✨✧ Manu DibangoAmbassador ... LP
Mango, 1981. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A slightly confused effort from Manu Dibango's later years – sessions recorded in Paris, London, New York, and Kingston – which must have cost Island Records a bundle! There's an attempt here to change up Manu's groove a bit – one that brings a fair bit of reggae into the mix in place of Afro Funk, and which also goes for other looser tropical touches on other tunes. A number of tracks have backing vocals – by singers that include Gwen Guthrie and Ullanda McCullough – but the main focus is still on Manu's choppy saxes. Titles include "Happy Feeling", "Choc N Soul", "Night Jet", "Kumbale Style", and "Cava Chouia". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has radio station stickers and call letters in marker, edge wear, and some Cover has a cut corner.)

Johnny Mbizo DyaniWitchdoctor's Son – Together ... LP
Cadillac, 1979. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A late 70s album from the great bassist Johnny Dyani – but one that really gets back to his roots in South African jazz! Although Dyani and his expatriates in the Blue Notes helped give London a new sound of avant jazz expression in the 70s, the music here returns to the warmer melodic style of their early 60s days – with loping rhythms that draw on regional tradition, and soulful interplay between the alto of Dudu Pukwana, tenor of Peter Shimmy Radise, and keyboards from Dyani – who shifts his instrument for this special recording! The group also features use of guitar, congas, whistles, and a South American harp – used in rhythmic ways that pulsate warmly – on titles that include "Kalahari", "Tula Tula", "High Priest", "Johnny's Kwela", and "Together".
