Third Man, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99 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

A disco album with a difference – given that the set was recorded in London by young Pakistani singer Nazia Hassan, and produced and arranged by Biddu – the man who gave the world the famous Biddu Orchestra records in the 70s!

EG, 1981. Near Mint- ... $34.99
One of the lasting moments of genius from trumpeter Jon Hassell – his second entry in Brian Eno's 4th World series, and a set that's even more mindblowing than the first! As with that one, the approach here mixes together electric and acoustic sounds, with an imagined landscape of ... (Rock, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Little Giant/We Are Busy Bodies, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
A rare South African jazz treasure – a set that's much more obscure than some of the bigger names of the scene, and which has a sound that's very different too! There's maybe a stronger American influence taking place here, especially in the rhythms, but also in the phrasing – and the ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet funky sounds from east Nigeria, circa 1980 – a great little set that's got a laidback groove, and a style that's clearly learned plenty from the hipper corners of the American funk universe! The approach is a bit like funky club at times, a bit more like some of the larger funk acts of ... read more CD

Great electronics from the Indian scene of the 80s – music that's a lot warmer and more evocative than you might guess from the "robotic" in the title – thanks to plenty of roots in the Kollywood soundtrack scene! The instrumentation is often spare, but still echoes the ... read more CD

Albarika Store/Acid Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 23.98
Fantastic funk from late 70s Benin – a set that maybe owes as much to the sound of New York as it does to the West African groove of the time! The album's got a monstrous bassy vibe all the way through – with cuts that often just riff and groove like some of the best clubby funk acts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Weird album that came out in the early 70s, when Stax was getting their hands into so many other styles of music besides southern soul and funk. Margaret Singana's the lead vocalist of this group that plays in a sort of Afro Pop/Afro Funk style, and she lays down the lyrics on tracks like "The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the hippest albums Hank Jones ever recorded – a very unique mixture of jazz and African elements, put together with organist Cheick Tidiane Seck!
