Elektra, 1980. Very Good ... $14.99
One of Dollar Brand's more ambitious albums – featuring a larger group of players than usual, working through some compositions that have as much life and spirit as might be implied by the title!

Elektra, 1978. Near Mint- ... $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 ... $14.99
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

Bill EvansParis Concert – Edition Two ... CD
Blue Note/Elektra, 1979. Used ... $2.99
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 ... Out Of Stock
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

John KlemmerSolo Saxophone 2 – Life ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Near Mint- ... $11.99
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

John McLaughlinMy Goal's Beyond (Elektra Musician pressing) ... LP
Elektra, 1970. Sealed ... $9.99
Two sides of McLaughlin, both showcasing his spiritual exploratory inclination.

✨✧ Pieces Of A DreamWe Are One ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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.

✨✧ Lee RitenourRit ... LP
Elektra, Used ... 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 LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Red Rodney & Ira SullivanSpirit Within ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

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!
