New 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 (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
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

New Donald ByrdThank You For FUML (Funkin Up My Life) ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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! Byrd loostens up the smoother backgrounds of his recent Larry Mizell helmed work, and in their place are grooves ... read more CD

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
George DukeNight After Night (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $13.99
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 Chico FreemanTangents ... LP
Elektra, 1984. Used ... Out Of Stock
Surprisingly dark music for a mid 80s major label jazz album – especially one that features guest work from Bobby McFerrin! Chico Freeman's definitely keeping true to his adventurous roots here – blowing some sharply angular lines on a range of reeds, and exploring both older jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Stan Getz & Albert DaileyPoetry ... LP
Elektra, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lovely later recording from Stan Getz – very spare and spacious, and recorded with a casual approach that's quite striking, and really fresh! The album features Stan playing alongside pianist Albert Dailey – with no other rhythm accompaniment, just piano and tenor sax. The tunes are ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John KlemmerFinesse ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A smooth set from reedman John Klemmer, but a pretty darn soulful one too – and a great illustration of the way that Klemmer could still hold onto his roots a lot more strongly than some of his contemporaries! The backings are gentle and fusiony – often with some great keyboard work ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New John KlemmerHush ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sly and subtle soul from saxophonist John Klemmer – a set that's somewhat smooth, but still filled with a great deal of feeling – and just the right blend of Klemmer's earlier searching style with some of the more soul-inspired modes of his later years. Klemmer plays tenor, soprano sax ... read more CD

John McLaughlinMy Goal's Beyond (Elektra Musician pressing) ... LP
Elektra, 1970. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Two sides of McLaughlin, both showcasing his spiritual exploratory inclination. The first side of this album is solo guitar, or rather McLaughlin multi tracking himself, performing a number of shorter pieces, like Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" and Miles' "Blue In Green", plus ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Pieces Of A DreamPieces Of A Dream ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Used ... Temporarily 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

Bud PowellInner Fires ... LP
Elektra, 1953/1982. Sealed ... $11.99
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. The set's from the private collection of Bill Potts, and is reasonably well recorded for the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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
New Lee RitenourOn The Line ... LP
Elektra, 1982/1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
On The Line has a style that's a bit keyboard-heavy – in a way that seems to borrow from some of the 80s soundtrack work of the time, and which is clearly a nod to the success of the Lyle Mays/Pat Metheny sound that was breaking big on ECM. The move is a nice one for Lee on the best cuts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Lee RitenourRit ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
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 CD

New Woody ShawNight Music ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Woody Shaw with Bobby HutchersonMaster Of The Art ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Steps AheadModern Times ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
A classic set from this fusion supergroup – a great quintet that features keyboards from Warren Bernhardt, vibes from Mike Mainieri, tenor and soprano from Michael Brecker, bass from Eddie Gomez, and drums from Peter Erskine. As with other Steps Ahead records, the vibes really balance out ... read more CD

Steps AheadSteps Ahead ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A classic bit of early 80s fusion – from this supergroup that included Michael Brecker on tenor, Eliane Elias on piano, Peter Erskine on drums, Eddie Gomez on bass, and Mike Maineri on vibes! The sound's a lot more acoustic than you'd expect from the time and the setting, but the overall ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New 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- ... $3.99
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

John ZornNaked City ... CD
Elektra, 1989. Used ... $7.99
The first, and arguably the best, of John Zorn's Naked City albums. The sound is extremely intense, and represents a blinding blend of influences, most of which Zorn had been showcasing in more easy going settings on previous albums. The core group includes Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz, Fred Frith ... read more CD
