Elements was an American jazz fusion ensemble founded by bass guitarist Mark Egan and drummer Danny Gottlieb in 1982. Both Egan and Gottlieb were former members of the Pat Metheny Group, and Elements' sound draws deeply from their experience as Metheny's former rhythm section. Band members included Bill Evans, Gil Goldstein, Steve Khan and Clifford Carter.[1]

They released albums from 1982 to 1996 on labels including Novus and Antilles.[2]
