New VariousLondon Is The Place For Me Vol 5 – Latin, Jazz, Calypso, & Highlife From Young Black London ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
London's always been one of the hippest cities in the world – but back during the postwar years, there was an especially wonderful outpouring of music on the scene – a rich array of new sounds and styles pulled from around the globe – as so many residents from crumbling British empire came to live in the UK! Musicians and listeners arrived in London with plenty of cultural baggage on hand – influences from the Caribbean, West Africa, and India too – plus other smaller scenes that once fell under the British banner, all now the fuel for the cultural fire that was happening in England! The title here tells plenty about the music being made in this newly-formed scene – bits of African highlife, Jamaican calypso, American jazz, Cuban Latin, and more – all filtered into the modernism of the 50s, and given a new twist that was decidedly urban as well. The package may well be the most impressive so far in this legendary series – and is certainly the one that moves the farthest past any sort of easy expectations or cultural conventions. Titles include "Women Police In England" by Mighty Terror, "My Sorrow" by West African Swing Stars, "Cricket Umpires" by Lord Kitchener, "Jordhu" by Caribbean Swing Band, "Trumpet Highlife" by Shake Keane, "Calypso Mambo" by George Browne, "Cuban Nightingale" by Buddy Pipp's Highlifers, "Kitch" by The Quavers, "Tabu" by Mona Baptiste, and "King Jimmy Foo Foo" by Tejan Sie with The West African Rhythm Brothers.

New Joseph KabaseleLe Grand Kalle – His Life His Music (2CDs & book) ... CD
Sterns, 1950s/1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An amazing tribute to the legendary Joseph Kabasele – easily one of the most influential forces in music from the Congo – and the bandleader who first introduced Manu Dibango and Tabu Ley Rocherau to the world! The package is beautiful – a heavy book-style cover with over 100 pages of notes and full color images – the history of Kabasele in both English and French, which is also the history of African music of the time, too – especially during the 50s and 60s period covered by the music on the set's 2CDs. Sterns always does a great job with their collections, but this one really takes it to the next level – a wonderful mix of history and music, with a whopping 38 tracks that include "African Jazz", "Table Ronde", "Tembe Nye", "Baila", "Mindule Mipanzana", "Jolie Nana", "Nzambe E Mungu", "Biwela Biwela", "BB 69", and "Mokili Zala Ata Juste".
