Ted DanielZulu's Ball – Ted Daniel Plays The Music Of King Oliver ... CD
Altura, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
Trumpeter Ted Daniel takes on the music of jazz founder King Oliver – but as you'd expect from all of Daniel's other groundbreaking work, the result here is something quite unique! True, the tunes are older numbers from the Oliver songbook of the 20s – but the approach is maybe a bit more freewheeling and pan-historic – a bit like the mode you'd expect if this project was handled by some of the artists on the Black Saint/Soul Note label in the early 80s. As with their work, the immediate approach is historically respectful, but the individual currents in the music really update the sound – thanks to a lineup that includes Daniel on cornet, Charlie Burnham on violin, Newman Baker on percussion, Joe Daley on tuba, and Marvin Sewell on guitar. Titles include "Tears", "Working Man's Blues", "Riverside Blues", "Mabel's Dream", "Just Gone", and "Zulu's Ball" – most taken in much longer readings than recordings from the 78rpm generation. CD

Afrika BambaataaZulu Rainin Hell Mix By Jimmy Jim ... LP
Boo Hooray, Late 70s/Early 80s/2014. New Copy ... $6.99
A fantastic treasure from the early days of hip hop – a special mix that's made completely from rare Afrika Bambaataa/Zulu Nation dub plates and acetates – cut together here by Jimmy Jim, with a feel that's just like stumbling into some South Bronx party back in the day! The limited vinyl was released as part of the Renegades Of Rhythm tour by DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist – in honor of the legendary Afrika Bambaataa! The LP features two 33 1/3 rpm sides – "Zulu Funk I" and "Zulu Funk II". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleMalcolm X Memorial (A Tribute In Music) (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Zulu/Katalyst, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant tribute to the late Malcolm X – served up by Chicago's legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble! The record's got an even farther-reaching sound than the group's self-titled effort – a flowing style that unfolds as their tribute to Malcolm rolls on – starting spare and earthy at first, then picking up a fuller, prouder, much more righteous groove as things really get going! As before, there's plenty of heavy percussion at the bottom of most tracks – topped by complicated horn passages that often verge on the exotic – and which have a tremendously captivating sound. The ensemble's led by the great Phil Cohran, who played with Sun Ra for a bit, and also plays cornet on the record – the rest of the group includes Charles Williams, Don Myrick, Louis Satterfield, Pete Cosey, Henry Gibson, Willie Woods, and Aaron Dodd – a lineup of players who also worked with Sun Ra, The Pharoahs, and Earth Wind & Fire! The LP's a suite of 4 tracks dedicated to Malcolm X, each capturing a period of his life, "Malcolm Little", "Detroit Red", "Malcolm X", and "El Hajj Malik El Shabazz". CD
(Packaged in a cool record-style sleeve.)

Cannibal & The HeadhuntersLand Of 1000 Dances (Date pressing) ... LP
Date, 1966. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the all-time Chicano Rock classics from LA – a soulful batch of party numbers from legendary east side group Cannibal & The Headhunters! The group scored big with their hit version of "Land Of 1000 Dances" – a thumping, bumping take on the tune that was a runaway single in the 60s – and which set the tone for the rest of their tunes, all done in a brown-eyed soul mode that often offered a new take on better known hits of the 60s! Titles include "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Out Of Sight", "My Girl", "Searchin", "Shotgun", and "Zulu King". Also includes "The Headhunters' Dance Party", and lots more! LP, Vinyl record album

