Mar & Sol (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
One of the only albums ever recorded by Djarama – a group with roots in Cape Verde, but who rocked the Dutch scene of the mid 80s – where their highly rhythmic style must have been a huge hit!

GuneshGunesh ... LP
Everland (Austria), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Gunesh might look a bit unusual on the cover – like some crazy mountain folk who've somehow gotten ahold of band instruments – but on the album, they've got this tight funky sound that's mighty nice – yet which is also still as unusual as their look! The instrumentation is jazz ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

GutsPhilantropiques ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2019. New Copy ... $16.99
Guts bills this set as "an Afro-Tropical experiment" – but to us, the album's just a further expansion of his wonderful talents as a producer – which have really come a long way in just a few years! Guts maybe got his start in hip hop, but he's able to embrace a globe's worth ... (New Grooves, Global Grooves) read more CD

Kiki GyanFeeling So Good ... CD
Everland (Austria), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic groover from Kiki Gyan – a singer from Ghana who worked in Osibisa during the early 70s – but one who's also got a really universal club vibe here on this overlooked gem from the end of the 70s! The record's got a bubbling, upbeat vibe that really lives up to its title ... read more CD

Clarinet music, but unlike anything else you might have heard before – as Greek musician Kitsos Harisiadis uses the instrument in a style that's quite far from American jazz and swing! Instead, the clarinet here is used on a series of folkloric tunes – music from the northwestern ... read more CD

Muhavishla Ravi Hatchud & The Indo Jazz FollowingBombay Palace (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Outernational (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A sweet bit of Indo Jazz – but one that's quite different than the Joe Harriott experiments with the format in the 60s! Instead, this groove has more of a funky sitar feel – ala the Ravi Harris records from 20 years back – a tight funk combo with an electric sitar going all wild ...

Big Beat (UK), Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Rare rock from the Japanese scene of the postwar years – but sounds that definitely have a universal appeal overall! Masaaki Hirao is way more than just a novelty remake of American rockers of the time – as he's got a sharp-edged sound that easily rivals the best we had to offer here ...

Paul Horn follows up his Inside The Taj Majal set – in someways leaving behind the stark, spare initimacy of that set for a more layered and tailored approach – and also leaving behind his more pronounced jazz roots for a more earthy and nature themed mode!

Easily the trippiest of Paul Horn's 60s experiments – and even more far-reaching than his Paul Horn In India set!

It's hard to imagine these kings being left behind, as the sound of Ikebe Shakedown just keeps getting bolder and more majestic with each new release – a very special strand of deep funk, with a blend of horns that you might find in a more Afro-styled band, mixed with tighter rhythms at the ...
