✨✧ Sarathy KorwarMy East Is Your West ... CD
Gearbox (UK), 2018. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 14.99
A really amazing little record – one that's partly in the "jazz meets Indian" mode of Joe Harriott's experiments of the 60s – but a performance that also brings in a lot more from spiritual jazz, even though most of the instrumentation is more traditional! The set is live, ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

Kodjovi Kush & Afrospot All StarsLove In Africa ... CD
Chop Time (Netherlands), 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
A contemporary Afro Funk record, but one with a vibe that makes us feel like we've discovered some lost strand of sound from the 70s! The Afrospot All Stars are wonderfully jazzy – a group who swing their horns more than blast them at times, warmed up by some great Fender Rhodes and very ... read more CD

Knitting Factory, 2018. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The title of the first track here really gets the spirit of the album right – "Africa Will Be Great Again" – which stands at the start as one of the most declarative moments on record from Femi Kuti, and really sets the tone for the rest of the record! There's definitely some ... read more CD

Seun Kuti & Egypt 80Black Times ... CD
Strut (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Some of the most righteous and furiously funky Afro Soul since Fela Kuti's prime – and it's beyond appropriate for such a committed, perfect personification of a classic sound via a modern player come from Fela's own son Seun! As strident as Seun's approach is, much like his father at his ... read more CD

Lionel LouekeJourney ... CD
Aparte (France), 2018. New Copy ... $24.99
Lionel Loueke, standing nicely on the borders of his styles – playing jazzily, to be sure – but also opening up with plenty of global elements too – in a lineup that includes the musician on a bit of percussion, alongside other percussion from Cyro Baptista and Christi Joza Orisha ...

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Very cool work from the Parisian scene of the late 60s – material that has a bit of a French swing jazz guitar approach, but which is also served up with lots of Caribbean touches, too – including a fair bit of Latin currents in the percussion and piano! Guitarist Pierre Louis was born ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

LulendoMwinda ... CD
Buda (France), 2017. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Beautifully bubbling sounds from Lulendo – a singer who also plays a fair bit of quissange – an African thumb piano, in the same manner as the kalimba! The instrument rings out with these percussive notes right alongside his lively, lyrical vocals – set to instrumentation that is ... read more CD

Afrodisia/Mr Bongo (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Long live disco, but not the sort that was big on the American scene of the 70s – as Tunde Mabadu serves up a nicely lean version of the music here – filled with Nigerian funk elements, and plenty of his own great work on tenor and alto sax! The tunes are jumpy, jaunty, and plenty darn ... read more CD
