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- ... $24.99
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".

✨✧ OsibisaOsibisa ... LP
Decca, 1971. Used Gatefold ... 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
(German pressing. Cover has light wear.)
