Rock Town ExpressFunky Makossa ... LP
Comb & Razor, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 19.98
A great Makossa groove – one that takes off from the Manu Dibango approach of a few years before, but stays equally funky all the way through! The title track is overflowing with very unique electric piano next to the riffing rhythms – and other tunes seem to be heavy on the same instrument too (Wurlitzer instead of Rhodes?) – which rings out with a unique vibe that really sets the album apart from some of the more familiar work of the time! The group often sing together, with a nicely rag-tag vibe that keeps things from ever getting too slick – and the production makes key use of occasional effects, to space out the sound just a bit. Titles include "Funky Makossa", "No One Else But Me", "Sweet Rock Town", "If You Love Your Neighbour You No Go Die", "Dear Doctor", and "Tell Me My Life". LP, Vinyl record album

Shango Dance BandShango Dance Band ... LP
Comb & Razor, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
Insanely wonderful work from Shango Dance Band – a group headed by onetime Fela Kuti bandmate Ojo Okeji – whose bass work here is worth the price of admission alone! Okeji was a key part of Fela's Koola Lobitos, until leaving the group in 1968 – and taking some of the best players with him – to form the amazing Shango Dance Band, which is this incredible bridge between older Afro jazz modes and the new funk styles to explode in the 70s! At some level, the groove's a bit like that which Fela was percolating at the start of the 70s – but there's also some jazzier currents on the horn solos, especially the trumpet – and Okeji's bass is very far up in the mix – dipping, turning, and crafting these amazing grooves throughout – with a snakey vibe that's completely sublime – as is the entire record. And sure, there have been plenty of Afro Funk reissued on the market in the past decade or so – but few as essential as this one – or as enjoyable! Titles include "Position Pass Power", "Women Are Great", and "I Need Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCalabar-Itu Road – Groovy Sounds From South Eastern Nigeria – 1972 to 1982 (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Comb & Razor, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99 28.98
Not the usual sort of Nigerian sounds you'd hear on a collection focused on Lagos – and instead, music that was recorded far from the central city of the nation – often with a much rootsier vibe overall! These tunes still have plenty of funk and jazz in the mix, but they often come across with a more freewheeling, collaborative vibe – as if you've stumbled upon a group jamming in some back alley spot, really enjoying each others' company while they create some magical music. The set is maybe the most thoughtful we've seen so far from the excellent Comb & Razor label – and titles include "Mbre Isong" by Isadico Dance Band Of Nigeria, "Akam Itoro Abasi" by Mansion, "Eyong Erong Uwa" by The Visitors, "Atak Mfat Eyen" by Sunny Risky & The Vitamin Explosion, "Akwa Idim" by Sea Lions, "Suk Usan Idang" by Charles Duke, "Akananwan Isong Idung" by Monica Isaac, and "Eseme Ikpong" by Chief Inyang Henshaw & His Top Ten Aces. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousLike Nashville In Naija – Nigeria's Romance With Country Music, Yesterday & Today (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Comb & Razor, Late 70s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99 28.98
One of the more unusual strands of Nigerian music you'll ever hope to hear – a surprisingly strong legacy of country-influenced music from the West African scene – but with a unique vibe that's quite far from the familiar modes of Nashville! As with African funk or blues modes, there's a special kind of criss-crossing that goes on when American styles are taken up in a new situation – so although these guys are playing acoustic guitar, going for a bit of twang, and echoing some elements of country – many tracks come across with a very different quality, and almost remind us more of some South African or Australian styles we've heard. Lyrics are in English throughout, and titles include "The Seed Of Love" by Actor Alile, "Concert Fever" by Dedication, "No More Love In This Town" by Rennie Cottonheart, "Another Day" by Ogak Jay Oke, "Roots" by Henry Pedro, "Never Be In A Hurry" by Stanley Edet, "Going Back To My Wife" by Emma Ogosi, "Be In Your Arms" by Poor Charley Akaa, and "Dark As A Dungeon" by Gnonnas Pedro. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 2000!)

