VariousGhana Soundz 2 – Afro-beat, Funk & Fusion In 70's Ghana ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. Used .... $9.99
Mindblowing funk from 70s Africa – a collection that's overflowing with great rare bits! If you ever thought that the sound of Afro Funk was just Fela, Tony Allen, and Manu Dibango – think again, because this set will really expand your horizons! The package was expertly selected, compiled, and annotated by Afro Funk DJ Miles Cleret – a man who really knows his stuff, and who's spent most of his adult life tracking down obscure bits from all corners of the dark continent. This set focuses on funk grooves from the vastly-undocumented Ghana scene – and it's honestly one of the best collections of Afro Funk we've ever heard – smoking and heavy from bottom to top, and filled with great music that we never would have caught otherwise! An instant treasure – and with tracks that include "Africa Is Home" by Joe Mensah, "Atwer Abroba" by Ebo Taylor, "Disco Africa" by Ogyatanaa Show Band, "Tamfo Nyi Ekyir" by Apagaya Show Band, "Kye Kye Pe Aware" by The Sweet Talks, "Mondo Soul Funky" by Ebo Taylor & Wuta Wazuri, "Samarin Bolga" by Uppers Chapter 2, "No Condition Is Permanent" by Marijata, and "Agbadza" by Uhuru Dance Band.

Jankowski SingersFor Night People Only (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MPS/Jazzclub (Germany), 1970. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
Moody vocals from the Jankowski Singers – a hip ensemble led by pianist Horst Jankowski, with a floating dreamy sound that's very much in the best MPS easy mode! The tracks on the set are as haunting as the "nightpeople" in the title might imply – harmonic, yet slightly off-kilter – and easy, yet with an undercurrent of 70s slink that makes everything feel a bit stranger than it otherwise might. The title track – "Nightpeople Only" – is a real gem, and worth the price of the record alone – but the rest of the set is pretty wonderful too, with a cool blend of male/female chorus vocals, Jankowski's piano and keyboards, and some sweetly compressed flugelhorn solos from Ack Van Rooyen. Other tracks include "Didn't We", "Let's Make A Day", "With Two Eyes", "Light My Fire", and "Lady Eve". CD also features lots of bonus tracks too – 9 more numbers that include "Heideroslein", "Ach Wie Ist's Moglich Dann", "Dreamflight", "Pink Balloon", "So Wie Heut", "Like A Ruby In The Street", and "Du Du Liegst Mir Im Herzen".

New Ian Carr & Don RendellShades Of Blue/Dusk Fire ... CD
BGO (UK), 1964/1966. Used 2CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest British jazz of the 60s – two early albums by the groundbreaking Ian Carr/Don Rendell quintet! Carr was a trumpeter and Rendell was a saxophonist – and together, the pair led a group that had an amazing flair for tones, colors, and interesting rhythmic progressions – picking up on the modal and exotic influences that were bubbling under in the British scene of the time, especially in work of players like Joe Harriott and Michael Garrick – but putting things together with a groove that was a bit more straight ahead, and inflected by the soulful lyricism of Blue Note artists like Horace Silver and Art Blakey! Both albums are tremendous – rich and under-discovered jazz territory, and overflowing with incredible original compositions that will make the set one of the freshest jazz CDs you purchase this year! Titles include "Latin Blue", "Just Blue", "Garrison 64", "Tan Samfu", "Jubal", "Dusk Fire", "Spooks", and "Ruth". CD
