Groundbreaking work from Busi Mhlongo – a real shift in South American soul at the end of the 90s, almost as if the set was marking the new sense of pride and nation that was taking place at the tip of the continent!

✨✧ Zorro FiveJump Uptight (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brigadiers/Matsuli (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
A rare set from Zorro Five – a South African group, but one who sound a bit like some of the best Italian sound library combos of the time – really stepping out in a hip blend of riffing guitar, hard drums, and organ! That aspect is maybe no surprise, given that Zorro Five were more of ... (Jazz, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hugh MasekelaLive In Lesotho ... LP
Matsuli (UK), 1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
It's a strange thing to see Hugh Masekela sitting on a horse, out in a field – and the cover hardly gets at the energy that's going on inside – since the album features a full, funky live performance from the famous trumpeter – at a time when his group included piano and keyboards ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shankar JaikishanRaga Jazz Style ... LP
EMI/Outernational (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An album that's every bit as cool as you might expect – a set that's very much in the same Indo-jazz experiments as saxophonist Joe Harriott, but with a slightly different approach overall! Although sitar is part of the instrumentation, there's also a fair bit of conventional jazz phrasing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Matsuli (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the most compelling albums we've heard from the African scene of the 70s – a rare set from a Soweto group, and one that's got a heavy dose of spiritual jazz in the mix!

Dug Out (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Hypnotic, spiritually resonant music from Rastafarian singer & hand drummer Ras Michael's Dadawah – with these organic, echoey, atmospheric drums, bass and trippy bits of keyboards – providing a strong, spacious backdrop for the freedom-seeking lyricism!

Honest Jons (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
A long-overdue collection of work – one that really gets at the unusual appearance of Latin rhythms on the African scene of the postwar years!

✨✧ SurpriseBelieve Me ... LP
Beau Monde (France), 1983. New Copy ... $29.99
A wicked bit of 80s electro soul – one that's heavy on Yamaha keyboards and beats, but which was also recorded in Gabon – which gives the whole record a very different sound than New York material of the time! The rhythms are definitely in the funky soul side of the spectrum, but have ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vampi Soul (Spain), 1980s. New Copy ... $24.99
