Blue Note, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $45.99 64.99
One of the coolest records in years from the legendary Tony Allen – and that's saying a lot, given that his legacy includes famous work as a drummer with Fela Kuti, and a much more recent run of very experimental recordings!

✨✧ Black HippiesBlack Hippies ... LP
Academy, 1977. Near Mint- (reissue)... $16.99
Hardly the kind of hippies that were always hanging around when we were growing up – as these guys are super tight, super funky, and right on the money throughout – grooving hard in one of the most searing styles of Afro Funk we've ever heard! Older psych modes are turned towards the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don Cherry & Latif KhanMusic/Sangam ... LP
Europa, 1978/1982. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent album from Cherry – recorded in Paris in 1978, and featuring duets with tabla player Latif Khan. The sound is spare an unencumbered by any additional backing or electronics – but there's an overall groove to the record that's really really nice. Tablas set the rhythm, and ...

Decca (UK), 1976. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A funky gem from reedman Manu Dibango – a set recorded hot on the heels of his huge Soul Makossa hit, and done with a similar blend of African roots and 70s funk! The main focus here is on the instrumentation – not just Manu's saxophone lines, but also some great keyboards too – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ EL V & The GardenhouseEl Doctor/Tamarita (colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
"El Doctor" is a lively little number with a nice hint of revolution – performed here by a combo from Italy, but with a very South American vibe! The percussion is upbeat, the horns punch along with the groove, and the rolling lyrics are nice and compelling – and the flipside ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Knitting Factory, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
A really seminal album from Fela Kuti – searing live set that pairs him with drummer Ginger Baker – formerly of Cream, and a huge supporter of Fela's music on the UK scene! Baker had already picked up a lot of Fela's influence in his music – and rather than the record being one ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

EG/Glitterbeat (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $15.99
One of the lasting moments of genius from trumpeter Jon Hassell – his second entry in Brian Eno's 4th World series, and a set that's even more mindblowing than the first!

Fierce funky sounds from 70s Cameroon – the entire recorded legacy of Hamad Kalkaba, who only issued three funky 45s back in the day! Yet even at six songs, the music here is completely tremendous – tunes that rumble along on this earthy sort of energy – drums that are heavier at ... read more CD
