Art BlakeyMidnight Session With The Jazz Messengers ... LP
Elektra, 1957. Very Good- ... $49.99
One of the rarest Art Blakey sessions of the late 50s – recorded during that brief time when the Jazz Messengers featured Jackie McLean on alto sax! The set's also unusual in that it's one of the few jazz dates for Elektra Records in the early years – recorded here with an edge that's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original grey label pressing. Cover has some wear, splash stains across the top half, and a fully split top seam. Vinyl plays with some crackles.)

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

George DukeGeorge Duke (1986) ... LP
Elektra, 1986. Very Good- ... $0.99
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

George DukeNight After Night ... LP
Elektra, 1989. Very Good ... $2.99
Quite a soul-based set from the great George Duke – a set that not only features his strong keyboards, but also a fair bit of vocals from singers Phil Perry, Jeffery Osborne, and James Ingram – all of whom are a great fit for Duke's evolving sound! Duke had worked heavily with singers ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bill EvansParis Concert – Edition Two ... CD
Blue Note/Elektra, 1979. Used ... $4.99
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

John KlemmerMagnificent Madness ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Mingus DynastyChair In The Sky ... CD
Elektra/Collectables, 1979. Used ... $6.99
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! The tracks here are all Mingus compositions – performed in longish takes that ... read more CD

✨✧ Pieces Of A DreamWe Are One ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The group's second album – a nicely laidback album of soul and jazz tracks, produced by Grover Washington Jr with that clean and perfect sound he was getting on his own albums at the time. Includes the group's classic slammer "Mt Airy Groove" – a great old school hip hop ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lee RitenourBanded Together ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
Lee Ritenour's banded together here with a few different vocalists – most notably Eric Tagg and John Massaro – both of whom serve up lyrics over Lee's work on electric guitar! The approach is one that's obviously trying for a crossover hit – and the record shakes off some of the ... read more CD

Lee RitenourCaptain's Journey ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
A masterful fusion set from guitarist Lee Ritenour – 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! The set features key vocal appearances ... read more CD

✨✧ Lee RitenourFeel The Night ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint- ... $3.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Temporarily 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 CD

✨✧ Woody ShawNight Music ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Woody Shaw with Bobby HutchersonMaster Of The Art ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Elektra/Warner (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
A great major label debut for keyboardist Dan Siegel – a player who'd already been bumping around the indie underground for years, which helps to give him the experience and confidence you'll hear on the set! Dan wrote, arranged, and produced the record himself – in a mode that has his ... read more CD
