Grupo PilonLeite Quente Funana De Cabo Verde (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Ostinato, Early 90s. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 19.98
Quick-stepping grooves from Grupo Pilon – one of the key groups who migrated from Cabo Verde to Lisbon in the early 90s – creating almost their own wave of a musical diaspora in the process! The sounds here are a more electrified version of island styles – often with some sort of programmed rhythms at the bottom, but laced throughout with fast guitar lines and keyboards – all leaping along at a mighty nice pace, usually providing even more energy for the tunes than the vocals. All tracks are nice and long, and presentation is in the best Ostinato Record style – with titles that include "S'ta Contente", "Longi Do Bo", "Rabes", "Txada Liton", "Liberdadi", and "Kanto Nstaba Nobu". LP, Vinyl record album

Star Band De DakarPsicodelia Afro Cubana De Senegal ... LP
Ostinato (UK), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $23.99 28.99
Fantastic sounds from the Star Band Of Dakar – one of the leading lights of the new wave of Latin influence on the West African scene at the end of the 60s – presented here in a killer collection of work! The group have often been linked to the sounds of Cuba – which is clearly an influence on their rhythms and song structure – but there's also a lot of snakey guitar here that reminds us of some Colombian styles, and even a bit of Peruvian chica – as the instrument often gets a bit of effects, including some wah-wah work – in a way that creates psychedelic flourishes over the straighter rhythms! The package is great – with superb song selections, and a bit booklet of notes – and titles that include "Guajira VEn", "Mariama", "Danguele Fasso", "Le Lolaye", "Misterioso", and "Andado".

VariousPour Me A Grog – The Funana Revolt in 1990s Cabo Verde ... CD
Ostinato (UK), Late 90s. New Copy ... About December 1, 2019
A really amazing criss-cross of musical modes from the island of Cape Verde – a nation that already gave the world many musical hybrids over the years, but really knocked things out of the park with the electrified funana movement in the 90s! The sounds here are ancient at the core – rootsy percussion and accordion, used in ways that echo South American styles from decades past – but the grooves are quicker, and electrified by beats, keyboards, and other more contemporary elements – so that the music is really set on fire, and burns with a really unexpected sense of urgency! The bpm count on most tracks is pretty high – which makes the deft work of the accordionists even more amazing – and as always with the Ostinato label, the whole thing comes with some wonderfully detailed notes on the music and culture. Titles include "Pom Um Grogu" by Peps Love, "Mo Na Mama" by Bitori E Fefe Di Calbicera, "Rabidanti" by Orlando Pantera, "Nha Boi" by Tchota Suari E Chando Gracioso, "Rei Di Tabanka" by Ferro Gaita, "Mulato Ferrera" by Etalvino Preta, and "Nha Lutcha" by Avelino E Orlando Pantera.

VariousSweet As Broken Dates – Lost Somali Tapes From The Horn Of Africa ... CD
Ostinato (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A stunning discovery in music – incredible sounds from the under-documented Somali scene – collected together from an archive of tapes that was rescued from a radio station right before the nation's years of political turmoil! The music here was mostly issued on cassette in the 70s and early 80s – and together, these tracks are a revelatory look at sounds that never got the sort of global circulation of other north African styles at the time. Some elements seem to reflect modes of nearby Ethiopian and Yemenite styles, but others are very unique – and there's almost a lyrical quality to some of these numbers that really seems to surpass the boundaries of language – a sense of meaning in the melody that's surprisingly powerful. Instrumentation is a mix of acoustic and electric sources, with relatively heavy use of keyboards and organ – but often with tunings that are more 70s than 80s overall – and definitely free of any too-commercial modes. Sometimes the rhythmic structure almost feels like deep soul – as does the overall soulful presentation of the lyrics – although again, in ways that are quite different from more mainstream efforts of the time. The package is filled with notes – pages and pages that tell this lost history, the efforts of the compilation's producers, and other overlooked narratives – alongside titles that include "Buuraha U Dheer" by Nimco Jamaac, "Ninkaan Ogayn" by Gacaltooyo Band, "Xuduud Ma Leh Xubigaan" by Iftiin Band, "Qaarami" by Xasan Diiriye, "Na Daadihi" by Mars, "Oktoobar Waatee Waa Taayadii" by Waaberi Band, and "Mama" by Danan Hargeysa.

