BuariDisco Soccer ... CD
Makossa/BBE (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A killer blend of African roots and American rhythms – and a set that definitely lives up to the disco promised in the title! Buari's working here with a host of New York musicians – jazzy players who include Randy Brecker and Jon Faddis on trumpet, Barry Rogers on trombone, and Michael Brecker on tenor – all blowing tightly over the album's quick rhythms and well-crafted string arrangements! The sound is hardly familiar disco – and the music is much more in the styles of the underground at the time – almost equivalent to P&P Records productions in the way that Buari works some clever magic with the grooves. The whole thing's got a lot more edge than his better-known set on RCA – and titles include "Koko Si", "I'm Ready", "Feed My Body", "Hard Times", "Adesa A", "Minyo", "Born With Music", and "African Hustle".

Goddy OkuOne More Chance ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1984. New Copy ... $3.99 16.99
A very cool record from Goddy Oku – who's pictured on the back cover working the knobs on a big studio console – definitely making sure that he gets his hand in the way the album's put together! There's an offbeat funky vibe to most of these tracks – almost a mode that recalls the P&P Records sound of late 70s New York – as weird synth bits come into play alongside the basslines and vocals – peppering up the grooves, which themselves get a bit spaced out in the production! Things are never too trippy, but work nicely with the vocal trio of two gals and one guy – and the approach sounds especially great on the heavier funk tracks on the set. Titles include "The Enemy", "My Music", "Don't Ask Me", "Everything", and "One More Chance". CD
