Now Again, 2014. Used Gatefold ... $5.99
They definitely got the title right on this one – because the group never seems to move in any sort of direct line – instead always tripping around nicely with all these hip little twists and turns!

Little Giant/We Are Busy Bodies, 1970. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A rare South African jazz treasure – a set that's much more obscure than some of the bigger names of the scene, and which has a sound that's very different too! There's maybe a stronger American influence taking place here, especially in the rhythms, but also in the phrasing – and the ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more CD

Rotel, 1976. Used ... $14.99
Great rolling grooves from the mid 70s – a Haitian combo who work here with plenty of jazzy touches! Guitar is often layered strongly in the rhythms – in ways that link the music strongly to African highlife of the same period – with lots of lively interplay alongside the group's ... read more CD

PMG (Austria), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Sweet funky sounds from east Nigeria, circa 1980 – a great little set that's got a laidback groove, and a style that's clearly learned plenty from the hipper corners of the American funk universe! The approach is a bit like funky club at times, a bit more like some of the larger funk acts of ... read more CD

An amazing set that documents the early years of the Zamrock scene – the funk and psych informed Afro Rock pioneered by vocalist and African guitar legend Rikki Ililonga and his group Musi-O-Tunya in Zambia from 1973 to 1976 – and compiled beautifully in this great set from Now ... read more CD

A fantastic little record – served up by a group of Moroccan musicians working in New York, where they've clearly found a way to expand their sound nicely from their roots!

A much-needed slice of work from Juju – the group who later transformed into spiritual funk ensemble Oneness Of Juju! Juju only recorded two full albums in the early 70s, so this unissued live set is a key addition to their catalog – and the whole thing's got this bold quality that's ...

Everloving, 2021. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Fast funk and lots of sharp riffs from Okwess – a group with roots in the Congo, but who've risen to international fame – thanks in part to their updating of older Afro Funk modes, and the strong presence of lead singer Jupinter Bokondji! The group are clearly aware of more ... read more CD

That's a pretty trippy cover on the front, and an image that really sums up the vibe of this excellent record from Kaleta – a set that's even sharper and funkier than any of his previous efforts – yet which has some nicely way out qualities too!

A really unique project from the end of the 70s – a set that takes some of the Afro Funk energy that was bubbling in West Africa during the decade, then mixes it with some funky jazz touches arranged by the great William S Fischer! The mix of cultures comes out perfectly – with no ... read more CD
