Baris Manco & Kurtalan EkspresSozum Meclisten Disari ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1981. New Copy Gatefold ... $25.99
One of the funkiest, most electric records we've heard from Turkish pop genius Baris Manco – a set recorded at the start of the 80s, but one that's got much more of a 70s vibe overall! There's some especially great keyboards and basslines here – elements that are more in the forefront ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MandingoWatto Sitta ... CD
Terrascape, 1984. Used ... $2.99
80s electro Afro grooving from Mandingo – not to be confused with the UK group who recorded electronic exotic albums in the 70s – but one of the New Africa crossover projects on Celluloid, recorded during their brief period of colonial expansion! The group mixes together traditional ... read more CD

Albert MangelsdorffNow Jazz Ramwong – The Albert Mangelsdorff Quintet In Asia ... LP
CBS/Be! (Germany), 1964. New Copy Tri-fold (reissue)... $24.99
Brilliant modern jazz from German trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff – recording here in 1964, but sounding years ahead of his time, with an amazing a blend of jazz and Asian styles! The album's one of Mangelsdorff's best ever – a set of rhythmic tunes that seem clearly informed by the ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

MarijataPat Thomas Introduces Marijata ... LP
Academy, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of the coolest albums to come from the Ghana scene in the 70s – served up by a group who's equally well-skilled at many ends of the musical spectrum! At one level, Marijata come on like a heavy funk act – lots of fuzz on the guitar, fierce drums at the bottom, and tight jazzy horns ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hugh MasekelaHugh Masekela's Next Album ... LP
MGM, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of Hugh's more poppy efforts, but still a nice batch of instrumentals with a good Afro soul groove to them, and the jaunty trumpet sound that was Hugh's stock in trade at the time. Tracks include "Actin' Like A Fool", "If I Needed Someone", "Sounds Of Silence", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Master Musicians Of JavaJasmine Isle – Javanese Gamelan Music ... CD
Nonesuch (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $9.99
Tuned drums, chimes, gongs, and xylophone – all played together in this slow-building, hypnotic way that stands as one of the most perfect records we've ever heard of Javanese gamelan! The music is quite spare, despite the size of the ensemble – as the timing of the players is perfect ... read more CD

MatataFeelin' Funky ... CD
President (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $6.99
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

M'BaminaExperimental ... LP
Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A set that's a lot more funky than you'd guess from its "experimental" title – a record that's right on the money, in a sweet blend of late 70s Afro Funk styles! The group have a tightness that's maybe more West Africa via Paris than some of the sounds from back on the continent ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jazzman (UK), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A seminal set from the South African jazz scene of the early 60s – recorded by pianist Chris McGregor before he and the Blue Notes emigrated to the UK – and a stunning example of the new sounds that were coming forth at the time!

Yehudi Menuhin & Ravi ShankarWest Meets East ... LP
Angel, 1966. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Mostly "east" – as the violin of the famous solist comes into play with the sitar of Ravi Shankar, plus tabla and tanpura! The vibe's a bit like some of the best John Mayer albums, although less jazz. LP, Vinyl record album
