Sterns, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Hardly the kind of group you'd hear in an American motel during the 70s – no cheesy lounge jazz here – and instead, a crucially important group on the West African scene, with great vocals by a young Salif Keita!

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!

Baris MancoYeni Bir Gun ... LP
Guerssen (Spain), 1979. New Copy Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An overlooked late 70s album from the great Baris Manco – one that has the Turkish experimentalist unlocking even more strange corners of his music – finding a new way to combine eastern and western elements in his sound! The album's every bit as edgey and compelling as Manco's earlier ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A non-stop funky party from CK Mann – and a set that definitely lives up to its title!

Casablanca, 1976. Very Good- ... $1.99
A later album from Hugh Masekela – but still plenty darn hip, way more so than most of the other artists on the Casablanca label at the time!

New Hugh MasekelaHugh Masekela ... LP
Wing, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Great early work from Hugh Masekela! The record features all instrumental tracks – all short, and with Hugh's funky South African trumpet rolling over the top!

President (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $8.99
Hard funky soul with an Afrobeat backbone from Matata – who arrived on the London scene (via Kenya) in the mid 70s! Matata leaned mightily on the JBs for their groove, and laid out a heavy, rock solid variation on JBs funk with an African percussion base of congas and bongos at the core! ... read more CD
