HamaHoumeissa ... LP
Sahel Sounds, 2019. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the coolest records we've heard on the Sahel Sound label to date – not the usual guitar material you might know from the imprint, but instead a batch of very cosmic keyboards – all instrumental, and spinning out into space with a vibe that's almost a collision between the best ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Handy/Ali Akbar KhanRainbow ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1980. Near Mint- ... $13.99
The second, and lesser-known collaboration between reedman John Handy and sarod player Ali Akbar Khan – and a record that's almost more freewheeling and open-ended than the first! The session's relatively spare – mostly just alto sax, sarod, and violin from L Subramaniam – plus ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

PMG (Austria), 1975. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
Great work from this cool Nigerian funk combo of the 70s – a group who bore strong ties to the equally-great Akwassa, and who work here with an equally righteous groove! Lyrics are mostly in English, and have some political currents that give the music a social sort of edge – but the ... read more CD

Luaka Bop, Early 80s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Incredibly unique work from Panduranga Henderson – an artist who first worked as John Henderson in the group of Ray Charles, then hooked up with Alice Coltrane and had a spiritual awakening that really shaped his sound! The music here isn't at all like Charles or Coltrane – although it' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Paul HornInside (aka Inside The Taj Majal) ... LP
Epic, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
One of the most starkly beautiful recordings in Paul Horn's career – with spiritually resonant, almost spine tingling solo flute and some chants, all recorded in the Taj Majal one day in April of 1968! It's really all about the atmosphere, as it would have to be given the location – ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul HornInside II ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Sealed Gatefold ... $2.99
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! Like Inside, it's a solo ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Paul HornPaul Horn In Kashmir ... LP
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Easily the trippiest of Paul Horn's 60s experiments – and even more far-reaching than his Paul Horn In India set! This one has a very similar feel to Paul's Indian session, but it's much more transcendental – with long tunes that spin out amidst sitar, tabla, and vocals – going ...

Kedzie, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
A really great chapter in the long and funky history of the musicians that also played in Lafayette Afro Rock Band and Cane & Abel – and a cool little set that may be one of the best records to ever come from the collective! The players work here as Ice – and come across like some ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

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 ...

A Venezuelan group, one who are living in Paris – and work here with a criss-crossing of styles that really reflect that global journey! The music definitely has echoes of older Venezuelan styles, but maybe served up in a more impressionistic version – with a dream-like quality at ... read more CD

The debut albums from brothers Ismail and Sixu Toure – a duo who'd soon rise to global fame as Toure Kunda, but emerge here with a sound that's very lean and funky overall! The record's a great fusion of funky late 70s Parisian styles and elements from the Toure homeland of Senegal – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tight Nigerian boogie from Ben Jagga – done with a lean groove that really represents the change in styles during the 80s, while still holding onto modes that reference some of the funk from before!

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
