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

Ted DanielZulu's Ball – Ted Daniel Plays The Music Of King Oliver ... CD
Altura, 2017. Used ... $9.99
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

VariousSouth African Funk Experience –- Zulu, Funky Disco, Shebeen Jive, Jo 'Burg Funk, Spiritual Jazz Dance , Shangaan & More ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used ... $9.99
An excellent collection of funky tracks from South Africa – most of them with a slightly different feel than work you'd get on other Afro Funk compilations – and we mean that in a good way, too! Some of the artists are names you'd recognize from later recordings of the big South African crossover years of the 80s and 90s – but they're represented here by harder, edgier cuts from the early days – and mixed up with some more obscure acts, too – which really helps bring a freshness to the set, especially given the interweaving of genres that goes on – as you might guess from the extended sub-title of the CD! Titles include "Sangoma" by Malombo, "Oh Yeh Soweto" by Teaspoon & The Waves, "Intombi Ibhinca Isidwaba" by Phuzushukela, "Kikzelani" by Nelcy Sedibe, "Hula Hoop Jive" by Kataki, "Andromeda" by Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath, "Malume" by Abafakasi, "Baloyi" by Dudu Pukwana & Spear, "Lily's Express" by Gwigwi Mrwebi, "Wozan Mahipi" by Mahlathini & Mahotella Queens, and "Bayeza" by Soul Brothers.

✨✧ FocusZulu EP ... 12-inch
Crown Ruler (Australia), 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Electro soul from the Johannesburg – a trio of tracks that's a fair bit different than most of the South African material you might know from the time! "Hay Hay" is a real beat street sort of track – Linn drum beats and Roland keyboards, percolating in a very catchy groove – with lyrics that mostly just repeat the title phrase in rising and descending ways! "Rock Batlanga" picks up the bassline a bit more, but also kicks in more keys too – which makes for a nice bit of electro funk – and "Moger" has some lean rhythm programs at points, topped by tenor and some warmer keyboards! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ember (UK), 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
Zulu is pulled from a colonial period film that starred Michael Caine, and about half the score is straight orchestral scoring – dramatic music to set the mode of the narrative – but the other half are more African-sounding numbers, handled by Barry with a colonialist zeal! Titles include "Wagons Over", "Big Shield", "High Grass", "Monkey Feathers", "Zulu Maid", and "Stamp and Shake". 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
(Packaged in a cool record-style sleeve.)

✨✧ Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleSpanish Suite ... CD
Zulu/Katalyst, 1968. Used ... $7.99
Great lost work from the legendary Phil Cohran and his Artistic Heritage Ensemble – a composition that was recorded during the group's late 60s years on the Chicago scene – but which has never been released until now! The album stands beautifully alongside the group's self-titled classic and their tribute to Malcolm X – and like those amazing records, this one has a feel that's all its own – an exploration of Moorish elements in Spanish culture – which comes off as a Latin-inflected sound with African roots! The lineup here is similar to other Cohran classics – Donald Myrick on baritone sax, Charles James Williams on alto, Eugene Easton on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, Aaron Dodd on tuba, Pete Cosey on guitar, Henry Gibson on congas, and Louis Satterfield on bass – a mix of musicians that includes members with Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire listed in their resumes! Cohran's vision in the suite is wonderful – and the music has all the depth and righteous energy of his self-titled record, but a bit more Latin fire too – a beautiful blend that really makes us appreciate his genius even more than before, and which finally gives us another record of his to love after all these years.

Cannibal & The HeadhuntersLand Of 1000 Dances (Date pressing) ... LP
Date, 1966. Very Good ... $19.99
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

Carlos LeeBossa Maximus ... CD
Whatmusic (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $11.99
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".

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".

Randy WestonMusic From The New African Nations Featuring The Highlife ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
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

Perfect Toy (Germany), 1960s/1970s/2000s. New Copy ... $8.99
A fresh and funky second Shake-A-Leg compilation from Perfect Toy – chronicling the styles spun at the Shake-A-Leg DJ nights, which shake up the Munich club scene on a monthly basis – with the best rare vintage and contemporary jazzy funk, Afro Beat and deep soul! You know you're in good DJ hands when the setlist plays like a 40 something year history of globetrotting, dancefloor ready jazz and funky soul – spanning the old(er) school styles of Charles Earland, Willis Jackson, Dizzy Gillespie, Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers and more, plus contemporary torch carriers such as The Qualitons, Cesar's Salad and Deep Jazz. Compiled by Jerker Kluge and Tobias Kirmayer. Includes a deep funk revisit of "Zulu Walk" by Mighty Mocambos with Afrika Bambaataa, Charlie Funk & King Kamonzi, "The Mighty Burner" by Charles Earland, "Jive Samba" by Willis Jackson", "Coincidence Of Circumstance" by Deep Jazz, "Sunny" by Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers, "Presentations' by Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra, "Unicorn" by Dizzy Gillespie, "Branded" by CJ Leach and more. 15 in all.

✨✧ BohannonDance Your Ass Off ... LP
Dakar, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of work from the great John Barry – one that focuses on his famous contributions for the James Bond films – but also includes other soundtrack and instrumental material as well! The set begins with the John Barry Plays 007 record – a brilliant album that not only features some instrumental soundtrack themes, but also includes some great mod Barry instrumentals from the 60s – kind of a nice link to his sophisticated film music, and some of his smaller combo work! Titles include "Kinky", "Fancy Dance", "007", "From Russia With Love", "Big Shield", "Aliki", "Monkey Feathers", and "The London Theme". Next are two tracks from Elizabeth Taylor In London – "Lovers & Browning", with a recitation by Taylor – plus the jazzy instrumental "The London Waltz". Next are two tracks from Zulu – a colonial period film that starred Michael Caine – followed by 15 more groovy instrumentals that include "Tit Willow Twist", "Hit & Miss", "Easy Beat", "Beat Girl", "The Lolly Theme", "Spinnerree", "Roman Spring Of Mrs Stone", "The Sun's Hooray", and "Saturday's Child".

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)".

Miriam MakebaEvening With Belafonte & Makeba/Magic Of Miriam Makeba ... CD
RCA/Collectables, 1965/1966. Used ... $5.99
2 of Miriam Makeba's mid 60s albums for RCA on one CD. The first is a live set with Harry Belafonte – whose star was falling just at the time Makeba's was rising. The set's set to backings conducted by Jonas Gwanga and Howard Roberts (the guy who led the Howard Roberts Chorale, not the funky guitar player) – and are better than you might think, with a nice degree of South African soul buried somewhere in the mix. The second album features Miriam singing a mix of standards and folksy tunes, with backings by Sid Bass that kind of cover up her righteousness, but which do allow for a few strong moments. The set's got a total of 24 tracks in all – with titles that include "Oh So Alone", "Oxgam", "Sunrise Sunset", "When I've Passed On", "Train Song", "My Angel", "Beware Verwoerd", "Hush Hush", "In The Land Of The Zulus", and "Gone Are My Children".

AK SalimAfro Soul Drum Orgy ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Near Mint- (reissue)... $8.99
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".
