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!

New Chick CoreaAgain & Again ... LP LP format
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

George DukeGeorge Duke (1986) ... CD CD format
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 (plus bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Elektra (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Bill EvansParis Concert – Edition Two ... CD CD format
Blue Note/Elektra, 1979. Used ... $6.99
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

New Eric GaleBlue Horizon ... LP LP format
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
Smooth fusion from guitarist Eric Gale – Blue Horizon is a focused record with a style that's still relatively smooth, yet a bit more in the mode that we like on Gale's 70s work. The core group features some nice keyboards from Peter Schott and drums from Freddie Waits – and Hugh ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra/Collectables, 1979. Used ... $8.99
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 CD format
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 CD format
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 RitenourRit ... CD CD format
Elektra (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
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 CD

Woody ShawNight Music ... CD CD format
Elektra (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $9.99
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 CD format
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

Jimmy SmithKeep On Comin ... LP LP format
Elektra, 1983. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A great back to basics session from organist Jimmy Smith – recorded live in the early 80s, but with a freewheeling small combo sound that takes us back to his Blue Note years! The group on the album's a quartet – with Jimmy on both piano and organ, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Johnny ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy SmithOff The Top ... LP LP format
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lean little set from Jimmy Smith's back to basics years of the early 80s – an album that's recorded in a relatively old school soul jazz mode!
