Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy ... $7.99
Nothing frou frou about this heavy little set – as the record's a rock solid batch of African rhythms, served up with a distinctively Ethiopian feel – at a level that's even groovier than the group's first album! The collective clearly take some key inspiration from the more ... read more CD

Gayap/Cree (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 29.98
A totally great little record that refers to itself as "calypsojazz innovations" – but which is even better than that label might make you think! The groove here is hardly calypso – as it's funkier, chunkier, and a much more heavy take on inspirations from the islands than we' ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album
