✨✧ VariousPoco Loco In The Coco Vol 4 ... LP
University Of Vice (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
This series keeps on getting weirder and wilder as the volumes march on – so much so, that we almost have trouble figuring out where to put it in our racks! Some of these tunes are definitely Latin or tropical, but others have a more romping, rocking vibe – kind of a mad electrified reworking of global elements, often given a raw and raunchy sound! It's that mixed-up quality that makes the record – and the series – so great – and titles include "Chi Chi Wow" by Teddy Martin, "Abdul The Cool" by Abdul Alexi Freeman, "Brutus" by Billy Nash, "Cha Cha Bebop" by Los Abinos, "Shufflin The Volga" by Dany Maurice, "Dragon Walk" by Johny's Guitar, "Mah Jong" by Jack Ary, and "Sesamo Abrete" by Rosendo Ruiz.

Manu DibangoAfrican Woodoo ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Some of the coolest work we've ever heard from the legendary Manu Dibango – sound library recordings done right around the same time as his "Soul Makossa" hit, and with an equally funky groove! The music often has Manu's sax in the lead, alongside larger orchestrations that have a soundtrack/sound library funk sort of approach – tight, but never slick – and a perfect foil for solos, especially considering that some of the music here was recorded in New York – with work from Cedar Walton on keyboards, Buster Williams on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! The whole thing's great – a whole new side of Dibango's genius, appearing here for the first time ever – and titles include "Lagos Go Slow", "Du Bush A Bush", "Walking To Waza". "Blowin' Western Mind", "Motapo", "Groovy Flute", "African Pop Session", "Coco In Central Park", "Aphrodite Shake", and "New Wood". CD

OchoOcho 1 ... LP
United Artists, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The rare first album by Ocho – and a killer batch of Latin tracks that breaks down all definitions of the music! Ocho were a seminal group in the NuYorica scene of the early 70s – blending soul, funk, Latin, jazz, and other styles into a groove that was perhaps a bit too complicated for the audiences of their time, which might be why they're only finally getting their due these days. This first record's excellent all the way through – with loads of great little numbers like "Flautira", "Undress My Mind", "Coco May May", "Suena Tu Bongo", "Que Pelota", and "Oriza". There's a great mix of electric piano, percussion, vibes, and some pretty sharp work on tenor and flute! (Latin, Global Grooves) LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGoombay – Music From The Bahamas 1951 to 1959 ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), 1950s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A very cool collection of 50s goombay work from the Bahamas – a musical mode that's a bit like the mento and calypso of the time – kind of a fusion of island rhythms with more modern postwar jazzy styles! Some of these tracks have rhythm lines that are almost Afro-Cuban at the core – touched with tight percussion, lively piano, and other instrumentation – often topped with vocals that have the same playful vibe as more familiar calypso. Titles include "Coconut Woman" by Freddie Munnings, "Goombay" by George Symonette, "Bullfrog Dressed In Soldier's Clothes" by Delbon Johnson, "La Cruz" by Andre Toussaint, "Uncle Joe Gimme Mo" by Vincent Martin, "Digby" by Freddie Munnings, "Goombay Rock" by Blind Blake, and "Sly Mongoose" by Delbon JOhnson. LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a nice insert of notes, too!)

✨✧ AssagaiAssagai ... LP
Vertigo, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of UK Afro-Funk – recorded at the beginning of the 70s by a group that included members of the legendary South African jazz combo The Blue Notes – Dudu Pukwana on reeds, Mongezi Feza on trumpet, and Louis Moholo on drums! The record's quite different than you'd guess from those players – thanks to some kickass help from the rest of the group – who really push things into a tripped-out version of Afro Funk – a bit in the mode of Demon Fuzz at the time – a group who also lent a member to this project! There's some great horn work on the record – with the kind of "out" soloing you might expect from the group, laid out over heavy drums and good bass-heavy funk – on titles that include "Hey Jude", "Irin Ajolaway", "Akasa", "Telephone Girl", "Beka", and "Cocoa". LP, Vinyl record album
