RCA/Nature Sounds, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Funky soul from Buari – a native of Ghana, working here in a tight slick funk mid 70s American mode. There's less heavy Afro grooves than you'd hear on a Fela album from the time – but the album does a great job of mixing American style raw funk (by a group that includes Bernard Purdie ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A slow-grooving boogie number from Junior Byron – one that's got a catchy sort of back/forth rhythm, which Junior uses to nice advantage with his swinging vocals on the tune!

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 ...

A set that's maybe a bit different than other Nigerian grooves you might know from the early 80s – as Hycento Junior has a strong influence from American hip hop, and also a bit of reggae as well! Side one of the album feels almost as if it was lifted from the same scene as Grandmaster Flash ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Great electronics from the Indian scene of the 80s – music that's a lot warmer and more evocative than you might guess from the "robotic" in the title – thanks to plenty of roots in the Kollywood soundtrack scene! The instrumentation is often spare, but still echoes the ... read more CD

One of the most roosty albums on Blue Note – and a fairly straight session of African percussion tracks by Solomon Ilori and his Afro Drum Ensemble.

A great little album of percussion grooves – hidden under a package that looks like it's going to be a lot more rootsy, but which ends up sounding like some of the hipper conga-heavy sessions on labels like Liberty or GNP from the late 50s. Jackson plays much of the percussion, but there's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
