New Joe AlbanyPortrait Of An Artist ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

New Donald ByrdDonald Byrd & 125th Street, NYC ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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!

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 ... CD
Elektra, 1989. Used ... $6.99
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 Bill EvansParis Concert – Edition One ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sublime late live work from Bill Evans – a well-recorded performance for French radio, and one that really stands out from some of the scratchier late 70s concerts on the market! Bill's working here with a sound as sensitive and picturesque as the cover image – never pushing things too ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
A sweet and smooth set from Freddie Hubbard – one that builds on his funky fusion of the 70s, and delivers things with a warmer, fuller feel overall!

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

New 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

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

New Grover Washington JrParadise ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

New Lenny WhiteStreamline ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

John ZornNaked City ... CD
Elektra, 1989. Used ... $6.99
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
