Kitsos HarisiadisLament In A Deep Style – 1929 to 1931 ... LP
Third Man, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 18.00
Clarinet music, but unlike anything else you might have heard before – as Greek musician Kitsos Harisiadis uses the instrument in a style that's quite far from American jazz and swing! Instead, the clarinet here is used on a series of folkloric tunes – music from the northwestern ... 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

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!

Big Beat (UK), Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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 ...

✨✧ Paul HornInside (aka Inside The Taj Majal) ... LP
Epic, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
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. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $1.99
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!

Paul HornPaul Horn In Kashmir ... LP
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
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 ...

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!
