OlatunjiZungo! – Afro Percussion ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of Olatunji's best LPs, and a record that breaks out of his usual straight hard percussion stuff by adding some jazz players like Yusef Lateef, Clark Terry, and George Duvivier. There's also some singers augmenting the ensemble, but they drop out in parts, and the percussion and jazz take over. Olatunji's joined by Ray Barretto and Montego Joe on congas, and the whole thing grooves like one of Art Blakey's jazz/percussion experiments. 7 tracks: "Masque Dance", "Zungo", "Ajua", "Esum Buku Wa-Ya", "Gelewenwe", "Jolly Mensah" and "Philistine". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye mono pressing. Cover has a light wear & some discoloration from age.)

✨✧ Guy Warren SoundsThemes for African Drums ... LP
RCA, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic LP by Guy Warren, an enigmatic figure who skated around between the jazz and lounge worlds, and who did really have a faithful dedication to African drumming. He hung with Monk, and yet also had his "sounds" group record masterpieces of exotica like this album for RCA. The album has a very driving feel, with a number of percussionists, and solos by Lawrence Brown on trombone. Titles include "Waltzing Drums", "Lady Marie Drum Suite", and "Blood Brother". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing.)
