✨✧ Mighty SparrowHot & Sweet ... LP
Warner, 1974. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A bit late to be classic calypso, but a really stunning example of the style – recorded by Mighty Sparrow for Warner with some very hip production by Van Dyke Parks!

✨✧ Clive ZandaClive Zanda Is Here With Dat Kinda Ting (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Gayap/Cree (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 29.98
A totally great little record that refers to itself as "calypsojazz innovations" – but which is even better than that label might make you think! The groove here is hardly calypso – as it's funkier, chunkier, and a much more heavy take on inspirations from the islands than we' ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Two long grooves from the South African scene – both of them nice and funky! "Burnin Beat" is an extended number that spins out over the course of 11 minutes – a groove that never moves past midtempo clip, but does a great job of layering together basslines, guitar riffs, and ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Legendary reedman Idris Ackamoor is strongly back in action – working here with a new version of his classic Pyramids group from the 70s – with a groove that's every bit as righteous as their classic albums from back in the day! In truth, Ackamoor has been going strongly over the ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rush Hour (Netherlands), Late 80s. New Copy ... $16.99

Funky soul from the South African scene at the end of the 70s – by a group who also uses a fair bit of fuzzy guitar too!
