Akira Ishikawa & Count BuffalosAfrican Rock ... CD
Dan/Clinck (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $29.99
Don't think "African rock", think spiritual jazz – as the set's a brilliant blend of the funky styles of Akira Ishikawa and his Count Buffalos combo with some deeper percussive elements that bring a whole new global sound to his music!

Javanese Court GamelanJavanese Court Gamelan Volume 2 ... CD
Nonesuch (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
Incredible sounds from Java – where the use of the gamelan is often somewhat more brooding, and slower-paced than in Bali – and the sounds flow out in these gentle waves that are completely hypnotic! The album is wonderfully recorded by Robert E Brown – one of his key gamelan ... read more CD

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1992. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
A really unique little record – a set of jazz reinterpretations of the style of biguine – that highly rhythmic mode from the French West Indies, which itself received a strong influx of jazz in the post-war years!

Berkely Ike JonesNation Building ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A mighty nice set from Berkely Ike Jones – guitarist and one of the founders of the legendary Blo – working here in a groove that's a bit more Afro disco overall, but which still has all the great touches of his previous work! The music's plenty funky, but more in a clubby way than ... read more CD

Juju (Oneness Of Juju)Chapter Two – Nia (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Strata East/Shout (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $24.99
The rare second album from Juju – the avant jazz collective who'd later morph into funk band Oneness Of Juju, but who still sound pretty revolutionary here! There's a bit more focus than before – still energy that's a lot like the best righteous jazz groups coming out of Chicago or St ... read more CD

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... $11.99
Very hip sounds from a very hip-looking cat – Cem Karaca, a Turkish contemporary of Baris Manco and Erkin Koray – heard here on a really great second album from the 70s! Some of the best cuts here mix in exotic Turkish roots with modern psychedelia – a sound that's set to vocals ... read more CD
