✨✧ Ahmed Abdul-MalikEast Meets West ... LP
RCA, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A brilliant mix of jazz and world music! Abdul-Malik was the legendary bass player from the fifties who mixed straight jazz playing with traditional Middle Eastern rhythms – and although he most famously recorded albums with Monk as a regular bassist, his albums on his own are amazing ...

Glitterbeat, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99

✨✧ BatsumiMoving Along ... LP
Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the rare few albums cut by this legendary South African group of the 70s – a set that's still got all the jazzy inflections of their previous records, but which also brings in a bit more soul and funk as well! The ensemble are wonderfully tight, but still have a sense of looseness ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sofrito (UK), 1991. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pumped-up version of this classic bit of gwo ka – as Frankie Francis and Simbad add in these sweet electric touches to "Soufwans" – a cut originally released by Esnard Boisdur in 1991, but which sounds even better here! All the raw percussion and vocals of the original are ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sofrito (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
Sofrito edits of Nigerian boogie from Benis Cletin! "Jungle Magic" starts with tripped out, rubbery echoey synth sounds and the title words repeated and repeated before it kicks into full swing with some Afro disco guitar and heavy, heavy bass grooves. The madly percussive "Money ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Janus, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
Cymande hit some well-deserved heights on this massive third album – working with a complicated groove that's even more compelling than their earlier albums – in a righteous blend of heavy bass and tripped-out guitars that's unlike anything else we've ever heard!

Sahel Sounds, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99
A beautiful cut from the contemporary Saharan scene – one that's got this midtempo rhythm that steps along slowly – while a supremely hypnotic guitar line spins out over the top, after being introduced by a bit of catchy chorus! The guitar part's the main draw here – but the ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
