Prestige, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible! This is a stunning set of African-inspired jazzy percussion tracks – similar to some of the work done by Art Blakey on his Orgy In Rhythm albums, but with a lot better horn work, and with an overall conception that's much more unified!

Mammane SaniTaaritt ... LP
Sahel Sounds, Mid 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
Sweet electric keyboards from Mamman Sani Abdoulaye – recorded in both Niger and Paris, on a host of cool keys with a very spacey vibe!

SookieSookie ... LP
Disques D'Esperance/African Road Trip (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $24.99

Matsuli (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
A tremendous bit of South African jazz – recorded in the years after bigger names like Hugh Masekela and The Blue Notes had left for greener pastures, but when there were still plenty of great artists back at home!

Soundway (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Dexter Story is a very cool singer with a sound that's almost impossible to describe in words – this hip fusion of global elements and cosmic spirit – one that's echoed by the slight Ethiopian style of the font on the cover, and the album's placement on the Soundway label – and ...

Gapophone/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
Really righteous sounds from the great Ebo Taylor – on a record that almost seems to show a bit of Jamaican or Caribbean influence on the rhythms, especially in the way the long tracks go tripping along lightly as the vocals and instrumentation unfold!
