✨✧ ShangoZulu Groove (voc,inst) ... 12-inch
Celluloid, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the better Afrika Bambatta/Bill Laswell collaborations.

Produced by Afrika Bambaataa and Material, featuring Bill Laswell on bass and percussion. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Celluloid sleeve, with a large name in marker. Labels have some pen.)

✨✧ Ted DanielZulu's Ball – Ted Daniel Plays The Music Of King Oliver ... CD
Altura, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Boo Hooray, Late 70s/Early 80s/2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 ... $9.99 11.99
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

✨✧ Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleSingles (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Zulu/Midday Music, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from the legendary Phil Cohran – and a much-needed collection of his rare singles on the Zulu label! The work here is contemporary to the sides issued by Phil's Artistic Heritage Ensemble on their two famous records – but the sound is often a bit tighter, and funkier too – kind of the 45 distillation of sounds the group was working out in larger format on the full albums! As with those classics, the approach is amazing – a hip blend of jazz, soul, and African elements – very much in the spirit of Sun Ra, Cohran's predecessor on the Chicago scene – but often with a lot more groove, and a lot less avant garde elements. Players on the set include Charles Williams on alto, Don Myrick on baritone, Charles Handy on trumpet, Louis Satterfield on bass, Pete Cosey on guitar, and Henry Gibson on timbales and conga – all working at a level that easily rivals the best from Ra, Salah Ragab, Mulatu, and other space jazz legends from the time! Titles include "The African Look", "Loud Mouth", "New Frankiphone Blues", "Frankiphone Blues", "Detroit Red", "El Hajj Malik El Shabazz", and "Black Beauty". CD

Perfect Toy (Germany), 1960s/1970s/2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock

✨✧ BohannonDance Your Ass Off ... LP
Dakar, 1976. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Easy to dance your ass off with music this great – a fast, firey form of funk that's very much in the best Bohannon mode – that unique groove that was unlike anything else to hit the American scene for years to come! The record's a locomotive right from the start – a completely tight union of guitar, bass, drums, and just about anything else that gets into the mix – served up at a fast chugging groove that's very different than either typical funk or 70s disco! A few tracks add in a bit of extra strings, but these are always subsumed by the strong strong rhythms – and titles include the cut "Zulu", which has always been a favorite here in Chitown – plus "Party People", "Dance Your Ass Off", and "Bohannon's Theme".

Free MovementI've Found Someone Of My Own ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Very Good ... $4.99
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)".

Randy WestonSolo, Duo, & Trio – Trio & Solo/Randy Weston Plays Cole Porter In A Modern Mood ... CD
Milestone/Prestige, Mid 50s-Early 60s. Used ... $11.99
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".

VariousCan You Feel The Force – The John Luongo Disco Mixes – The Classic Original 12 Inch Extended Remixes ... CD
Groove Line Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Fantastic full length mixes from the legendary John Luongo – one of the first of the 70s underground disco mixers to bring his talents to the mainstream! John has a great ear for the right elements needed to groove up a tune – and has an especially strong love of tight percussion, and middle bits that came to be known as disco breaks – which he used often to create a new current of intensity in the middle of a tune! Luongo had been working at a relatively underground level in Boston during the mid 70s – similar to some of the original tape edit/mixers in New York – but in the late 70s, Columbia Records hired him to bring a special sort of magic to their big run of 12" singles – a good deal of which are featured in this set. The set is maybe the first we've ever seen to bring together John's great work for Columbia/CBS labels – all of it from rare 12" singles, many of which were originally issued only as promos – served up here with a huge booklet of notes on Luongo's contributions, with comments by artists who include Marlena Shaw, Santana, The Real Thing, Cerrone, and Melba Moore. Titles include classic long Luongo mixes of "Shake Your Body" by The Jacksons, "Shine On Silver Moon" by Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr, "Can You Feel The Force" by The Real Thing, "Pick Me Up I'll Dance" by Melba Moore, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman with Loleatta Holloway, "Music Is My Way Of Life" by Patti Labelle, "This Time Baby" by Jackie Moore, "Gone Gone Gone" by Johnny Mathis, "In These Changing Times" by Mighty Clouds Of Joy, "Dance To The Music" by Sly Stone, "Blame It On The Boogie" by The Jacksons, "Zulu" by The Quick, "I Will Fight" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "You Stepped Into My Life" by Melba Moore, "Just A Feeling" by Stanley Clarke, "On Our Way" by Southern Exposure, "Candy From Your Baby" by Sarah Dash, "Walk Right Now" by The Jacksons, and "One Chain" by Santana.

FTG, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $13.99 14.98
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.

✨✧ Steve GrossmanSome Shapes To Come ... LP
PM, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautifully choppy jazz from Steve Grossman and his legendary 70s comrades Gene Perla and Don Alias – one of the heaviest hitting American combos of the time! The trio have a tight fusion sound that's as full-on as it is funky – and Grossman blows some amazing work on tenor and soprano sax that cut into the tunes with a really fierce bite – while Perla delivers these round, powerful basslines – and Don Alias alternates between free percussion and some driving funky drums! For this session, the group's joined by Jan Hammer on electric piano and moog, playing in a nicely restrained fashion that's not nearly as overblown as his later work, and which jams into the groove just perfectly – making for a sweet electric set that's a real standout of the 70s. The set includes the breakbeat track "Zulu Stomp", plus "Alodian Mode", "Haresah", and "Extemporaneous Combustion". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Horace SilverSilver N Percussion ... LP
Blue Note, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent 70s album from Horace Silver – one that's often overlooked, but which yields of listening joy, once you open it up! The set's got some wonderful modal/spiritual numbers – in a mode that would make the record highly prized if it were issued on Strata East, and which is pretty darn great for Blue Note at the time – easily one of Silver's most righteous moments of the late 70s! The percussion promised in the title really stands out – and helps shape the rhythms with an even more exotic feel than usual – but the set also cooks with some great horn solos too – trumpet by Tom Harrell and tenor by Larry Schneider – both players whose arcing lines really help add a lot of color to the grooves. The whole thing's great – proof that Silver never stopped growing as an artist – and titles include "The Aztec Sun God", "The Mohican & The Great Spirit", "The Gods Of The Yoruba", and "The Spirit Of The Zulu".

✨✧ Hugh Masekela & OthersHugh Masekela Presents The Chisa Years 1965 to 1976 – Rare & Unreleased ... LP
Chisa/BBE (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99 27.98
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)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
