✨✧ Johnny Dyani/Mongezi Feza/Okay TemizMusic For Xaba ... LP
Antilles, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic set of world jazz jams from the left edge of the spectrum – featuring the duo of ex-Blue Notes Johnny Dyani and Mongezi Feza, teamed up with European percussionist Okay Temiz! The format is free and open, with strands of South African rhythms from the Blue Notes' roots, plus some more of the avant soloing of Feza's later London years. Temiz is almost a bit more restrained compared to the other players – filling in spaces behind Dyani's bass, piano, and vocals – and letting Feza play some percussion in addition to his usual trumpet work. Titles include "Idyongwana", "Feelings", "Gorans Soder", and "Traditional South African Songs". (Jazz, Global Grooves) LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has one slightly bumped corner, but is nice overall.)

✨✧ OsibisaOsibisa ... LP
Decca, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although Osibisa were one of the most successful of the London-based Afro-funk groups, they were also one of the best. This cool first album is filled with (as the label says) "criss cross rhythms that explode with happiness". Translated, that means that the record's got lots of nice cuts that have African percussion, electric funk rhythm, and a fairly joyous groove. Tracks include "Akwaaba", "Oranges", "The Dawn", "Think About The People", and the groovy "Music For Gong Gong". LP, Vinyl record album
