✨✧ Clifford Brown & Max RoachPure Genius Vol 1 ... LP
Elektra, 1956/1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Absolutely burning live recording of Brownie's group co led with Max Roach, and also featuring Sony Rollins. This set features some the group's best playing, limited only by the mediocre sound quality of the recording. Great extended takes on "I'll Remember April", 'What's New", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ron CarterEtudes ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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

✨✧ Stanley Clarke & Chick CoreaGriffith Park Collection ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Joao DonatoLeiliadas ... CD
Elektra (Brazil), 1986. Used ... $11.99
An overlooked gem from keyboardist Joao Donato – cut in a mid 80s stretch when he was hardly doing any recording at all! The set's almost more of a jazz record than some of Donato's previous work – recorded with a warm vibe that's right up there with the best Brazilian fusion of the ... (Brazil, Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Bill EvansParis Concert – Edition One ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Sealed ... $19.99
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

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

Chico FreemanTradition In Transition ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A well-titled set from Chico Freeman – as the reedman definitely takes older modern modes into new territory here – moving in almost Monk-ish space, but with some sharper, bolder tones overall!

Eric GaleBlue Horizon/Island Breeze ... CD
Elektra/BGO (UK), 1982/1983. New Copy ... About April 22, 2016 (delayed)
Smooth fusion from guitarist Eric Gale – 2 80s albums for Elektra, back to back on one CD! Blue Horizon is a 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 ... read more CD

✨✧ Stan Getz & Albert DaileyPoetry ... LP
Elektra, 1984. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

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 KlemmerMagnificent Madness ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Nothing too mad from reedman John Klemmer – but a set that nicely continues that spacey sound that Klemmer first created at Impulse Records, then moved into some warmer, more soulful territory on records like this! Klemmer's still got an incredibly strong sound on tenor – rich and full ... read more CD

John KlemmerSolo Saxophone 2 – Life ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1981. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
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 CD
