VariousBeyond Addis Vol 2 – Modern Ethiopian Dance Grooves Inspired By Swinging Addis ... CD
Trikont (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
The influence of Ethiopian grooves has been strongly felt in the worlds of funk and jazz over the past decade or two – thanks to tremendous global exposure of the sound of the 70s through various reissues and the Ethiopiques compilation series – which has inspired a whole new generation of artists with their sound! That huge influence can definitely be heard here – in a wonderful collection of contemporary cuts brought together by JJ Whitefield – a funky colleague of many of the artists here, and who, like them, have really helped re-shape the sound of funk with a range of global elements. Some of these tracks are from Ethiopian artists, but many more are by American and European acts who've picked up plenty from the generation of Mulatu – and really made a great run with their styles! Titles include "Cave Of Brahma" by The Sorcerers, "Yesega Wat" by Debre Damo Dining Orchestra, "Safari Strut" by Whitefield Brothers, "Lions" by Anbessa Orchestra, "Followed Path" by Karl Hector & The Malcouns, "Stuzzicadenti" by Cosmic Analog Ensemble, "The Biz" by Transgressors, "Musicawi Silt" by The Daktaris, "Ethopino" by Jungle By Night, "The Viper" by Tezeta Band, "Zilzil" by Les Freres Smith, "Cool Runnings" by Onom Agemo & The Disco Jumpers, and "Anbessa" by Akala Wube with Manu Dibango.

✨✧ GilfemaGilfema + 2 ... CD
ObliqSound, 2008. Used ... $1.99
The Gilfema trio's expanded here by the addition of two horns – clarinet and bass clarinet, which are both used to shade in the album's tones nicely – expanding the range of the core guitar, drums, and bass – with slightly angular elements and a great sense of color! As before, singer/guitarist Lionel Loueke is the key force of the album – really making things sparkle with his warmly inventive approach to music – steeped a bit in older traditions, but delivered with some jazz-based phrasing that's mighty nice – clear and clean, yet never too sanded-down or smooth. There's a charm here that recalls small group African jazz sides from years back – although the music is never straight jazz either – and titles include "Cove", "Festa", "Morning Dew", "Your World", "Salome", "Twins", and "Question Of Perspective".

✨✧ VariousGroove Club 2 – Cambodia Rock Spectacular ... LP
Lion/Get On Down, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A pretty incredible compilation of Cambodia Rock – the best one we've come across – classic original Khmer Rock from scene pioneer Sinn Sisamouth and many more! The set as an effort to present this fun, groovy and yes, spectacular Cambodian Rock as it was originally heard by the people in its pre-Pol Pot heyday – before the original vinyl releases were hidden away and eventually circulated via low quality cassette bootlegs – and it sounds great! Awesome stuff all around, much of it with a raw garage psych vibe with fuzzed out guitars, heavy drums, woozy organ and male & female lead vocals – always with a groovy rhythm. Includes "Do You No Wrong Again" by Thra Kha Band, "Khnyom Jah Karake" by Tet Somnang & Meas Samon, "Pros Chang Reiy" and "Pail Loung Rom (Go To Dance)" by Pan Ron, "Jet Snaeh Theang Nov" and "Yuvachon Yuvatey Samai Tmai (New Generation Youth" by Sinn Sisamouth & Ros Dereysothea, "Duang Netra" and "Satt Thee Thuy" by Sinn Sisamouth, "Bong Rau Roub Khnyom" by Ros Sereysothea, "Youm Os Tirk Pnake" by Pov Vannary and more. 19 tracks on 2LPs in a nice gatefold sleeve with fairly extensive notes on the back cover and inside the gatefold. LP, Vinyl record album