✨✧ Semi-ColonNdia Egbuo Ndia (Afro-Jigida) ... LP
Comb & Razor, Mid 70s. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare Afro Rock from Nigeria's Semi-Colon group – and it's an astonishingly strong record! It's got fuzzy guitar grooves and spacey electic piano that are indebted to the global psych soul and rock scenes of the late 60s and early 70s – but the rhythmic sensibility, percussion and vocals are prime 70s Nigeria. The record has 3 great jams per side, which is perfect – allowing each number plenty of space to stretch, and sink into to a hypnotic groove, but they're just succinct enough to leave us wanting more! Includes "Ndia Egbuo Ndia", "Ebenebe", "Isi Agboncha", "Afro Jigada", "True Fine Mama/True Fine Woman", "Giam Blow" and "Yanga (Okongwu)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed – with hype sticker indicating a bonus 7" single!)

✨✧ Sergio MendesBeat Of Brazil (aka Voce Ainda Nao Ouviu Nada) (blue & yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Culture Factory, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early bossa jazz from Sergio Mendes – recorded with his famous Bossa Rio combo, in the years before he moved to America! The album's a classic in Brazilian jazz – a tight album of bossa-inflected jazz tunes played with razor-sharp precision, handled with a style that went on to influence countless other Brazilian groups at the time. Mendes is in the lead on piano, and other players include Edison Machado on drums, Raul De Souza on trombone, and Hector Costita on tenor sax. The whole thing's great – a masterpiece of both jazz and bossa – and it's filled with classic tunes arranged by Jobim, Moacir Santos, and Sergio himself. Titles include "Nana", "Primitivo", "Desafinado", "Ela E Carioca", "Amor Em Paz", "Noa Noa", and "Neurotico". LP, Vinyl record album

Manhattan Jazz QuintetAutumn Leaves ... CD
King/Paddle Wheel/Pro Jazz, 1985. Used ... $13.99
A standard-setting record from the Manhattan Jazz Quintet – that strong return to acoustic modes that made the combo such a breath of fresh air in the 80s – at a time when so few jazz groups were content to just focus on doing their thing! The head genius here is pianist David Matthews – whose arrangements are as dynamic as you'd hear for a large ensemble, yet performed with razor-sharp energy by Lew Soloff on trumpet, George Young on tenor, Charnett Moffett on bass, and Steve Gadd on drums – all players who get plenty of individual moments in the spotlight on the album's longer tracks. Titles include "Jordu", "Recado Bossa Nova", "Mood Piece", and "Autumn Leaves". CD

RippleSons Of The Gods (with bonus track) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1977. Used ... $9.99
A really rich second album from Ripple – a group who took awhile to return to the studio, but really developed a lot in the process! The combo started out as a straight funk act – but here, they really take off with a tight approach to their instrumentation – razor-sharp work on guitar, keyboards, bass, and percussion – soaring off into the clouds with energy that more than matches the image on the cover! Given their Atlanta roots, there's a vibe here that's a bit like some of the best Tommy Stewart material of the time – and Floyd Smith produces the group on the record, really finding a great way to blend everything together, but without ever losing an edge! Titles include the club classic "The Beat Goes On and On" – plus "Sons of The Gods", "Do What You Wanna Do", "Here I Stand", "Call Me Traveling Man", and "Victorious". CD features a bonus track – "The Beat Goes On & On (single version)". CD

✨✧ VenturesVentures Christmas Album ... CD
Razor & Tie, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Here's some guys we'd be happy to have around at the Holidays – the ever-smokin' Ventures, who somehow manage to make every tune come out groovy! The set's a classic Christmas album from the combo – one that takes familiar numbers and transforms them into snow-surfing groovers, thanks to the group's great use of guitar and tightly snapping drums. A real crowd-pleaser, and a great antidote to the usual holiday fare – with tracks that include "Snow Flakes", "Sleigh Ride", "Blue Christmas", "Scrooge", "Jingle Bells", and "We Wish You A Merry Christmas".
