Mustafa OzkentFunk Anatolian ... LP
Hammer Muzik, 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99 34.98
The long-overdue return of Mustafa Ozkent – the legendary Turkish guitarist who made some very mad music in the 70s! The style here is a contemporary take on Mustafa's classic records from back in the day – all instrumental, with a heavy focus on his sharp-edged guitar lines – always tuned and toned so that they've got a bit of an exotic vibe, and backed by a set of younger musicians to do a nice job of keeping things funky! Ozkent is very strongly in the lead on all numbers – starting things out, and filling the tunes with fuzzy freaky solos – while heavy drums and basslines keep things tight, on titles that include "Kasap", "Roman", "Ciftetelli", "Misket", "Bilezik", and "Karadeniz". (Rock, Global Grooves) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tsege Mariam GebruSpielt Eigene Komposition ... LP
Mississippi, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful set of solo piano work by Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou – pulled from one of the CDs in the Ethiopiques series of compilations, and probably the most delicately melodic material in the series! Pianist-composer Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou has an extraordinary personal history – she is a daughter of the heralded Ethiopian intellectual the Kentiba Guebrou, and lived many years as a nun who recorded rarely, and then only as a means to serve the poor. The solo piano compositions in this set were culled from rare albums recorded in the early 60s and 70s, plus a few later recordings from the early 90s. The music is gorgeous and difficult to describe – sweetly somber, melancholy, and befitting the solo performances. Titles include "Presentiment", "The Homeless Wanderer", "The Last Tears Of The Deceased", "Mad Man's Laughter", and "A Young Girl's Complaint". LP, Vinyl record album

Mississippi, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful set of solo piano work by Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou – probably the most delicately melodic material to date in the wonderful Ethiopiques series! Pianist-composer Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou has an extraordinary personal history. She is a daughter of the heralded Ethiopian intellectual the Kentiba Guebrou, and lived many years as a nun who recorded rarely, and then only as a means to serve the poor. The solo piano compositions in this set were culled from rare albums recorded in the early 60s and 70s, plus a few later recordings from the early 90s. The music is gorgeous and difficult to describe – sweetly somber, melancholy, and befitting the solo performances. It's another wholly unique, timeless collection of music in this essential series! Tracks include "Mother's Love", "Golgotha", "The Jordan River Song", "The Song Of Abayi", "The Garden Of Gethesemanie", and "Tenkoyu Why Feel Sorry".
