✨✧ Les Vikings De La GuadeloupeBest Of Les Vikings De La Guadeloupe 1966 to 2016 ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Not the kind of Vikings you'd find in medieval Scandinavia – and instead a landmark combo from Guadeloupe – one who were key in developing the sound of zouk in the late 70s, and who can also work with a fair bit of spiritual jazz touches in their music! This excellent collection shines the spotlight on the best vintage years of the group – and pulls together tracks from a number of hard-to-find indie recordings – often with an ear towards the kind of spiritual, jazzy currents that are often featured on other material from the Heavenly Sweetness label! Complicated rhythms mix with amazing horn passages – and although the music does have some vocals, there's often as much of a focus on instrumental moments too – which have a sharpness that's quite different than some of the brighter, more commercial strands of Caribbean music. The work of The Vikings is key in showing why Guadeloupe's always been a very special scene amidst the island cultures – one that often shared a close relationship with sounds in Paris, but also picked up elements from the US and Cuba as well. Titles include "Ahi Na Ma", "Let's Stay Up Vikings", "Rumbo Melon", "Ambiance Vikings", "Retour Au Pays", "Souvenirs", "Magdalena", and "Claro Que Si". CD

VariousAgrim Agadez – Musique Guitare De La Republique Du Niger ... LP
Sahel Sounds/Mississippi, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
A beautiful collection of contemporary guitar work from Niger – as you might guess from the title – mostly songs in an acoustic mode, and captured in a very spare setting that really lets you hear the inflections of the different musicians! Some of this work echoes a west African blues tradition, other tunes are more folksy – and the few numbers with an electric guitar have a quality that's maybe a bit more linked to Tuareg modes. The package is one of the more beautiful we've ever seen from Sahel Sounds – and also comes with a well-done booklet that features plenty of notes on each artist. Titles include "Migrid Nou Hawan" by Fatou Seidi Ghali, "C'Est La Vie" by Mohamed Karzo, "Hey Joe" by Anza D L'Ader, "Anashua" by John Safokoley, "Imouhagh Siwlat" by Ahmed Ag Kaedi, and "Agrim Agadez" by Etran D L'Air.

✨✧ VariousZanzibara 4 – Bi Kidude (La Memoire De La Musique Zanzibaraise) ... CD
Buda (France), 2006. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mostly recent recordings by Bi Kidude – billed here as "the diva of Zanzibari music", and supported by a great set of material that certainly helps her live up to this title! Kidude sings in a haunting, almost ancient kind of way – very thin-voiced, but powerful – often snaking over instrumentation that includes accordion, keyboards, violins, and a host of Zanzibari instruments. As with other titles in the series, the package and presentation are a godsent to the uninitiated – with full notes on both Kidude and the music, as well as a bit of cultural history on Zanzibari music. Titles include "Msondo", "Jua Toka", "Ya Laiti", "Suhuba Ya Dai", "Pakistani", "Alaminadura", "Beru", and "Khaifu". CD

✨✧ VariousZanzibara 5 – Hot In Dar – Le Son De La Tanzanie 1978 to 1983 ... CD
Buda (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite entries so far in the Zanzibara series – a great set of grooves from the late 70s and early 80s – warmly laidback material, with a bubbling undercurrent of funk, and a sound that's somewhat different from other African material we've heard from the time! The rhythms often dip and turn slowly – almost with a watery feel, as the basslines groove up and down in midtempo waves of sound – often woven together with some tighter guitar parts, which also dance along nicely – topped by vocals that have a sweet undercurrent of sadness, too. The package is a great way to sample some of these lesser-heard gems – and it's put together with the same level of care you'd expect from Buda's Ethiopiques series. Titles include "Uzuri Wa Asili", "Baba Anna", "Rufani Ya Kifo", and "Mwana Acha Ujinga" by Dar International Orchestre; "Talaka Ya Hasira", "Nawashukuru Wazazi Wangu", "Taxi Driver", and "Kassim Amefilisika" by Mlimani Park Orchestra; and "Nilitaka Iwe Siri" by Vijana Dance Band.

