VariousAkwaba Abidjan – Afrofunk In 1970s Ivory Coast ... LP
Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $29.99
A fantastic collection of funk from the 70s scene in Ivory Coast – music that's every bit as heavy on jazz-based solos as it is on the grooves – with some especially strong sax lines that really give the tunes a lot of soul! The music here is nice and raw, and often very stripped-down in terms of presentation and production – never too polished or commercial, nor purposely tripped-out – and instead the vein of Afro Funk that's fantastically put-together right from the start, and which has plenty of appeal to fans of American funk from the same time! Lots of these artists clearly borrow the same James Brown influence that Nigerian funk work had in the early 70s – but they also work with very interesting and unique sounds throughout – especially on the reeds and keyboards, which cascade with lots of fresh phrasings and frenetic energy. There are vocals on some cuts, but the instrumentation is always what keeps things strong – and titles include "Tumba Safari" by Afro Train, "Chicken" by De Frank Jr, "Tink Tank" by Afro Soul System, "Issa" by Les Nidrou, "Secret Populaire" by Sewa Jacintho, "Ayee Menko" by De Frank Jr, "Femme D'Ajourd'hui (part 2)" by Moussa Doumbia, "Assalam Aleikoum" by Francis Kingsley, "Dankasa" by De Frank Jr, and "Mariage" by Moussa Doumbia. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousApala – Apala Groups In Nigeria 1967 to 1970 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A fantastic collection of sounds from the Nigerian scene at the end of the 60s – music in the apala mode, a highly rhythmic blend of percussion, voices, and thumb piano – served up with a style that's a lot grittier than some of the more commercial music of the time! These tracks are wonderfully raw, and completely hypnotic – all these criss-crossing changes and complicated elements at play in the percussion, but in ways that draw us in right away – then hold us in rapt attention at all the amazing elements going on! The style is maybe a key link between the West African modes that had been captured earlier by ethnographic recordings, and some of the sounds that would soon arise in more mainstream studios – and this collection is supposedly the first ever apala compilation issued outside of Nigeria, all done in the usual top-shelf Soul Jazz style. Titles include "Agilinti Lomu" by RA Tikalosoro & His Group, "Ewure Ile Komoyi Ode" by Haruna Ishola & His Apala Group, "Lekele Bale" by Adebukonla Ajao & Her Group, "Oko Lolomo" by Ayisatu Alabi & Her Group, "Orin Aje" by Rapheal Ajide & His Apala Group, "Rufai Balogun" by Haruna Ihsola & His Apala Group, and "Oriki Ibeji" by Jimoh Agbejo Bo Ogun & His Group.
