Donald ByrdDonald Byrd & 125th Street, NYC ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Donald ByrdThank You For FUML (Funkin Up My Life) ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A great chapter in the career of trumpeter Donald Byrd – his post-Blue Note work with the group 125th Street NYC – which is kind of a second chapter to the jazzy fusion style he developed at the start of the 70s! This time around, there's an equal emphasis on soul and jazz – ... read more CD

✨✧ Ron CarterEtudes ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
A warmly acoustic set from Ron Carter – an early 80s album for Elektra that continues the great run of work as a leader he first began in the 70s! The format here is quite laidback and unassuming – a piano-less group that has Ron's work on bass right out front in the mix – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has moderate wear, with tape, stickers & a cutout hole.)

Chico FreemanTangents ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1984. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
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 CD

Smooth fusion from guitarist Eric Gale – 2 80s albums for Elektra, back to back on one CD! Island Breeze has a sound that lives up to its name – one with slight tropical touches in the rhythms and the instrumentation, and a way of recording Gale's guitar that brings out a bit more ... read more CD

✨✧ Dexter GordonAmerican Classic ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An unusual later set from the great Dexter Gordon – and a record that features the surprising addition of Hammond organ! Shirley Scott's on the record with Dex, and plays organ on half the cuts (Kirk Lightsey handles piano on the others) – bringing a soulful depth to the record which ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John KlemmerSolo Saxophone 2 – Life ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An early 80s set from John Klemmer – an album that's indeed mostly solo saxophone genius – and it's pretty wondeful! The record does have some additional instrumentation and vocalese from Klemmer, and a vocal tune with Clint Holmes, but it's the sparest stuff here that's really the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mingus DynastyChair In The Sky ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
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!

Lee OskarBefore The Rain ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Very Good ... $4.99
Classic album of mellow jazzy cuts, recorded by War's famous harmonica player, along with arrangements by Billy Page that have a killer dope 70s sound!

Elektra, 1953. Used ... Out Of Stock
Bird does a guest spot with the DC area big band then known as The Orchestra.

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Lee RitenourOn The Line ... LP
Elektra, 1982/1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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

Red Rodney & Ira SullivanSpirit Within ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1982. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
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

Red Rodney & Ira SullivanSprint ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Near Mint- ... $2.99
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!

✨✧ Patrice RushenNow ... LP
Elektra, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet sounds from the lovely lady – one of Patrice Rushen's last truly great albums, and a masterpiece of 80s groove with lots of jazzy touches! The keyboard sound has evolved a bit here – compressed with more electronic percussion than on Patrice's earlier records, but still done with ... (Soul, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