Free MovementI've Found Someone Of My Own ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Very Good ... $5.99
Righteous soul from The Free Movement – a mixed male/female harmony group with a feel that's similar to The Fifth Dimension or The Friends Of Distinction, but a bit hipper! The group have a sunny feel that's quite nice – soaring harmonies reaching to the top of the groove on the best cuts, rolling around in a positive, soulful style that still holds up strongly over the years. Arrangements are by Michael Omartin, Jimmie Haskell, and Toxey French – and the record includes their hit "I've Found Someone Of My Own", plus "Son of The Zulu King", "Where Do We Go From Here", and "The Harder I Try (The Bluer I Get)". LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCannMcCanna ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1964. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A great Latin groove from the mighty Les McCann – a smoking set that adds in extra percussion from Willie Correa – who gives the record a sound that's quite a change from the usual McCann groove! The percussion is wonderful throughout – and given that the great Paul Humphrey is already playing drums in the trio, the whole thing's got a rhythmic zest that never lets up – way different than just the usual "with conga" style you'd hear on a Prestige Records piano trio record – and instead a groove that's definitely dedicated to the boldest Latin piano modes of the time! The track list includes a lot of originals, such as "McCanna", "Zulu", "Bastuto Baby", "Shaam-Pu II", and "Narobi Nights" – plus versions of "Que Rico" and "It Had Better Be Tonight".

Independent Project/Sordide Sentimental (France), 1982. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An incredible early album from the LA scene – more UK post-punk, with a definite Joy Division influence, than anything else taking place on the west coast at the time! The album was reportedly recorded in a parking garage, and definitely has a dark sound to match – and titles include "Attempted Coup Madagascar", "The Ivory Coast", "Next To Nothing", "Zulu Zulu", "Real Men", and "When All Else Fails".

The vaults are open again, and the folks at FTG have done another amazing job of pulling together rare soul tracks from their massive catalog of reissues! FTG focus here mostly on vintage Sony/RCA material – and the 3CD package features a great mix of 70s and 80s soul – tunes that include a fair bit of classics from back in the day – some of which were hits, some that were only appreciated even more strongly in later years! 3CD set features 39 tracks in all – and titles include "I Love Music (Tom Moulton mix)" by The O'Jays, "Get Away (12" version)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Zulu (12" version)" by The Quick, "On Target (12" mix)" by Jones Girls, "Groovin You (7" mix)" by Harvey Mason, "Lay It On Me" by Heatwave, "Dancin" by Grey & Hanks, "I'm In Love (single)" by Evelyn Champagne King, "Love Zone (ext)" by Billy Ocean, "Buttercup (rmx)" by Carl Anderson, "Finesse (rmx)" by Glenn Jones, "We Go A Long Way Back (12" mix)" by Bloodstone, "Penny For Your Thoughts (single)" by Tavares, "COD" by Mtume, "Nothing Like A Slow Dance" by Skool Boyz, "Programmed For Love (12" ext)" by Roy Ayers, "It's Over Now (special version)" by Luther Vandross, "Sanctified Lady (ext)" by Marvin Gaye, "Stop To Love (special version)" by Luther Vandross, "Jack Your Body (club your body)" by JM Silk, "So Many Tears (cool mix)" by Regina Belle, "Cry Of The Lonely (club house mix)" by JM Silk, "Happy (12" rmx)" by Surface, and "Star Search (Shep Pettibone mix)" by Mico Wave.

✨✧ Randy WestonSolo, Duo, & Trio – Trio & Solo/Randy Weston Plays Cole Porter In A Modern Mood ... CD
Milestone/Prestige, Mid 50s-Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two of Randy's Weston's earliest albums – both recorded in the mid 50s, and briefly (and rarely) issued on the Riverside label. The album's feature Weston playing in a very spare setting – as only 5 of the tracks feature a trio (with Art Blakey on drums and Sam Gill on bass), and another 8 feature Weston and Gill musing intimately on some Cole Porter compositions. The remaining 5 tracks feature Weston solo, on standards and original tunes – and the titles on the set include "Zulu", "Pam's Waltz", "Solemn Meditation", "Again", "Lover", "I Love You", "Night & Day", "Get Out Of Town", and "Softness".

