New Donald ByrdDonald Byrd & 125th Street, NYC ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy .... Temporarily 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

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

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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Stanley Clarke & Chick CoreaGriffith Park Collection ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy .... 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! Bassist Stanley Clarke and pianist Chick Corea really return to their roots here – Stanley with some of the ... read more CD

George DukeGeorge Duke (1986) ... CD
1986. New Copy .... Around June 25, 2014
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

New Stan Getz & Albert DaileyPoetry ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1984. New Copy .... 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!

New Dexter GordonAmerican Classic ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
An unusual later set from the great Dexter Gordon – and a record that features the surprising addition of Hammond organ!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Chico HamiltonNomad ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Electric funky Chico Hamilton! This one's an oft-overlooked gem from the end of the 70s – a batch of sweet electric fusion tunes that sounds unlike anything else we can think of by Chico – with a cool and spacey sound that feels more like work coming out of Fantasy Records at the time, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New John KlemmerFinesse ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1983. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
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 CD

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

Lee RitenourCaptain's Journey ... CD
1979. New Copy .... Around June 25, 2014
The Captain's Journey is another masterful fusion outing from Lee – 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! Players on the set include ... read more CD

New Red Rodney & Ira SullivanSpirit Within ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy .... 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! There's little of the boppish roots of ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Red Rodney & Ira SullivanSprint ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1983. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A tremendous live performance from the group co-led by Red Rodney and Ira Sullivan – two players who really bring a lot to each other's music!

New Woody ShawNight Music ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1983. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
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
New Woody Shaw with Bobby HutchersonMaster Of The Art ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
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 Steps AheadMagnetic ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1986. New Copy .... 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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Steps AheadModern Times ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1984. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Stanley TurrentineBetcha ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Sealed .... Just Sold Out!
Stanley Turrentine's blowing here amidst some soaring arrangements from Gene Page – set in a smoothly soulful territory that draws on all of Page's great work on the LA scene of the 70s, but which still keeps the voice of Stanley very upfront in the mix. There's a bit less of the Turrentine ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley TurrentineHome Again ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
A smooth session, but a great one – proof that Stanley Turrentine was one of the few jazz players who could step into a set of larger arrangements and sound as soulful as his small combo work! The format here has plenty of modern R&B touches from producer Chuck Jackson – Capitol ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Stanley TurrentineInflation ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Used .... Out Of Stock
Stan the Man's at the top of his game here – working with full backings from Wade Marcus, but still rich and creative on his solos! There's few other players who can match Turrentine in this setting – as Stan always steps out from the larger arrangements and brings his best to the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Stanley TurrentineTender Togetherness ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Very Good+ .... $1.99
A smooth groover from Stanley Turrentine's early 80s years – and like a lot of electric jazz sessions from the time, a record that's got more than a few R&B touches! The Turrentine sound on the tenor is still very firmly in place – stepping out amidst the backings with that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Back cover has a few small peeled spots.)

McCoy TynerDimensions ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1983. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
An overlooked later album from McCoy Tyner – and a set that not only has frequent partner Gary Bartz on alto sax, but also features some excellent violin from the enigmatic John Blake! The album's a quintet date – with John Lee on bass and Willy Fletcher on drums – and the mix of ... read more CD

New Grover Washington JrCome Morning ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Grover Washington blows over some great arrangements from William Eaton – full, but lean too – and with the same sort of slinky groove that always worked best for Grover back at Kudu Records!

Grover Washington JrParadise ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Very Good+ .... $2.99
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

New Lenny WhiteAttitude ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Used .... Out Of Stock
A snapping batch of 80s soul from Lenny White – and a set that has him very strongly moving into the R&B mainstream of the time! Lenny's still got his hand on the drums for the set, but the real strength of the album is in its overall sound – a smooth, soulful approach that puts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Lenny WhiteStreamline ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Used .... Temporarily 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
