Art BlakeyMidnight Session With The Jazz Messengers ... LP
Elektra, 1957. Very Good- ... $43.99
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 ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Donald Byrd & 125th Street, NYCLove Byrd ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Very Good ... $6.99
Funky electric groove from Donald Byrd – a post Mizell effort that's still burning in a crisp groove similar to his classic 70s Blue Note work – one that's absolutely dripping with keys! Isaac Hayes produced this one, and also played a lot of those keyboards on the session with Byrd's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ron CarterEtudes ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
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

George DukeGeorge Duke (1986) ... LP
Elektra, 1986. Near Mint- ... $2.99
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 (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $9.99
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 CD

✨✧ George DukeThief In The Night ... LP
Elektra, 1985. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Warmly soulful work from George Duke – a record that's got a relatively lean feel overall, one that mostly has Duke's vocals and keyboards dancing nicely on top of some catchy 80s rhythms! There's a relatively electric feel to the set – but one that's almost more on the percussion than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bill EvansParis Concert – Edition Two ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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 FreemanTradition In Transition ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1982. Used ... $8.99
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! The album's a surprising one for an early 80s major label release – a great reminder ... read more CD

✨✧ Chico HamiltonNomad ... CD
Elektra/Collectables, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
Electric funky Chico Hamilton! This one's an oft-overlooked gem from the end of the 70s – a batch of sweet electric fusion tunes that sounds unlike anything else we can think of by Chico – with a cool and spacey sound that feels more like work coming out of Fantasy Records at the time, ... 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 ... $4.99
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

Lee RitenourBanded Together ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $9.99
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 ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... On July 29, 2015
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
