Jimi Lee/Mona Finnih & The SensationalsStroll In The Moonlight ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1980. New Copy ... $23.99
Jimi Lee is a hell of a studio talent here – as he handles all the arrangements and production, and also sets up load of sweet guitar lines that riff alongside the vocals of Mona Finnih & The Sensationals! That riffing guitar really gets things moving here – sometimes in a heavier funk mode, sometimes with a more laidback style that's almost Jamaican – and always with these nice currents that really work well with the dark-tinged vocals of the group. At some level, Mona fronting four male backup singers should feel like American soul – but the approach often comes across differently – maybe with some sing-song echoes of South African group modes, but also with kind of an offbeat vibe of its own. Titles include "Son Of Man", "I Love Myself", "People Of The World", "Thoughts Dedicated To Mama", and "A Stroll In The Moonlight". LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony JosephCaribbean Roots (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2016. New Copy ... $23.99
Anthony Joseph just keeps on getting better and better, and even more interesting with each new record – to a point where the already-hip singer is really blowing our mind with music like this! The songs are longer, richer, and more deeply put together than some of Joseph's earlier work – in a spirit that definitely lives up to the promise of the title, but which also shows a lot of post-colonial diaspora elements, too – the kind of qualities you might expect from Anthony's role in the contemporary Parisian scene! Joseph has an even more majestic quality than before – and stands perfectly at the helm of a diverse group of musicians who provide shifting currents of jazz and percussion in support of his vocal passages – which are both spoken and sung. Titles include "The Kora", "Mano A Mano", "Brother Davis", "Neckbone", "Drum Song", "Our History", "Powerful Peace", "Caribbean Roots", and "Jimmy Upon That Bridge".
