✨✧ Orlando JuliusLove, Peace, & Happiness ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
An unusual album from Afro Funk legend Orlando Julius – in that it was recorded in the US, and definitely has the groove to match! The style here is right up there with the best American underground funk of the time – and the record has a groove that really mixes up African roots and more conventional funky instrumentation – maybe a bit like the Lafayette Afro Rock Band at their best, with a really freewheeling approach to rhythm, and as much strength on the instrumentation as the vocals! The back cover has a picture of Julius and his Ashiko group looking very badass in Oakland – and the vibe of the album really lives up to that photo – on cuts that include "Get The Funk", "Ashiko", "Crystal Pleasure", "Oyetoff Super Hot", and "Awade". LP, Vinyl record album

Family AtlanticaCosmic Unity ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
The title certainly gets it right – as there's a strongly unified sense of spirit here from Family Atlantica – even more so than on their debut album! As before, there's a range of global elements moving through the mix – currents of South American and African styles, given a slightly more contemporary European presentation – but somehow these guys have really found a way to put everything together with an even tighter, more cohesive sound – one that expands through jazzy solo work on tenor, alto, trumpet, and trombone – and which really draws a lot from the wide range of percussion and other instrumentation used by co-leader Jack Yglesias. The lovely Luzmira Zerpa handles most of the vocals – and some percussion too – and the album also features guest appearances from 70s legends Orlando Julius on tenor and Marshal Allen on alto sax. Titles include "Baiao Infinito", "Near The Ocean", "Efik", "Cosmic Unity", "Canto De Pilon", "El Rio", "Cacao", "Okoroba", and "Neti Neti". CD
Also available Cosmic Unity (with bonus download) ... LP 16.99

King Ayisoba1000 Can Die ... CD
Glitterbeat (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
New work from this legendary Ghanian singer – an artist who also plays the guitar-like kologo, but in the company of a fierce amount of percussion! The album's got an approach that really comes on strong – mixing older modes with a slightly contemporary crackle – a bit like the shifting of scenes and generations you'd hear in the music of Tony Allen in recent years, but with a different vibe overall! The drums come on nice and strong on most numbers, and there's a slight electric crackle at times too – creating a mix with the acoustic elements that's really great. The album features guest appearances from Lee Scratch Perry and Orlando Julius – but honestly, the whole thing's great enough at the core, with work from the King and his combo. Titles include "Ndeema", "Yalma Dage Wanga", "Wine Lange", "Africa Needs Africa", "1000 Can Die", and "Wekana". CD

Ronald SnijdersNelson & Djosa Sessions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
V2 (Netherlands), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
New music from the amazing Ronald Snijders – a Dutch flute player who made some incredibly funky records in the 70s – and really recreates that vibe here! Back in the day, Snijders was almost like the European version of Bobbi Humphrey – and worked in a similar sort of flow to her excellent albums on Blue Note – and here, Ronald's in exactly the same groove – as if the years haven't passed at all, as he slides his instrument in alongside help from a wonderful array of other guests – including Dwight Trible and Ed Motta on vocals, Orlando Julius on tenor, Avishai Cohen on trumpet, Malcolm Catto on drums, and even members of the group Azymuth! The whole thing's wonderful – righteous and spiritual, yet funky too – with titles that include "Lenox", "Funky Flute", "Mali Funk", "Kasekojazz", "Easy Man", "Busy Street", and "Madiba". LP, Vinyl record album
