Jali Nyama SusoKora Music From Gambia ... CD
FMP (Germany), 1984. New Copy ... Late February, 2015 (delayed)
An unusual world music session from the FMP label – one of their few forays into the format, and one that's recorded with the same sense of creativity as their avant jazz sessions! The album features solo kora and voice from Jali Nyama Suso – working here in an unfettered setting that's really wonderful – one that lets his beautifully melodic work on the strings of the kora ring out alongside deeply personal, almost bluesy vocals with a really haunting quality. The set's a spare one, but filled with feeling – and titles include "Jula Dekaray", "Alpha Yaya", "Maley Sajo", "Dembo", "N'Dambung Saleya", "Korina Julo", "Maley Sajo", and "Jali Nyama". CD

✨✧ VariousSoul Safari Presents Township Jive & Kwela Jazz Vol 3 ... CD
Ubuntu (Netherlands), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe our favorite volume so far in this excellent series – a set that focuses on early 60s work from South Africa, with a vibe that really showcases that great sound that would soon explode globally – as artists like Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba got wider exposure! Yet the music here is hardly as commercial as sounds from those two – as the overall production and presentation is nice and rootsy – lively rhythms topped with jazzy instrumentation and these especially wonderful vocals that dip, turn, soar, and fly – all at a level that would become cliche in the world music boom decades later, but which still sounds beautiful here at the roots. All tracks were hand-picked from the archives of the International Library Of African Music – and titles include "Nylon" and "Intogeymy" by The Lower Buttons, "Seven Stiches" and "Rock Phata 1001" by Kid Ma Wrong Wrong, "Lulu Part 4" by Bra Sello, "Mangothobane" and "Wamuhle Lomfana" by Flying Jazz Queens, "Kudala Ngizula" by Cowboy Superman & His Cowboy Sisters, and "Nice Time" by Que Sisters.
