Randy WestonUhuru Afrika/Highlife ... CD
Roulette/Capitol, 1960/1963. Used ... $12.99
Incredible work by Randy Weston – light years ahead of his trio material from just a few years before! The album is one of his most progressive from the early years, and features an extended suite dedicated to the newly-won freedoms of the African Nations – with occasional lyrics by Langston Hughes, and arrangements by the great Melba Liston! The material's political, radical, and modernist – but it never fails to groove, and uses its politics to achieve an added emotional punch, as in the best work from the same time by Max Roach and Charles Mingus – and some of their larger progressive projects. The group is much larger than you'd expect from Randy – with Benny Bailey and Richard Williams on trumpets, Slide Hampton on trombone, Sahib Shihab on reeds, and Candido and Olatunji on percussion – which really dominates the record. The whole thing is amazing – one of the purest realizations of the African influence in Weston's music – and movements of the suite are entitled "Uhuru Kwanza", "African Lady", "Bantu", and "Kucheza Blues" (Jazz, Global Grooves) CD
(Out of print.)

Tak ShindoMganga! ... CD
Edison/Modern Harmonic, 1958. Used ... $6.99
A fantastic bit exotica from Tak Shindo – quite rootsy at times, in a way that really lives up to the cover – and which makes the whole thing a lot more striking than Shindo's other big album on Capitol at the time! The instrumentation is filled with heavy percussion and rhythms, often recorded with a lot of echo – and peppered with these chanting vocals that are totally great – much moodier than more mainstream exotica. Imagine Les Baxter going deeper into the jungle – and you've got a good idea of the vibe here – as the instrumentation goes way beyond mere "primitive sounds" – with some Latin jazz inspiration and other global accents seamlessly working their way into a richly-layered sound! Titles include "Mombasa Love Song", "Nyoba Festival", "Slave Chains of Mtumwa", "Mganga", "Watusi Drum Dance", and "Port of Trinkitat". (Now Sound, Global Grooves) CD
