Walter Gavitt FergusonLegendary Tape Recordings Vol 2 – The King Of Calypso Limonense ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $26.99
Not the kind of calypso that was issued by the big American labels in the 50s – and instead, sounds that have a sound, style, and overall approach that's maybe a lot more similar to American blues from the rural scene! The tracks here are all pulled from the personal archive of Walter Gavitt Ferguson – recorded mostly at his home, on cassette, over the space of many years in which Ferguson was growing in international fame, even while never leaving the space of his island. Recording quality is nice and raw – of the sort you'd be more likely to hear from rural Mississippi or Georgia bluesmen in some 60s ethnographic project – and the guitar phrasing is as biting as Walter's delivery of the lyrics. Titles on this second volume include "Not A Pugilist", "Roberto Tour", "You Cannot Bathe A Puss", "Hoorah For Paula", "Lock Me Up Neighbour", "One Pants Tearing Off", "Gal Must Be Take Me For A Fool", and "All Going Up To Glory".

Malawian Madalitso BandWasalala ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $26.99
Malawian Madalitso are more of a duo than a band – Yobi Maligwa on babatoni and lead vocals, and Yosefe Kalenkeni on guitar and percussion – both working together with a beautiful sense of tightness and melody! The mix of stringed instruments is great – pulsating with an inherent sense of rhythm that only gets better once the vocals come into play, especially when Yosefe harmonizes along with the lead. The sound is spare and timeless, yet also very vibrant as well – on titles that include "Naphiri", "Vina Vina Malawi", "Nambewe", "Wasalala", "Moyo Wa Lelo", "Chinakulaka", and "Mita".

VariousSoul Sega Sa Vol 2– Indian Ocean Segas From The 70s ... CD
Bongo Joe (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... About January 15, 2020 (delayed)
Amazing sounds from a scene we're just beginning to know – the sega music of the islands Mauritius, Seychelles and Reunion Island – all located in a very unique cultural cross-current in the Indian Ocean! The music here is often relatively spare and rootsy – guitars that are amplified, but with the rawness of early electric blues – matched by percussion that's stark, and often moving in rhythms that are relatively laidback – so that the snakier elements in the guitars and vocals are able to slide and move over the top in really seductively open ways! There's also occasional keyboards and other instrumental touches – the modes of the tracks here are relatively varied, but still really work well together – and as with the first volume, the whole thing's a huge musical discovery that's really opened up our ears. Titles include "Pas Bisin Batte Li" by Harold Berty, "Assez Pleure" by Los Fantasios, "Fair L'Amour Pas La Guerre" by Jean Claude Gaspard, "Zanguille 4 Coleurs" by Michelle Admette, "To Crier La Misere" by Claudio, "Trouloulou" by George Armel, "A Cause Sa Cyclone La" by Serge Lebrasse, and "Malheur L'Arac" by John Wirtz.

VariousCoolsville Vol 2 – Ten Inches Of Mean Sleaze & Kookie Far Out Bongo Blasters (10 inch LP) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Hipster sounds from the pre-hippie years – tracks that were either recorded by beatniks, or which have a very cool beat-themed style to them – all pulled together from a range of rare recordings at the end of the 50s and the start of the 60s! The sound here is maybe what you'd guess from the very groovy cover – a bit of jazz, and a bit of wit as well – tunes that poke a bit of fun at the intellectual underground, especially as it collides with the more mainstream sound of rock and roll – served up here on a dozen fab platters that sound even better in the company of each other! The album's divided up into a "mean side" and "bongo beatin side" – and titles include "Jet Black" by The Shadows, "Bongo Beating Beatnik" by Joe Hall & The Corvettes, "Goatee" by Joey Warren, "Theme From Von Hutch" by Jerry Madison & The Spacemen, "The Toast" by The Champs, "Money Money" by Benny Joy, "Gargantua" by Piltdown Men, and "Back Beat No 1" by The Rondels.

Willie ColonEl Juicio ... CD
Fania, 1972. Used ... $11.99
Supposedly the end of Willie Colon's early "crime" career – as the title and cover imply that he's finally been brought to trial! Don't worry about Willie being beaten down, though, because the music on the album is every bit as fierce and powerful as ever – and features a number of long tracks that really stretch out in a highly percussive groove! The group's great – with Jose Mangual on bongos, Joe Torres on piano, and Milton Cardona on conga – as well as Hector Lavoe still in the lead on vocals. Titles include "Aguanile", "Pan y Agua", "Seguire Sin Ti", "Timbalero", "Pirana", "Ah Ah O No", "Si La Ves", and "Sonando Despierto". CD

Joe PassSounds Of Synanon ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Sealed ... $19.99
A landmark record in the west coast jazz scene – not only for the music, but for its understanding of addiction on the scene! The album brings together a set of jazz players currently spending their time at Synanon – the Santa Monica-based program of drug rehabilitation that was working some incredible magic with longtime addicts in the early 60s. Synanon had been a temporary home to more than a few great players over the years, and this set brings together some of its lesser-known residents – one of whom was guitarist Joe Pass, who would rise from the session as a real success, and go onto record heavily after this record. The rest of the group includes Dave Allan on trumpet, Ronald Clark on bass, Arnold Ross on piano, Candy Latson on bongos, Bill Crawford on drums, and Greg Dykes on baritone sax. Tracks are pretty long, and more solo based than the usual Pacific Jazz sides – and titles include "CED", "Aaron's Song", "Projections", "Stay Loose", "Hang Tough", and "Last Call For Coffee".

Carmen McRaeWoman Talk – Live At The Village Gate ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A rock-solid swinger from the great Carmen McRae – working here in a live setting with a very cool combo! The group's more than just a trio – although it is grounded by excellent piano work from Norman Simmons – and the record features nice use of flute from Ray Bernstein, guitar from Joe Puma, and bongos from Jose Mangual – all of whom bring some additional instrumental flourishes that work perfectly with that amazing range that McRae was exploring in the 60s – a way of moving past some of the more traditional (but still great) recordings of the late 50s, to find a voice in her style that's almost conversational at times, and extremely powerful without ever overstating itself. The subtlety of Carmen's genius is something that still blows us away after all these years – and it definitely comes through here, on titles that include "Woman Talk", "Kick Off Your Shoes", "Run Run Run", "Look At That Face", "Feelin Good", and "The Sweetest Sounds". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing.)
