✨✧ Clifford Brown & Max RoachPure Genius Vol 1 ... LP
Elektra, 1956/1982. Very Good ... $2.99
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

✨✧ Donald ByrdThank You For FUML (Funkin Up My Life) ... 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! Byrd loostens up the smoother backgrounds of his recent Larry Mizell helmed work, and in their place are grooves ... read more CD

✨✧ Teddy CharlesVibe-rant ... LP
Elektra, 1957. Very Good- ... $24.99
A rare 50s session from vibist Teddy Charles – and easily one of his greatest records of the decade! The session's got a bit more open swing and harder groove than some of Charles' slightly more academic work from a few years before – more hardbop in conception, and handled in a way ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(White label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear on the spine and initials in marker on back. Labels have initials in marker.)

Larry Coryell & Philip CatherineSplendid ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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

Bill EvansParis Concert – Edition One ... CD
Elektra/Warner, 1979. Used ... $5.99
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 CD

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 ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1982. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
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! The album's a surprising one for an early 80s major label release – a great reminder ... read more CD

Eric GaleBlue Horizon/Island Breeze ... CD
Elektra/BGO (UK), 1982/1983. New Copy ... $15.99
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

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

Elektra, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
Classic early 80s electro-modern jazz crossover from Pieces Of A Dream produced by Grover Washington, that bounces along with an infectious groove that makes this an old school favorite, alongside similar numbers by Bernard Wright or Paul Hardcastle. (Soul, Jazz) 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lee RitenourFeel The Night ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet electric fusion from Lee Ritenour – a key album from a time when he was still very much at the top of his game! Although tight overall, the album's never too commercial to be cloying – and Lee's approach here is a great example of the way that mainstream 70s fusion managed to ... read more CD

✨✧ Lee RitenourRit ... LP
Elektra, Used ... Out Of Stock
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

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 ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1983. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
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!
