Herb Alpert & Hugh MasekelaHerb Alpert & Hugh Masekela ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1978. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Two top trumpet talents – coming together beautifully on this groovy late 70s set! Both Herb Alpert and Hugh Masekela had a big rise to fame in the 60s – Herb, for his Tijuana Brass albums on A&M – and Hugh, for the way that he brought South African jazz currents to the American soul mainstream! Given that both had strong presence on the Cali scene in their time, the pairing here is a great one – and works well with some larger jazz backings that color things out in a mix of soul, fusion, funk, and some slight South African touches. Other players on the set include Lee Ritenour and Arthur Adams on guitars, Paulinho Da Costa on percussion, James Gadson on bass, and Hotep Cecil Bernard on piano – and titles include "Skokiaan", "Moonza", "Lobo", "African Summer", "Ring Bell", and "Happy Hanna".

Herb Alpert & Hugh MasekelaMain Event Live ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1978. New Copy Gatefold ... $7.99 11.98
Masterful live set by Herb Alpert and Hugh Masekela – recorded at The Roxy in LA in 1978! Both their studio record from the same year and this massive live recording work incredibly well – as they're both geniuses at blending distinctive global influences – but they really cook in this live session in a way that's smoothed over a bit in the studio! Herb is on trumpet and Hugh is on flugelhorn – and the group features Mosa Jonas Gwangwa on trombone, with Larry Willis on keys, Arthur Adams and Jeff Sigman on guitars, Manola Badrena on percussion, Buddy WIlliams on drums and David Williams on bass,. Includes "Foreign Natives", "People Make The World Go Round", "Besame Mucho", "Mama Way", "Kalahari Nights", "Shame The Devil", "Mama Way" and "I'm Comin' Home". CD

A compilation of some of Masekela's more famous tunes. Most of the songs are composed by Masekela but they also include tracks like Jobim's "Felicidade" and Webb's "Up-Up & Away". The record contains "Grazing In The Grass", "Coincidence", "Chisa", "Song Of Ice Bag", "Riot", "If There's Anybody Out There", and "Bajabula Bonke (The Healing Song)". LP, Vinyl record album

Hugh MasekelaColonial Man ... LP
Casablanca, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A later album from Hugh Masekela – but still plenty darn hip, way more so than most of the other artists on the Casablanca label at the time! Hugh's South African groove is still very firmly in place here – mixed with a slightly warmer LA soul sound, but expanded with loads of great arrangements that get a lot more complicated than before – and which bring in some great keyboard and percussion bits. Sivuca makes a wonderful appearance on 2 tracks – using that blend of voice and accordion that sounds so great – and the whole record's got a depth and sense of soul that you'd never guess from it's silly title and cover! Titles include "Colonial Man", "Song For Brazil", "Vasco Da Gama", "For The Love Of You", "Witch Doctor", and "Cecil Rhodes". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Thumb, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold ... $16.99
Like Hugh Masekela's other records on Blue Thumb, this is a totally great bit of Afro funk, with a good hard groove filled with tight jazz playing, and some nice choppy rhythm that feels like it belongs on a Fela record. Great stuff played by his tight little Hedzoleh Soundz group, with the cuts "Kaa Ye Oya", "Patience", "When", "Adade", and "Languta". LP, Vinyl record album

Uni, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $2.99
The tenor of the times is in the title of this one – as "Riot" is a darker number than some of Hugh's other hits, but no less funky, with a brace of trumpets blaring over the top, and chunky beats that have that great scatter shot sound of his Uni work! "Mace" is a brilliant tune too – slowly exploding, with a bit of vocals, and heavenly trumpet that really makes the cut sparkle! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hugh MasekelaStill Grazing – The Musical Journey Of Hugh Masekela ... CD
Blue Thumb, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $5.99
A nicely-done overview of the best work of South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela – featuring tracks from his groundbreaking years at the Chisa, Uni, and Blue Thumb labels! The tracks bring together South African rhythms with a buoyant, celebratory approach to soul jazz – cut by Masekela with influences from the burning LA scene of the late 60s, and recorded with a soulful finish that works as well on the set's longer, more complicated tracks, as it does on the shorter groovier tunes! 11 tracks in all, with titles that include "Mace & Grenades", "Ha Lese Le Di Khanna", "Child Of The Earth", "Gold", "Languta", "Stimela", "Been Such A Long Time Gone", and "Bajabula Bonke".

(Out of print. CD case has a small cutout hole.)

