An album from the 80s, but one with a very timeless vibe – as the set is heavy on mbiri work from Dumisani Maraire – recorded in a way that mostly just features vocals alongside the sparkling tones of the thumb piano!

A set that's maybe a bit different than other Nigerian grooves you might know from the early 80s – as Hycento Junior has a strong influence from American hip hop, and also a bit of reggae as well! Side one of the album feels almost as if it was lifted from the same scene as Grandmaster Flash ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

IceEach Man Makes His Destiny (aka Ice) ... LP
Kedzie, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
A really great chapter in the long and funky history of the musicians that also played in Lafayette Afro Rock Band and Cane & Abel – and a cool little set that may be one of the best records to ever come from the collective! The players work here as Ice – and come across like some ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ikebe ShakedownKings Left Behind ... LP
Colemine, 2019. New Copy ... $22.99 23.98
It's hard to imagine these kings being left behind, as the sound of Ikebe Shakedown just keeps getting bolder and more majestic with each new release – a very special strand of deep funk, with a blend of horns that you might find in a more Afro-styled band, mixed with tighter rhythms at the ...

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

Solomon Ilori & His Afro Drum EnsembleAfrican High Life ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most roosty albums on Blue Note – and a fairly straight session of African percussion tracks by Solomon Ilori and his Afro Drum Ensemble. Unlike similar albums by Art Blakey, this one lacks any strong sort of jazz component – and really just features fairly straight African ... 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

Hank Jones with Cheick Tidiane Seck & The MandikasSarala ... CD
Verve, 1995. Used ... $8.99
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

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 ...

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

✨✧ KabasaAfrican Sunset ... LP
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

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. The album's a combination of 70s funk and various African influences – mostly uptempo, in a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
