PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... $6.99
We're not sure what's in this jungle juice, but it's clearly having a great effect on Joe Kemfa – allowing him to move and groove in a really great way – as he leads his group through a sweet later take on the sound of Lagos funk! The album's got a great blend of rhythms and some ... read more CD

A great mix of modes from Osamu Kitajima – a set that's still got some of the exotic elements of his other material, but which also brings in a stronger fusion component too – mixing Kitajima's work on guitar and koto with plenty of Fender Rhodes and other great electric touches!

Fortuna (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A nice hybrid of Mediterranean grooves from Koko – an artist born in Morocco, working in Jerusalem during the 70s, and open to a fair bit of elements from Greece as well!
