✨✧ 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

✨✧ Ron CarterEtudes ... CD
Elektra/Discovery, 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 CD

✨✧ Chick CoreaAgain & Again ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from Chick Corea – recorded in the early 80s, but with a sweet electric groove that takes us back to his best from a decade before! Chick plays Fender Rhodes and other keyboards – and works here with a group that has a nice sort of angular edge – none of the too- ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Elektra/BGO (UK), 1982/1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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

Bird does a guest spot with the DC area big band then known as The Orchestra.

Elektra, 1982. Very Good ... $9.99
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. We're not certain who's the vocalist on the rap ... (Soul, Jazz) read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Pieces Of A DreamWe Are One ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... 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 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

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!
