – from heavy jamming to soulful grooving to a rock-like appreciation for a good hook! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Red Rodney & Ira SullivanSpirit Within ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really beautiful work from the team of Red Rodney and Ira Sullivan – hardly the sort of stuff we might have heard from the players a decade or two before – and a sophisticated batch of tunes that has them stretching out in rich musical directions!

Woody ShawNight Music ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
A real standout set from the 80s years of trumpeter Woody Shaw – a solidly burning live set that blows away most of his studio work from the time! The album's noteworthy first of all for the presence of Bobby Hutcherson on vibes – whose soulful spiritual approach of the period ... read more CD

New Woody Shaw with Bobby HutchersonMaster Of The Art ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant date from the later years of Woody Shaw – an album that equally shows Woody's own talents, and those of his key group of younger players too! Shaw's trumpet is perfect in both modes here – the hard-blown righteous numbers Woody first gave the world from his start, and the ... read more CD

New Jimmy SmithKeep On Comin ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great back to basics session from organist Jimmy Smith – recorded live in the early 80s, but with a freewheeling small combo sound that takes us back to his Blue Note years! The group on the album's a quartet – with Jimmy on both piano and organ, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Johnny ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy SmithOff The Top ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lean little set from Jimmy Smith's back to basics years of the early 80s – an album that's recorded in a relatively old school soul jazz mode! Jimmy's mostly playing Hammond here – but also uses a bit of Arp strings at times – and the rest of the group members include George ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Steps AheadMagnetic ... CD
Elektra, 1986. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tightly grooving mid 80s fusion from Steps Ahead – their last album to feature Michael Brecker – who's killing it here on his electronic wind instrument, plus his old standby tenor sax! Fellow Steps Ahead innovator Mike Mainieri is on vibes and more, with drummer/percussionist Peter ... read more CD

Steps AheadModern Times ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99

As with other Steps Ahead records, the vibes really balance out ... read more CD

SweetbottomAngels Of The Deep ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A tight set of fusion from Sweetbottom – an American combo who definitely seem to draw a lot from the rock-inspired Euro fusion sound of a few years before! There's also a bit of the PM Records vibe – from the Steve Grossman/Gene Perla camp – lots of sharp, fast changes in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Grover Washington JrInside Moves ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
If there's anyone we trust with a fusion groove, it's the great Grover Washington – as Washington's 70s albums for Kudu are still the blueprint for mixing saxophone solos with electric jazzy backing – a rich legacy he continued strongly into later years! This early 80s set has ... read more CD

Grover Washington JrParadise ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint- ... $0.99
One of those records you see so much it's easy to forget how great it is! Grover's a real genius with the sax on this record – taking a "less is more" cue from Stanley Turrentine's 70s work, and toning down his playing to an even tighter style than on the Kudu albums of earlier ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Sure, as the title says, Lenny's streamlined his sound here – but to us that's a good thing, as it eliminates some of the overly-heavy jam sound that could ruin earlier records.
