Banda Black RioMaria Fumaca/Mr Funky Samba ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $11.99
Two fantastic funky cuts from this legendary Brazilian group! "Maria Fumaca" has fast-changing funky jazz rhythms that are completely outta sight – almost more a 70s Bay Area jazz funk groove overall, complete with great horns and keyboards! "Mr Funky Samba" is another great instrumental – and is maybe a lot more funk than samba – with excellent trombone work that would make Wayne Henderson blush! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Black Belt SymphonyBrotherman/Geronimo Pratt ... 7-inch
Jazzaggression (Estonia), 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic spiritual jazz from the west coast scene of the early 80s – two tracks that have a vibe that reminds us a lot of Oneness Of Juju on their first few records, but with maybe an even headier vibe overall! The songs were both written by Somaya Peaches Moore-Khaliq – who plays keyboard, autoharp, and sings – the last with this very righteous, political style that's very powerful – and which gets great accompaniment from a lineup that includes Fuasi Abdul Khaliq on tenor, Louie Mbiki Spears on bass, and Nirankar Sing Khalsa on drums – plus additional percussion from Sekou Ali and Akin Davis. Both cuts are great – and feel like lost work from the LA Underground! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Quetcy Alma/CafeOh Poor Me/Identify Yourself ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
Quetcy Alma's got a name you might find tricky to pronounce – but that's hardly going to matter once you hear the groove in this tune – a bumping, loping style that almost more late 60s Latin soul than you'd guess from the date – and which makes a nicely odd mix with Alma's dramatic vocal style! Cafe are more of a Latin funk group – and work with some great jazzy horns on "Identify Yourself" – a cut that feels like it would be right at home on some blacksploitation soundtrack! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Scott Cunningham BandMorning Madness/Uncontrolled ... 7-inch
Black Horse/Tramp (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $4.99
A nice little cut in the Praise Poems mode – a bit jazzy, a bit funky, and with these righteous blue-eyed soul vocals from Scott Cunningham – which are punctuated by some great jazzy solos on flute and tenor sax! "Uncontrolled" is also jazzy, but in a more upbeat and groovy way – guitar wrapped around the congas in the grooves, peppered with piano notes, and a sweet chorus singing very lightly underneath Scott's lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Marcio Lott/Silvio CesarTema De Baby/A Festa ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A warm jazzy number from Marcio Lott – a singer who works here with a great little groove that's got a tight bassy bottom, sweet wah wah guitar in the middle, and a cool female chorus on the top – all in this funky soul mode that reminds us of the grooviest work we've heard from Marcos Valle! The flipside features an even funkier number from Silvio Cesar – the great "A Festa", which mixes a Banda Black Rio-styled groove with cool keyboard lines, and these deep vocals from Silvio himself! 7-inch, Vinyl record
