IlaiyaraajaIlectro – Euphoric Electronics & Robotic Funk (UK pressing) ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
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

Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $14.99
A pastiche of of styles from the late 70s and early 80s Kollywood cinema scene – amazing stuff produced and arranged by Ilaiyaraaja – music that trades as much in heavy funk as it does electronic pop!

MPS (Germany), 1967. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Really wonderful stuff – and a record that may well be even better than the previous flamenco jazz albums cut by Paco DeLucia and Petro Iturralde in Spain! This set is part of a key late 60s moment when the MPS label was experimenting with a blend of jazz and sounds from around the globe ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tabansi/BBE (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 29.99
Tight Nigerian boogie from Ben Jagga – done with a lean groove that really represents the change in styles during the 80s, while still holding onto modes that reference some of the funk from before! Ben's got this bright style of singing, and at times the record almost has a Caribbean vibe ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Honey Pie, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 29.99
A landmark album in South African jazz – featuring a group that includes early work from Dollar Brand on piano, Hugh Masekela on trumpet, Kippie Moeketsi on alto, and Jonas Gwanga on trombone! The style here is surprisingly close to American hardbop of the 50s – with less of the more ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1995. Used ... $6.99
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! Jones plays his usual piano, but the strongest elements on the set come from Seck's Hammond work, and instrumentation from other members of ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

Black Fire/Strut (UK), 1973. New Copy 2LP ... $27.99 29.99
A much-needed slice of work from Juju – the group who later transformed into spiritual funk ensemble Oneness Of Juju! Juju only recorded two full albums in the early 70s, so this unissued live set is a key addition to their catalog – and the whole thing's got this bold quality that's ...

Philips/Voodoo Funk, 1973. New Copy ... $6.99 16.98
An uber-rare album from Orlando Julius & The Afro Sounders – recorded at Ginger Baker's studio in Lagos and originally (apparently quite scarcely) released by Philips in 1973 – wonderful stuff and on par with the excellent material the group recorded in the handful of previous years! ... read more CD

Everloving, 2021. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Fast funk and lots of sharp riffs from Okwess – a group with roots in the Congo, but who've risen to international fame – thanks in part to their updating of older Afro Funk modes, and the strong presence of lead singer Jupinter Bokondji! The group are clearly aware of more ... read more CD

Lyncell/BBE (UK), 1982. Sealed ... $13.99
A sweet Soweto group from the start of the 80s – one who have a nice current of funk in their mix, but who also serve up some well-crafted solos on both guitar and flute! The vocals are often warmly in that more familiar South African style of the period – but the record's nicely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gramophone Company Of India (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 26.99
Brij Bhushan Kabra is handling his guitar on the cover in a very unusual way – and he gets some very unusual sounds out of the instrument too – on an incredible record that's almost a bridge between 60s Indian sitar recordings and some of the acoustic American experiments on Takoma ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An amazing setting for the groundbreaking guitar work of Brij Bhushan Kabra – set up here in a trio with Hariprasad Chaurasia on flute and Shivkumar Sharma on santoor!

These guys were a big group in Trinidad – where, according to the cover, they were the number 1 R&B group in the 70s – but they hardly cracked the US marked with this 1977 release.

Fantastic work from Omar Khorshid – definitely a giant in the 70s, due to his roles on screen – and a hell of a guitarist here, one working with a really great blend of trippy styles and Lebanese rhythms!
