New Duke LumumbaJungle Funk ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
Do yourself a favor, and buy this album – you won't be disappointed! The record is a gem all the way through – a really unique mixture of LA soul jazz and African rhythms, with a sound that's almost like Hugh Masekela sitting in with the Jazz Crusaders! Of course, there's a lot of Jazz Crusaders in the set – as Wilton Felder plays electric bass on the album, giving it a fantastic loping groove – but there's also plenty of unique albums on the record, especially its way of approaching the rhythms with a sly, syncopated groove that's immediately infectious! Duke's trumpet solos are great, and they're augmented by tenor work by Chester Washington and trombone by George Bohannon – all nicely grooving on the album's brilliant blend of jazzy tracks. Titles include "Jungle Funk", "Afrikaloo", "Akagruge", "Like It Is", "Mafam", and "Peace Brother". Somebody put this one on CD – and do us all a treat! LP, Vinyl record album

Oscarmore OforiAfrika! ... LP
EMI (UK), 1971. Very Good+ .... $6.99
A lively set of highlife tracks – recorded in English, Twi, and Krobo by Oscarmore Ofori – Ghanian composer and singer. The album's got a bouncy, optimistic feel that's typical of 60s African recordings of this nature – but it hits a few darker notes that keep things interesting – especially on the track "African Retention", a driving, very percussive number that's unlike anything else on the record – and worth the price of the album alone! Other cuts include "I Have Been On The Road Too Long", "Fly Me Home", "Akwankwaa Hiani", and "Sanbra Fie". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing on Capitol. Cover has discoloration due to aging, and some wear.)

New VariousSurinam – Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors 1976 to 1983 ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really rare grooves from an incredibly obscure scene – and that's saying a lot, given how many global sounds have been circulating in recent years! The cuts here represent a unique outpouring of funky club styles from the nation of Surinam – tracks recorded by a handful of groups in the wake of their mid-70s independence – and as filled with as much joy and positive energy as you might imagine from such a political moment! The grooves are surprisingly great – upbeat funk, with lots of jazzy inflections – in a space that's somewhere between the sound of Fantasy Records in the mid 70s, and Capitol soul at the start of the 80s – tight, but never too slick – and as cool as it is classy. Lyrics are in English, and titles include "Sweet Dream" by Alwin Reingoud, "Groovy Weekend" and "Disco Party" by Erwin Bouterse & The Group Roetoe, "Try Try Try" and "You Are Gonna Miss Me" by Solat, "Funkin In Your Mind" and "Going Insane" by Sumy, "Here's To You" by Thunderstorm, and "Waiting For Your Love" by Usje Sukatma. LP, Vinyl record album
