Ubiquity, 2011. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
The much anticipated full length debut of Brooklyn Afro Funk and psych soul-influenced combo Ikebe Shakedown – following up their tight, promising EP on the Colemine label with an excellent self-titled set on Ubiquity! One of our favorite things about Ikebe Shakedown's style is the way they ... (Deep Funk, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ubiquity, 2014. New Copy ... $13.99 18.98
A really great second album from Ikebe Shakedown – easily the group's best work so far, and a real cut above the usual Afro-styled groove! These guys have a great way of laying back in their rhythms – still keeping things funky, but nicely paced too – so that there's a fresh feel ...

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Late 70s. Sealed ... $11.99
A second set of Disco Folk from this unique Turkish pair – duo working in late 70s Germany, and mixing up their own roots with a range of different electric instrumentation! The odd modes of the sound are wonderfully captured in the unique three-necked guitar on the front cover – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Odion IruojeDown To Earth (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Soundway (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 27.98
Odion Iruoje is billed as the "Sound President" on the cover – a title he definitely deserves, given the amazing sound of this set – which mixes early 80s Nigerian electro sounds with a bit of influence from hip hop too! Iruoje's completely comfortable in both mides – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Akira Ishikawa & Count BuffalosUganda – Dawn Of African Rock ... LP
Toshiba/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $45.99
One of the coolest records we've ever heard from Japanese drummer Akira Ishikawa – even wilder than some of his famous funk sessions of the time! The set definitely lives up to its African Rock promise – as it features lots of sparely percussive tracks that build beautifully – ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Shankar JaikishanRaga Jazz Style ... LP
EMI/Outernational (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
An album that's every bit as cool as you might expect – a set that's very much in the same Indo-jazz experiments as saxophonist Joe Harriott, but with a slightly different approach overall! Although sitar is part of the instrumentation, there's also a fair bit of conventional jazz phrasing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Alain Jean-MarieBiguine Reflections ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1992. Used ... $7.99
A really unique little record – a set of jazz reinterpretations of the style of biguine – that highly rhythmic mode from the French West Indies, which itself received a strong influx of jazz in the post-war years! Alain Jean-Marie has roots in Guadeloupe, but plays with the open flow ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

Hank Jones with Cheick Tidiane Seck & The MandikasSarala ... CD
Verve, 1995. Used ... $2.99
One of the hippest albums Hank Jones ever recorded – a very unique mixture of jazz and African elements, put together with organist Cheick Tidiane Seck! Jones plays his usual piano, but the strongest elements on the set come from Seck's Hammond work, and instrumentation from other members of ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

Juju (Oneness Of Juju)Chapter Two – Nia ... LP
Strata East, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The rare second album from Juju – the avant jazz collective who'd later morph into funk band Oneness Of Juju, but who still sound pretty revolutionary here! There's a bit more focus than before – still energy that's a lot like the best righteous jazz groups coming out of Chicago or St ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Juju (Oneness Of Juju)Message From Mozambique ... LP
Black Fire, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The first album by the group that later went on to become Oneness Of Juju! The album was recorded with a group that featured Plunky Nakabinde and Lon Moshe on reeds and percussion – plus Babatunde on congas and drums – and the overall sound is very much in kind of an Art Ensemble Of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Orlando JuliusDance Afro-Beat ... LP
Afro-Beat, 1984. Very Good+ ... $19.99
An obscure album of 80s grooves from the man who virtually invented African Funk! As you can guess by the date, this one's not in the harder mode of Julius' earlier sessions – but it's still got some great choppy Fela-like grooves, and instrumentation that's still quite committed to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Orlando JuliusLove, Peace, & Happiness ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
An unusual album from Afro Funk legend Orlando Julius – in that it was recorded in the US, and definitely has the groove to match! The style here is right up there with the best American underground funk of the time – and the record has a groove that really mixes up African roots and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
