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 ByrdDonald Byrd & 125th Street, NYC ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Smoking work from Donald Byrd – post-Blue Note, post-Larry Mizell, and with a modern funk groove that's still pretty darn tasty! Not one to rest on his laurels – which he could have easily done with endless Mizell-based recordings – Donald shifts his groove here towards more of a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a gold foil promo stamp.)

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

✨✧ Ron CarterEtudes ... LP
Elektra, 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 LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a spot of price sticker residue.)

George DukeGeorge Duke (1986) ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $9.99
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 CD

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

✨✧ George DukeThief In The Night ... LP
Elektra, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... 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

✨✧ Chico FreemanTradition In Transition ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily 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 LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John KlemmerMagnificent Madness ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Elektra, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A smooth jazzy classic from Pieces Of A Dream – and a real standout from the early 80s scene! The core trio of Curtis Harmon on drums, James Lloyd on keys, and Cedric Napoleon on bass are produced by Grover Washington with a fuller feel than usual – taking the piano trio approach of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pieces Of A DreamWe Are One ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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.