✨✧ Hugh MasekelaGrrr ... CD
Verve/Mercury, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great early work from Hugh Masekela! The record features all instrumental tracks – all short, and with Hugh's funky South African trumpet rolling over the top! The overall sound is a lot less slick than on some of his late 60s hits – and you can really hear his roots in the South African jazz scene on this one. The tracks are spare, with a strong jazz component – and dancing piano lines behind the raspy and soulful trumpet and trombone solos that dominate much of the record. Titles include "U-Dwi", "Sharpville", "Sipho", "Kwa-Blaney", and "Mra". Don't pass this one up – because it's great! CD

One of the funkier albums by African trumpeter Hugh Masekela, and a record that's filled with lots of short little groovers that have more of an edge than on previous pop instrumental albums – much more of the hard funky vibe of the Chisa years!

An excellent little record from Hugh Masekela – cut right during that perfect time when he was mixing soul, funk, and just the right amount of jazz to keep things real! The record features some nice electric piano from Joe Sample, and the best cuts have a choppy funky groove. Some cuts have vocals, but the best moments are instrumental – like the riffs on "Jungle Jim", "Night In Tunisia", and "In The Marketplace". LP, Vinyl record album

Betty DavisColumbia Years – 1968/1969 ... LP
Light In The Attic/Columbia, Late 60s. New Copy ... $22.99 23.99
A soul and funk fan's dream come true – never-heard recordings by the legendary Betty Davis, done for Columbia Records a few years before her debut album! At the time, Betty was hanging with Miles Davis, and turning him onto the sounds of fuzzy funk – and Miles actually produced these recordings, and used instrumentation from key associates like Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Wayne Shorter on reeds, and John McLaughlin on guitar – plus the mighty Larry Young on keyboards! The whole thing's amazing – every bit as great as Betty's work for the Just Sunshine label, but maybe even grittier – and with this unbridled vibe that's totally wonderful – and we're stunned that this is the first we're hearing of this music – but are mighty happy it's finally seen the light of day. A few cuts also feature Davis with The Crusaders and Hugh Masekela – for a groovy Cali soul sort of vibe – and titles include "It's My Life", "Hangin Out", "Politician Man", "Down Home Girl", "I'm Ready Willing & Able", "Born On The Bayou", and "Live Love Learn".

Eric GaleBlue Horizon ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Smooth fusion from guitarist Eric Gale – Blue Horizon is a focused record with a style that's still relatively smooth, yet a bit more in the mode that we like on Gale's 70s work. The core group features some nice keyboards from Peter Schott and drums from Freddie Waits – and Hugh Masekela guests on flugelhorn on a bit of the album. Tracks have a solidly fusion-based approach, yet are relaxedly soulful, never with too much jamming – and titles include "When Tokyo", "Clock A Pa", "Call Me At The Same Number", "97th & Columbus", "Wait Until The City Sleeps", "Blue Horizon", and "Mako D'Amour".

Jazzanova & OthersRemixes 2006 to 2016 (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 27.99
Jazzanova are maybe best remembered for their early Compost Records releases from the German scene – tracks that really helped reintroduce jazz and Brazilian modes to the contemporary dancefloors back in the 90s! In the years since those now-classic releases, Jazzanova have moved more strongly towards a role as remixers, lending their strong sense of history and sonic depth towards a range of other artists – often with an approach that really transforms the original tune, and makes the whole thing feel like a fresh Jazzanova track! This collection of work from a decade in the studio really lives up as a strong testament to that role – and showcases the Jazzanova touch on sublime cuts that include "Ordinary Guy (Jazzanova rework ext version)" by Joe Bataan, "Naze (Jazzanova rmx)" by Spinning Motion, "Believer (Jazzanova rmx)" by Paul Randolph, "Skybreaks (Jazzanova rmx)" by Heritage Orchestra, "Parallels (Jazzanova serial rmx)" by Atjazz with Dawne B, "Listen To The Drums (Jazzanova rmx)" by Outlines, "Dimentica Domani (Jazzanova rmx dub)" by Malika Ayane, and "Stimela (Jazzanova rmx)" by Hugh Masekela.

