✨✧ 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

✨✧ Chick CoreaAgain & Again ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp.)

✨✧ George DukeNight After Night ... LP
Elektra, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Bill EvansParis Concert – Edition One ... CD
Elektra/Warner (Japan), 1979. Used ... $7.99
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

✨✧ Eric GaleBlue Horizon/Island Breeze ... 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

✨✧ Chico HamiltonNomad ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Used ... Temporarily 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 LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie HubbardRide Like The Wind ... CD
Elektra/Collectables, 1982. Used ... $5.99
A sweet and smooth set from Freddie Hubbard – one that builds on his funky fusion of the 70s, and delivers things with a warmer, fuller feel overall! The album's got Freddie fronting a very large group – one arranged by Allyn Ferguson, who also penned some of the album's best tracks as ... read more CD

✨✧ John KlemmerHush ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sly and subtle soul from saxophonist John Klemmer – a set that's somewhat smooth, but still filled with a great deal of feeling – and just the right blend of Klemmer's earlier searching style with some of the more soul-inspired modes of his later years. Klemmer plays tenor, soprano sax ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

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. Includes the group's classic slammer "Mt Airy Groove" – a great old school hip hop ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Red Rodney & Ira SullivanSprint ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1983. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
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! There's a mode here that really blows us away – a careful, sensitive approach that allows each horn player to hit their most lyrical moments ... read more CD

Stardrive with Robert MasonIntergalactic Trot ... LP
Elektra, 1973. Very Good ... $4.99
Space jazz for the 70s – a classic batch of synthesizer fusion from keyboardist Robert Mason, whose groove here is totally great! The album's got rhythms that are rooted in rock, but executed in jazz – making for a chunky, funky sound that really helps this album cross over nicely! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
SweetbottomAngels Of The Deep ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A tight set of fusion from Sweetbottom – an American combo who definitely seem to draw a lot from the rock-inspired Euro fusion sound of a few years before! There's also a bit of the PM Records vibe – from the Steve Grossman/Gene Perla camp – lots of sharp, fast changes in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grover Washington JrInside Moves ... LP
Elektra, 1984. Near Mint- ... $3.99
If there's anyone we trust with a fusion groove, it's the great Grover Washington – as Washington's 70s albums for Kudu are still the blueprint for mixing saxophone solos with electric jazzy backing – a rich legacy he continued strongly into later years! This early 80s set has ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