✨✧ Randy WestonMusic From The New African Nations Featuring The Highlife ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic Randy Weston album – and one of the albums that really showed the world all the new ideas he was cooking up in jazz! The style is very much as promised by the title – as drawn from African inspiration as his previous Uhuru Afrika record – but much more fused towards an American jazz idiom – at a level that makes Weston a key precursor to so much righteous music to come, much of it inspired by the same wave of African independence. Melba Liston handled the arrangements – and definitely deserves a lot of credit for the success of the set – and other hip players include Budd Johnson on soprano sax, Booker Ervin on tenor, and Ray Copeland on trumpet. Titles include the crucial original recordings of Weston classics like "Congolese Children", "Blues to Africa", and "Niger Mambo" –plus "Zulu", "In Memory Of", and "Mystery of Love". CD

✨✧ Carlos LeeBossa Maximus ... CD
Whatmusic (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Quite different than the usual bossa session – in that Carlos Lee sings with a lot more depth and emotion! The style of the songs is a mixture of sweet, jazzy, and romantic – stepping into groovers at just the right moment, but also offering a deeper range of styles, in the manner of Geraldo Vandre, Nara Leao, and early work by Edu Lobo. Lee's vocals are wonderful – proud yet thoughtful, strong yet sincere, and very different than those you'd expect to hear on most other albums of this nature. A real winner, with a dark edge that hints at some of the changes to come in 70s MPB – and with titles that include "Zulu", "Meu Rio", "Cantinguinha", "Capoeira De Oxala", "Voce Me Conquitsou", and "Quarta Feira".

Hugh Masekela & OthersHugh Masekela Presents The Chisa Years 1965 to 1975 – Rare & Unreleased ... CD
Chisa/BBE (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $13.99
A decade's worth of groundbreaking funk and African rhythms – all of it recorded by Hugh Masekela for his legendary Chisa label! Back in the 60s, Hugh cracked the American charts with a playful version of South African jazz – but he was also an even hipper cat than you'd guess from his hits, and worked with a variety of incredible acts to expand his sound – a good number of whom ended up recording for Hugh on the Chisa label, in a unique blend of American soul and African inspiration that was years ahead of its time! The Chisa sound was one of the first true forays into pan-global grooving – and it brought the sounds of Africa to the American mainstream at a level that few had managed before. Some groups were unique projects done for record – like the Johannesburg Street Band, which featured members of The Crusaders alongside Masekela – but others featured a variety of ex-patriots living in the US, with key singers and players who shine brightly under Hugh's guidance. This set really digs deep, and offers up some of the most heavily African-tuned tracks from Chisa's catalog – 14 titles that include "Witch Doctor" and "Ahvuomo" by Baranta with Miatta Fahinbulleh, "Joala" and "Za Labalaba" by The Zulus, "Awe Mfana" by Johannesburg Street Band, "Macongo" and "U Se Mcani" by Letta Mbulu, "Tepo" by Baranta, "Aredze" by The Zulus, "Mahlalela" by Letta Mbulu, and "Afro Beat Blues" by Ojah with Hugh Masekela.

AK SalimAfro Soul Drum Orgy ... LP
Prestige, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Incredible! This is a stunning set of African-inspired jazzy percussion tracks – similar to some of the work done by Art Blakey on his Orgy In Rhythm albums, but with a lot better horn work, and with an overall conception that's much more unified! AK Salim did some sleepier work for Savoy in the 50s – but by the time of this 1965 recording, he was emerging as a progressive composer with a strong talent for bringing together disparate moods and styles. This rare recording was one of his best works ever, and it's one of the most unusual sides cut by Prestige in the 60s. It features Johnny Coles, Pat Patrick, and Yusef Lateef out front on horns – plus backing by a host of Latin and African percussionists. Tracks are very long – and the reed work of Lateef and Patrick makes the set especially worthwhile for jazz listeners. Titles include "Afrika", "Kumuamkia Mzulu", and "Pepo Za Sarari". LP, Vinyl record album