Blue MitchellBantu Village ... CD
Blue Note/Soul Brother (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the funkiest albums ever on Blue Note – a set that mixes the trumpet talents of Blue Mitchell with some killer backings from Monk Higgins – all in a groove that more gritty edges than the best funky soundtracks of the time! Higgins keeps the backings full, but always quite lean – fusing all elements together into a sharp, tight rhythm that steps along with some of the slight African touches you might guess from the title – a groove that's not really that authentic, but which resonates with some of the best inspirations that Hugh Masekela was bringing to American music at the time. And while the album might be an attempt to cash in on Masekela's groove, the feel here is really quite different overall – as tracks are nicely stretched out, with plenty of room for jazzy solo work – and a groove that's much harder overall, thanks to Higgins! Other players include Freddy Robinson on guitar, Wilton Felder on bass, Paul Humphrey on drums, and Plas Johnson on tenor – and titles include "HNIC", "Flat Backing", "Na Ta Ka", "Bantu Village", and "Blue Dashiki".

Funky LP from Monk, with nice tight electric bass playing, and groovy arrangements by Wayne Henderson, who also produced the LP. The record's got a nice mix of soul instrumentals and jazzy bits, with a similar feel to some of the other stuff on the Chisa label at the time. Tracks include "Big Boy", "Your Love", "Bluesette", "It's Never Too Late", "My Cherie Amour", and "The Lady", which was arranged by Hugh Masekela. LP, Vinyl record album

One of the few funky albums ever cut as a leader by Larry Willis – a super-hip keyboard player who's best known for his work with Jackie McLean and Hugh Masekela, but who sounds even better as a leader! This album's a gem all the way through – with a free-thinking soulful sound that's head and shoulders above the rest of the work on Groove Merchant at the time. Players include Harold Vick, Roland Prince, and Eddie Gomez – and the overall groove is an incredible array of soulful rhythms, played by Larry on electric piano, in a mode that makes the record feel like a lost gem from Strata East or Black Jazz. Includes the cuts "Out On The Coast", "153rd Street Theme", "Inner Crisis", and "Bahamian Street Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Duke LumumbaJungle Funk ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Do yourself a favor, and buy this album – you won't be disappointed! The record is a gem all the way through – a really unique mixture of LA soul jazz and African rhythms, with a sound that's almost like Hugh Masekela sitting in with the Jazz Crusaders! Of course, there's a lot of Jazz Crusaders in the set – as Wilton Felder plays electric bass on the album, giving it a fantastic loping groove – but there's also plenty of unique albums on the record, especially its way of approaching the rhythms with a sly, syncopated groove that's immediately infectious! Duke's trumpet solos are great, and they're augmented by tenor work by Chester Washington and trombone by George Bohannon – all nicely grooving on the album's brilliant blend of jazzy tracks. Titles include "Jungle Funk", "Afrikaloo", "Akagruge", "Like It Is", "Mafam", and "Peace Brother". Somebody put this one on CD – and do us all a treat! LP, Vinyl record album

Ubuntu (Netherlands), Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe our favorite volume so far in this excellent series – a set that focuses on early 60s work from South Africa, with a vibe that really showcases that great sound that would soon explode globally – as artists like Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba got wider exposure! Yet the music here is hardly as commercial as sounds from those two – as the overall production and presentation is nice and rootsy – lively rhythms topped with jazzy instrumentation and these especially wonderful vocals that dip, turn, soar, and fly – all at a level that would become cliche in the world music boom decades later, but which still sounds beautiful here at the roots. All tracks were hand-picked from the archives of the International Library Of African Music – and titles include "Nylon" and "Intogeymy" by The Lower Buttons, "Seven Stiches" and "Rock Phata 1001" by Kid Ma Wrong Wrong, "Lulu Part 4" by Bra Sello, "Mangothobane" and "Wamuhle Lomfana" by Flying Jazz Queens, "Kudala Ngizula" by Cowboy Superman & His Cowboy Sisters, and "Nice Time" by Que Sisters.

✨✧ Johnny NashTears On My Pillow ... CD
Columbia/RPM (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great mix of the Caribbean roots of Johnny Nash and some of the sweeter soul sounds of the US scene in the 70s – recorded both at Sigma Sound in Philly, and back down in Jamaica! Nash has some great help on the set – most famously from Bob Marley, who contributed a few original songs to the record – but also from Philly soul producer Bunny Sigler, who arranged some of the album along with Norman Harris and Ronnie Baker! As you might guess, we're biggest fans of these Philly tracks – and they show that Nash's vocals can really sound great in a smoother, more contemporary setting – but the Bob Marley numbers are pretty good too, and are more soul than the reggae you might expect. Other guests include Hugh Masekela on trumpet and Vince Montana on vibes – and titles include "Why Did You Do It", "The Edge Of Love", "Tears On My Pillow", "Reggae's On Broadway", "Mellow Mood", "Let's Be Friends", "Cream Puff", "Say It Ain't True", and "Rock It Baby".