✨✧ VariousAlbum D'Or De La Biguine 1966 to 1972 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1966/1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful document of the very special sound of biguine – that beautiful blend of jazz, Latin, and other elements that flourished only in Guadeloupe, and hit an especially strong sound in the 60s – presented here in a collection of work by two different excellent groups! The bulk of the collection features 1966 material from Orchestra Traditionnelle De La Guadeloupe – a killer combo that features the might Alain Jean Marie on piano – a player who has this way of being both lyrical and rhythmic at the same time, soaring out alongside excellent work on clarinet and soprano sax from Robert Mavouzny, whose exotic lines really add a lot to the music. Mavouzny sings on two tracks in French, and Manuela Pioche sings on a few others – and the music has a strongly percussive bottom, with lots of nice congas in the mix. Titles include "Guadeloupe An Nous", "Ce Biguine", "Ninon", "Serpent Maigre", "Mon Automobile", "Touloulou", and "Chauffe Biguine La". Next up are four tracks by Ensemble De Quadrille Guadeloupeen – a much more traditional combo, even though recorded here in 1972 – and working with a highly percussive groove at the bottom, augmented by these cyclical lines on violin and guitar, and some nicely strong bass as well. Titles include "L'Ete", "Pantalon", "La Poule", and "Pastourelle". CD

✨✧ VariousRough Guide To Peru Rare Groove ... CD
Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet sounds from the Peruvian scene of the 60s and 70s – music that starts in more familiar Latin modes, then quickly expands to a range of other hip South American sounds! The mix of modes here is maybe similar to the Colombian music of the period – sometimes romping with fast-moving rhythms, sometimes a bit more complicated, in ways that really unlock the jazzier sides of the instrumentation – and which echo some of our favorite New York work of the time. There's a few organ-heavy tracks that are especially great – and the package is put together by Pablo Yglesias, who's done some other great sets of this nature. Titles include "Lamparita" by Los Compadres Del Ande, "Lluvia Con Nieve/El Molestoso" by Carlos Pickling Y Su Organo Espacial, "Lobos Al Escape" by Andres De Colbert Y Su Orquesta, "La Palmadita" by Los Blacanguay, "Son Con Boogaloo" by Pedro Miguel Y Sus Maracaibos, "Tambores De La Selva" by Juaneco Y Su Combo, and "Nuestro Pobreza" by Chacal Y Sus Estrellas.

✨✧ VariousSurinam Funk Force – More Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors ... CD
Rush Hour (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A huge range of funky soul cuts from a very surprising source – the nation of Surinam, which didn't earn its independence until the mid 70s – which then seemed to pave the way for a big wave of wonderful music like this! The cuts often have a groove that's more northern hemisphere club than you'd expect from the nation's South American locale – and given that the nation was previously under the control of the Dutch, there's a lot of back/forth action here with European sounds, styles, and studios – which results in some great grooves that have a really unique hybrid in their approach! Rhythms are strong, but never too slick – never totally polished, as in a Euro disco mode – and instead maybe feel like some of the best underground New York material of the period – especially the sort that was drawing influence from communities of new immigrants. Some tracks have straightforward vocals, others have more of a group chant vibe – and most cuts have at least one key jazzy element, which really sharpens up the sound. Titles include "Happines" by Errol De La Fuente, "Born To Boogie" by Steve Watson, "Craziest" by Sonny Khoeblal, "The Funky G" by Sumy, "Love Dance" by Eddie Tailor, "Kaseko Attack" by Ronald Snijders, "Jamasa Roro" by Astaria, "Tirsa Song" by Sound Track Orchestra & Silvy, "Jhoom Le" by Cyntia, "Freedom Is The Thing" by Langa Langa, and "Jammin With The Jam Band" by Jam Band 80.

✨✧ VariousVenezuela 70 – Cosmic Visions Of A Latin American Earth – Venezuelan Experimental Rock In The 1970s (with bonus download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A completely amazing collection of sounds from the 70s scene in Venezuela – a really un-tapped legacy of fantastically creative music – most of it pretty darn groovy, too! Despite the "rock" in the title, the music here is more in a mix of funky jazz and other creative instrumental styles – a bit of Latin in some of the rhythms, some spiritual currents at other points, and a really rich blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation, with some other offbeat touches too! The music is almost more on the farther side of the spectrum from creative Latin combos in New York or LA at the time – not salsa, but with some salsa currents – not Chicano rock, but with some of those elements too – and maybe some of the better touches of the most experimental groups in Havana, the few who were reaching for a new style at the time. Venezuela was riding high on oil money at the time of these recordings – and there's definitely a sense of creativity for its own sake going on here – especially in some of the more electric moments, which reflect elements we really never would have expected. As always with Soul Jazz, the package is as great as the music – a mini-history lesson in itself – and titles include "Irene" by Aldemaro Romero Y Su Onda Nueva, "Dame De Comer" by Miguel Angel Fuster, "Amor En Llamas" by Pablo Schneider, "Aragueney" by Vytas Brenner, "Joropo No 1" by Grupo CIM, "Panico A Las 5am" by Angel Rada, "San Juan Tambo Y Fuera" by Un Dos Tres Y Fuera, "Ayudame A Encontrar Mi Camino" by Apocalipsis, and "Barcos De Pape" by Fernando Yvosky.

