Lloyd MillerNear And Far East ... LP
East West/Ascensionale (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $44.99
One of the most evocative albums ever recorded by the enigmatic Lloyd Miller – a set created at Brigham Young University, in Utah – but filled with a mix of different styles from the other half of the planet! Miller plays a variety of stringed instruments and percussion – including some great xylophone, shamisen, tabla, and santur – and is joined by flutes and recorders, tar, ching, and vocals from two different female singers – both used sparingly, in ways that barely get in the way of the instrumentation! There's less jazz here than some of Miller's later projects – and the record's got a vibe that almost makes it feel like some classic Ocora recording of sounds from Japan, China, Viet Nam, India, and other points east. Titles include "Hakimi", "Co La", "Luu Thuy", "Sakura", "Karpagame", "Seh Gah", and "Amen Avci Vurma Beni". (Jazz, Global Grooves) LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 200 copies – and packaged in a very heavy, hand-assembled cover!)

VariousLuangwa To Livingstone – Music from Zambia – Chikunda, Nsenga, Soli, Cewa, Tonga, Ila, & Leya (4CD set) ... CD
SWP (Netherlands), 2020. New Copy 4CD ... $38.99
A wealth of recent recordings from the SWP label – an ethnographic powerhouse who are really furthering the sorts of material initially captured by earlier labels like Folkways or Ocora! The style here is very much like the latter – very faithful to the presentation, and very well-recorded – and there's also a clear social mission to really push deeper and farther – in this case well into the eastern side of Zambia's Luangwa province, which includes some musical styles and cultures that have never been recorded before! The set is huge – 4CDs with a tremendous amount of music – presented in a very cool book-styled cover, with copious notes – and separately themed CDs, with titles that include Southern Province Mix, Leya Ceremony & Songs, The Complete Kalonda Band Recordings, and Chikunda Nsenga Soli Cewa.

VariousMusic From Barotseland – Recordings In Zambia's Western Province – Lozi, Mbunda, Nkoya, & Luvale (4CD set) ... CD
SWP (Netherlands), 2020. New Copy 4CD ... $38.99
A massive collection of music from the Barotseland province of Zambia – all recorded recently, but with a clarity and classic style of presentation that rivals some of the classic releases on Ocora from the 60s! The 4CD set features four different slices of music from the area, all presented in a book-styled cover with plenty of notes – with instrumentation that includes thumb piano, guitar, xylophones, and plenty of percussion – captured in stripped-down spontaneous settings with really great fidelity – on separate titles that include The Barotse Guitar, Siyemboka Music, Drums Voices Sticks, and Kangombio Silimba Jazz. 56 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousTropical Disco Hustle Vol 2 – More Rare Carribean Disco ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The sound of disco left no corner of the world untouched in the late 70s – and the hipper side of the dancefloor mode had an especially strong impact down in the Caribbean! Of course, that's maybe not as much of a surprise – when you consider how much back/forth action was going on between New York and the islands at the time – a rich sharing of cultural heritage that not only helped breathe great new energy into soul and funk in the US during the 70s, but also had a strong impact back home as well! This stunning second volume of the Tropical Disco Hustle series really documents the best examples of that wonderful cultural exchange – music that carries plenty of traces of New York club, but which also brings in lots of local elements too – from styles like soca, reggae, and calypso, plus some Latin modes as well. Titles include "Music Makes The World Go Round" by The Hamilton Brothers, "Let's Party" by Tru Tones, "Socorama" by Defosto, "The Dealer" by Wild Fire, "Music Lady" by Patti Charles, "Savage" by Maestro, "My Life My Music & Me" by Keith Paul & The GT Boom Band, "Caribbean People (Waxist Selecta edit)" by C Soprann H, "Try Making Love" by Wild Fire, and "Dancing" by Tru Tones. (Funky Compilations, Global Grooves) CD
