Joe AlbanyPortrait Of An Artist ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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, 1978. Used ... Temporarily 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!

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 Stanley Clarke & Chick CoreaGriffith Park Collection ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal set in the rebirth of straight jazz in the early 80s – a wonderful record with a much warmer, more traditional feel than you'd expect from some of the players involved!

Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Acoustic duets between Larry Coryell and Philip Catherine – recorded with a style that's much more intimate and personal than some of the previous recordings by either player!

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

George DukeNight After Night ... LP
Elektra, 1989. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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!

Eric GaleBlue Horizon ... CD
Elektra/Discovery, 1982. Used ... $22.99
Smooth fusion from guitarist Eric Gale – Blue Horizon is a focused record with a style that's still relatively smooth, yet a bit more in the mode that we like on Gale's 70s work. The core group features some nice keyboards from Peter Schott and drums from Freddie Waits – and Hugh ... read more CD

Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
Hard-jamming fusion from Jan Hammer – two albums recorded before his later fame of the Miami Vice years!

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

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

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

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

SweetbottomAngels Of The Deep ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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

New Grover Washington JrAnthology Of Grover Washington ... CD
Elektra, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from the second chapter of Grover Washington's career – his post-Kudu run over at Elektra Records! The work here's a bit tighter than the Kudu sides, but still pretty great overall – thanks to that key Washington approach to a solo – a sense of space and soul that few ... read more CD

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. Very Good+ ... $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

Lenny WhiteStreamline ... LP
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. Plus, he's working here with a pretty soulful fusion group that includes Don Blackman on keyboards and Marcus ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New John ZornNaked City ... CD
Elektra, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first, and arguably the best, of John Zorn's Naked City albums.