Girma Beyene & Akale WubeEthiopiques Volume 30 – Mistakes On Purpose ... CD
Buda (France), 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
A fantastic contemporary performance from Girma Beyene – a key artist in the golden age of Ethiopian, working here with the excellent Akale Wube quintet! Girma's one of a number of singers who went into exile during the changing political climate of the 70s – but in recent years, he's returned to his homeland, and has really reaffirmed his role in music – coming across here with a sound that's maybe even deeper and more sophisticated than his earlier recordings, and somewhat jazzier too! The group have a nicely understated approach – classic Ethiopian jazz and funk modes, but never overdone – so that when Girma slides into the groove, he really gets the right sort of space – which allows for some especially great presentation of his amazing vocals. Yet the set's also got some great instrumental tracks, too – long numbers that really make a great showcase for the saxophone work of Etienne De La Sayette and trumpet of Paul Bouclier. Florian Pellissier guests on organ on three tracks, and Fender Rhodes on one more – and titles include "Bemelkesh Aydelem", "Ene Negn Bay Manesh", "Enken Yelelebesh", "Melewetsesh Menew", "Wub Nat", and "Meslogn Neber".

Manu DibangoCeddo – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
One of the coolest 70s albums from the mighty Manu Dibango – a rare soundtrack that's done with an even greater variety of sounds than his more conventional albums! The sound's sometimes spare and rootsy, but still with this undercurrent of funk – as Dibango mixes together basslines with marimba, percussion, and some other cool earthy touches – all to provide a very hip backdrop for his own sax solos in the lead – which are still as powerful as on his other records, but in a very different way – almost more thoughtful, and more deeply soulful. There's a brooding intensity to the whole thing that builds nicely as the album moves on – and titles include "Ceddo", "Marabout", "La Boisson", and "Les Cavaliers". LP, Vinyl record album

Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! The CD comes with a great booklet featuring notes by Gossner and personal reflections by El Rego. Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

Gruppo Afro Mediterraneo1972 Blues Jazz Session ... LP
Black Sweat (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A record that's as cool as you'd expect from the title and the cover – recorded by a hip group on the Milan scene in the early 70s – working here on long improvisations that are influenced both by jazz and blues! Given the instrumentation, the group's mostly a jazz combo overall – as they feature tenor, flute, guitar, bass, and congas – but the set also features some harmonica solos, and these cool vocalizations from Nicolas Eyok – who's kind of channeling blues into a weirder level of expression! Side one features "Afro Mediterraneo Blues" – a track that's over 18 minutes long, and the most blues-based in rhythm – while side two features shorter, jazzier cuts that include "Captain Roland Kirk", "La Piantagione Del Blue", and "Dondolando Sul 24".

Very dark sounds from this cross-cultural combo – a group who certainly draw from Tunisian roots at times, but who almost come across sounding more like one of the darker acts from the post-punk generation! The "electrique" in the name is well-put – as even the acoustic elements of the music are more subdued by the heavier guitars and keyboards, and the slower pace of the songs – which almost has an Afro-goth sort of vibe at times! Titles include "Laa La Illa Allah", "Mawwel", "Qaadrii Salaam Alaik Massarh", "Stombali Baba Alaia", "Sidriiya", and "Arrah Arrah Abbaina Bahari Tenouiba". CD

Alain Jean-MarieBiguine Reflections ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1992. Used ... $7.99
A really unique little record – a set of jazz reinterpretations of the style of biguine – that highly rhythmic mode from the French West Indies, which itself received a strong influx of jazz in the post-war years! Alain Jean-Marie has roots in Guadeloupe, but plays with the open flow of some of our favorite French pianists, too – and the album's treasure that we've loved for years – one with rhythmic impulses that are unlike any other jazz trio record we can think of! Alain first played in other biguine groups in his youth, so is very familiar with the style – but really opens it up here with the help of Eric Vinceno on bass and Serge Marne on drums. Titles include "Tieri An Lan Demil", "Bone An Mwen Pati", "Haitian Child", "Chofe Bigin La", "Driv", and "Gwadloup An Nou". (Jazz, Global Grooves) CD

