✨✧ Joe AlbanyPortrait Of An Artist ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily 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

Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Stanley Clarke & Chick CoreaGriffith Park Collection ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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

Larry Coryell & Philip CatherineSplendid ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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! Although Coryell first rose to fame at the end of the 60s with his fuzzy approach to jazz fusion, he's clearly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Larry Coryell & Philip CatherineTwin House ... LP
Elektra, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Compelling duets between guitarists Larry Coryell and Philip Catherine – a studio album recorded in London, hot on the heels of their performance together at the Berliner Jazztage! Although known for their electric musings at the time, both players work here mostly in an acoustic mode – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George DukeGeorge Duke (1986) ... LP
Elektra, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico FreemanTangents ... LP
Elektra, 1984. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra/BGO (UK), 1982/1983. New Copy ... $14.99
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

Elektra, 1984. Used ... Temporarily 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! 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

✨✧ John KlemmerMagnificent Madness ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Used ... Temporarily 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 LP, Vinyl record album

John KlemmerSolo Saxophone 2 – Life ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Near Mint- ... $2.99
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

✨✧ Lee OskarBefore The Rain ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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! Includes the massive "Haunted House", a nice groover which is a classic with the Chicago steppers. Other tracks include "Steppin&qu ... (Soul, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra, 1953. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Bird does a guest spot with the DC area big band then known as The Orchestra.

Lee RitenourRit ... LP
Elektra, Very Good+ ... $2.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album
