Joe Harriott Double QuintetIndo-Jazz Suite ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $8.99
A lost classic from reedman Joe Harriott – and a landmark blending of jazz and world music! The core of the group is that quintet of West Indian alto player Joe Harriott – one of the leading lights of the British jazz scene of the 60s, and a dedicated modernist who was as important to England as Ornette Coleman was to America. Harriott's group is expanded by the addition of John Mayer's quintet of Indian musicians, who play in tandem with Harriott's group in a swirling blend of styles and sounds. The sound is spacey and trippy, with more elements of Indian music, than of jazz, but Harriott still manages to get some nice playing in. The whole album is one long suite of tracks, and titles include "Contrasts", "Raga Megha", and "Raga Gaud-Saranga". (Jazz, Global Grooves) CD

Arnaldo Antunes, Edgard Scandura & Toumani DiabateA Curva Da Cintura (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Rosa Celeste (Brazil), 2011. Used ... $18.99
One of the coolest records in years from the always-creative Arnaldo Antunes – a trio effort that has him working with Toumani Diabate and Edgard Scandurra – in a pan-Atlantic set of sounds that's really amazing! Antunes' creative approach to songwriting is very much in place – but it's also inflected by an earthier element than before, given the presence of the two other artists – kora and percussion from Diabate, and some great acoustic guitar from Scandurra – both of which really warm up the tunes, and help unlock a whole new side of Arnaldo's vocals! The album was recorded both in Mali and Brazil – with results that definitely show that blend – and titles include "A Curva Da Cintura", "Cara", "Um Senhor", "Psiu", "Ce Sabe Como E", "Ir Mao", "Kaira", and "Grao De Chaos". Also features some great bonus tracks too – written by Diabate and Scandurra. Not even the MTV logo on the front can take away our enthusiasm for the record! (Brazil, Global Grooves) CD

Manu DibangoChoc N Soul – 1978 to 1989 Sessions ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Overlooked work from the mighty Manu Dibango – material that comes after his first initial wave of hits in the 70s – and which shows that he was still going strongly in pursuit of a groove! Some of the cuts here have a more contemporary clubby rework of his Cameroon roots, while others showcase his growing presence in the Parisian scene, and his love of the sounds of Kingston as well – a trans-Atlantic criss-crossing of styles that allows even more spaces for Dibango to blow his soulful horn – yet almost always in ways that are still pretty darn funky! Titles include "Choc N Soul", "Reggae Makossa", "Mounca Pola", "Night Jet", "Waka Juju", "Minuit Au Circuit", "Happy Feeling", and "Ca Va Chouia". CD

✨✧ VariousRough Guide To Latin Rare Groove (180 gram vinyl – with download) (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Rough Guide, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wicked little set that really gets at the way that Latin record collecting has moved way past the usual sounds from New York, Puerto Rico, and Cuba – to embrace a whole host of styles from around the globe! In a world of collections that feature oft-reissued numbers from the Fania catalog, this set goes way further to dig up a whole host of gems from north and south of the border – and even a few from the other side of the Atlantic as well – mostly older numbers, but also including a few contemporary cuts that fit well alongside the vintage numbers. Pablo Yglesias handled the track selection, with the same quality he brings to other Latin projects too – and titles include "Bamba Cure" by Mario Allison, "No Pago Na" by Alfredo Gutierrez, "Esa Mujer" by Los Kenya, "Denisth" by Grupo 2000, "Funky Tumbao" by Setenta, "My Shingaling Boy" by Spanglish Fly, "Domingo Por La Manana" by Carlos Pickling, "Black Shadow" by Orchestra Dee Jay, "Pensamiento" by Piper Pimienta, "Do You Want To Be Free" by Gilberto Sextet, and "Chevere" by Joe Quijana.
