Shankar JaikishanRaga Jazz Style ... LP
EMI/Outernational (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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! Although sitar is part of the instrumentation, there's also a fair bit of conventional jazz phrasing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jamaica Johnny & His Milagro BoysTrinidad – The Land Of Calypso ... CD
Philips/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 22.99
Spoiler alert – Jamaica Johnny isn't from a Caribbean island, but instead was born in Suriname, and adopted his catchy moniker for a set of calypso recordings done in Amsterdam at the end of the 50s! That doesn't stop the work from being great, though – really lively numbers done as ... read more CD

Juju (Oneness Of Juju)Chapter Two – Nia ... LP
Strata East/Now Again, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 25.98
The rare second album from Juju – the avant jazz collective who'd later morph into funk band Oneness Of Juju, but who still sound pretty revolutionary here! There's a bit more focus than before – still energy that's a lot like the best righteous jazz groups coming out of Chicago or St ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Orlando Julius & The Afro SoundersOrlando Julius & The Afro Sounders ... CD
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

KabasaAfrican Sunset ... LP
Lyncell/BBE (UK), 1982. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99 28.99
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

Favorite (France), 2018. Used ... $9.99
A great little album from French singer Pat Kalla – an artist whose "Super Mojo" here is really the genius of producer Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart! The set is a collaboration between Pat and Patchworks – and uses the great vocals of Kalla to bring new focus to the ... read more CD
