Afropentatonism
Piranha (Germany), 2020.
LP ... On July 10, 2020
A great blend of Saharan and Ethiopian guitar styles – the former played by Alhousseini Anivolla, the latter by Girum Mezmur – working together here in a set of intertwining solos and nicely snakey grooves! There's a really seductive feel to the record, right from the start – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Allen

Source
Blue Note (France), 2017.
LP ... About July 24, 2020
One of the coolest records in years from the legendary Tony Allen – and that's saying a lot, given that his legacy includes famous work as a drummer with Fela Kuti, and a much more recent run of very experimental recordings! This set has Tony soaring out on Blue Note – and working with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Okko/Survival Research (Italy), Early 70s.
LP ... About August 20, 2020
They sure got the title right on this one – as the album's a mad mix of sitar music and electronics! The set was recorded in Germany in the 70s, and it features Okko Bekker on both the moog and sitar – playing in a small group with Herb Geller on flute, and some extra guitar work on a ...

Mango/Soul Makossa (France), 1980. (reissue)
LP ... About September 15, 2020
Not "Soul Makossa", but also not a bad album of afro funk featuring Manu Dibango's usual squealing soprano sax, plus Fender Rhodes and vibes. Recorded in Jamaica, with a bit of a Carribean feel, and the tracks "Frozen Soul", "Doctor Bird", and "Full Up". LP, Vinyl record album

LP ... About June 1, 2020 (delayed)
You might know "Soul Makossa" – the worldwide hit by Manu Dibango that was covered by many folks, and sampled heavily in later years too – but this set takes a look at the deeper scene behind that famous groove, through a host of wickedly funky tracks from the late 70s scene ... LP, Vinyl record album

Edikanfo – Super African Band

Pace Setters
EG/Glitterbeat (Germany), 1981. (reissue)
LP ... About May 6, 2020 (delayed)
A pretty strong Afro Funk act from Ghana – one that probably got more exposure than usual, thanks to the fact that they were taken under the wing of Brian Eno, who produced the album, in a tradition that would stretch back to Ginger Baker's work with Fela. The tracks are all pretty strong, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lui

Lui
P-Vine (Japan), 1978. (reissue)
LP ... About June 17, 2020 (delayed)
A rare bit of soul from the Hawaii scene of the 70s – and like some of the best of the genre, a record that's definitely got some influence from the warm Cali soul scene of the time, but which also brings plenty of its own style to play! The guitar lines have a nicely chromatic vibe, maybe ... LP, Vinyl record album