Heady sounds from Karthala 72 – a group with a very vintage sound – one that rings out with plenty of offbeat funky elements, African percussion, and maybe even a sense of bassline borrowed from Colombian music! The group have a wonderful criss-crossing of styles – and this full length set mixes electric and acoustic elements brilliantly – almost with a Konono approach at times, but with a groove that's much more expansive overall! The liner notes try to bill the record as an obscurity from the past, but it's our guess that these guys are contemporary – which is even more reason to love them. Titles include "Delores", "Diable Du Feu", "Marche De La Mort", "Bahari Farasi", "Armour Sombre", "Trop Fort", and "Le Vieux Chien Marcel". LP, Vinyl record album

Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1988. Used ... $5.99
An unusual blend of jazz, fusion, and gwo ka rhythms from Guadelopue – served up here in a classic album from trumpeter Edmony Krater! Krater blows some beautiful solos on the record – a bit like Don Cherry in some of his more globally-oriented projects – but the overall approach is more rhythmic, and tied together by keyboards and basslines, which are then offset by rootsier percussion elements that trace back to the earlier days of the genre – while Edmony and his compatriots continue to inflect some modern touches over the top! The group's got some sweet guitar lines from Freddy Tisseur, whose playing nicely skirts both sides of this sound – and titles include "Crepuscule", "Tijan", "Gwadloup", "Chimin Spirit", and "Occitan Dance". CD features two bonus tracks – "Rime A La Vi" and "Sonje Pa Plere". CD

Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Do yourself a favor, and buy this album – you won't be disappointed! The record is a gem all the way through – a really unique mixture of LA soul jazz and African rhythms, with a sound that's almost like Hugh Masekela sitting in with the Jazz Crusaders! Of course, there's a lot of Jazz Crusaders in the set – as Wilton Felder plays electric bass on the album, giving it a fantastic loping groove – but there's also plenty of unique albums on the record, especially its way of approaching the rhythms with a sly, syncopated groove that's immediately infectious! Duke's trumpet solos are great, and they're augmented by tenor work by Chester Washington and trombone by George Bohannon – all nicely grooving on the album's brilliant blend of jazzy tracks. Titles include "Jungle Funk", "Afrikaloo", "Akagruge", "Like It Is", "Mafam", and "Peace Brother". Somebody put this one on CD – and do us all a treat! LP, Vinyl record album

A wholly unique late 60s record by Orquesta Afro Brasileira – with these raw, heavy and unforgettable roosty rhythms and chorus vocals that give it something of a spiritual, folkloric vibe – yet the overall sound is still indicative of the genre-busting creativity of the many different late 60s Brazilian scenes! Those folk and roots elements are balanced by more modernly inspired sax, clarinet and piano that remind us a bit of some of nascent Afro jazz and funk from the late 60s. The mix of styles has a really hypnotic effect! Includes "Ago Lonan", "Rei N'Aruanda", "Nagana (Senhor)", "Xango". "Os Oinho De Iaia", "Babaloxa", "Tire O Calundu", "Palmares", "India", "Mo-Fi-La-Do-Fe", "Saudacao Aos Orixas" and "Canto Para Omolu". (Brazil, Global Grooves) LP, Vinyl record album

Roger RaspailDalva ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
Great work from Guadeloupean percussionist Roger Raspail – a set that offers up an unusual blend of jazz and island modes, but in a way that's very rich and organic – without any sort of self-conscious attitude about its presentation! Raspail's worked for years on the Paris scene – and has always been part of that city's rich post-colonial criss-crossing of modes – especially the side of the French jazz scene that has always been very open to non-Anglo rhythms, and allowed very open interplay of different ideas! That approach is definitely in place here – on sounds that maybe offer up more of Raspail's roots than some of his early records – but in a way that also shows his warm absorption of continental modes too. Guests include Vincent Segal, Alain Jean-Marie, Anthony Joseph, and Dao – and titles include "Kalypso Ka", "Rara", "Manza Rene", "Nuite Douce", "Bossa De La Plage", "Papa Yaya", "Ballade A Ilet Perou", and "Anty Kaz La".
