Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of BreathCountry Cooking ... CD
Virgin, 1998. Used ... $9.99
One of the few later recordings by Chris McGregor's Brotherhood of Breath – and one that was done for a major label, and almost marketed as a world music album! Despite that fact, though, the set's still very firmly in McGregor's jazzy mode of the past – yet also certainly touched by ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

MebusasBlood Brothers ... CD
Academy, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautiful grooves from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – a set of really unique grooves, and the only-ever album from the enigmatic Mebusas! There's kind of a tripped-out feel to some of these tracks – Afro Funk, but taken left of center from the style of Fela – thanks to some ... read more CD

Hailu MergiaHailu Mergia & His Classical Instrument – Shemonmanaye (with download) ... LP
Awesome Tapes From Africa, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 23.99
An incredible blend of sounds and styles – and one of the most enigmatic albums we've ever heard from the Ethiopian scene! Hailu Mergia plays alone here – but uses lots of overdubbing to layer together Fender Rhodes, accordion solos, and a rhythm machine – all mixed up in ways ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hailu Mergia & Dahlak BandWede Harer Guzo ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99 14.98
Maybe the coolest music we've ever heard from Ethiopian keyboard legend Hailu Mergia – a late 70s session that has his organ lines sounding even groovier than ever, on some sweet tracks that also bring in a fair bit of funk to the grooves! The style is much more in an Ethiopiques vein than ... read more CD

Mighty FlamesMetalik Funk Band ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
The Mighty Flames never sound too metallic here – at least not in any way that's cold or harsh, or heavy metal too! Instead, these guys have a warm groove that's on the tighter side of African funk – that point when the sound was getting a stronger influence from American soul and club ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MokshaBeauty Of An Arbitrary Moment ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
Not the same Moksha that you might know from the Swedish jazz scene of a decade ago – but instead a very cool Norwegian trio who blend together a range of different colors from guitar, voice, and some very cool global elements – including tablas, djembe, dhol, and darbuka! The approach ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

Spiegelei/Sonorama (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A sublime blend of spiritual jazz and African rhythms – and one of the few 70s recordings made by Mombasa, a European group put together by LA trombonist Lou Blackburn! The record's got a much more righteous sound than any of Blackburn's work of the 60s – a boldness and sense of pride ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Harry MoscoCountry Boy ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
Sweet grooves from Harry Mosco – once the leader of The Funkees, but stepping out here with some wicked work from the London scene at the end of the 70s! The album's got a snapping electric vibe – sometimes clubby, but with more of a funk feel overall – thanks to some heavy ... read more CD