VariousTwo Niles To Sing A Melody – The Violins & Synths Of Sudan ... CD
Ostinato (UK), Mid 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 24.99
Other-worldly sounds from the place where the Nile River splits into two – the hugely under-tapped legacy of Sudanese music from the scene in Khartoum – presented here in a beautifully lavish style! The package is as much a history book as a mindblowing set of music – as the whole thing includes copious notes, interviews, and other writings that really get at the history of the sounds created at this unique cultural crossroads – with political and cultural details that help understand the context of the songs, even though the music is more than great enough on its own! As promised in the title, many of the songs are heavy on violins or synth – but used in ways that are strikingly similar, often as these washes of sound over earthier percussion that really drives the tunes peppered with lyrics that are often sung in a very powerful way, even past the barrier of language. Many cuts also have offbeat reeds and other elements that echo some of the Ethiopian styles of the time – and the package features work recorded over 20 years, but mostly clustered around the mid 70s, or the mid 90s. Titles include "Ma Hammak Azabna" by Zaidan Ibrahim, "Igd Allooli" by Said Khalifa, "Al Mursal" by Mohammed Wardi, "Elhabeeb Wain" by Ibrahim El Kashif, "Al Wilaid Al Daif" by Mustafa Modawi, "Al Zaman Zamanak" by Abdullah Abdelkader, "Al Sourah" by Mohammed Wardi, "Galbi La Tahwa TAni" by Samira Sunia, "Alamy Wa Shagiya" by Hanan Bulu Bulu, "Al BAreedo Ana" by Emad Youssef, "Ma Kunta Aarif Yarait" by Abdel El Aziz Al Mubarak, and "Arraid Arraid Ya Ahal" by Madjzoub Ounsa.

Blue NotesBlue Notes In Concert Vol 1 ... LP
Ogun (UK), 1977. Near Mint- ... $49.99
A wonderful latter day recording from this seminal South African expatriate jazz combo. Dudu Pukwana, Chris McGregor, Louis Moholo, and Johnny Dyani make up the quartet that retains the name of The Blue Notes for this live session recorded in London in 1977. Each side of the album is comprised of a suite of numbers, built upon original themes by the group members and riffs off of traditional African folk songs, showcasing the Blue Notes' empathetic group improvisation over angular rhythms that melt into ostinato rhythmic figures with heavy, emotionally charged free solos over top. Titles include "Ilizwi", "Abelusi", "Amadoda", "Nomsenge", "Ithi-Gqi", "Mhegebe", "Maje" and "We Nduna". LP, Vinyl record album
(A great copy!)

✨✧ Herbie HancockMwandishi ... LP
Warner, 1971. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent session that was one of Herbie Hancock's first free-flowing fusion records of the 70s! Herbie's playing Fender Rhodes with a sound that's at once cosmically beautiful, soulfully fragile, and spacily grooving – and he gets some excellent accompaniment from an all-hip group of players that includes Benny Maupin on bass clarinet and flute, Buster Williams on bass, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, and Julian Priester on trombone – plus percussion from Jose Areas and Ndugu Chancler. The roots of later classics like Sextet and Flood all start with this session – and the album contains 3 long tracks – "You'll Know When You Get There", "Ostinato", and "Wandering Sprit Song". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFunky Chicken – Belgian Grooves From The 70s ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic funk from the Belgian scene of the 70s – a really mad mix of sounds and styles, and a really revelatory set overall! Few people might use the words "Belgium" and "funk" in the same sentence – but that may well change after this sweet set gets a few spins – as the whole thing's a stunning array of groovers that not only match the best jazz, funk, and sound library tracks from other European scenes in the 70s – they also do a great job of taking on the best America had to offer too! Belgium was no stranger to soul and funk – given its fervent 60s soul collectors scene, and the nation's role as a crossroads in Europe – which left it open to plenty of influence from visiting musicians, including American artists as well. You can definitely hear all that coming into play here – as the work is nicely fresh, and very free of overdone cliches or easy references – as these guys all take the best bits that might have influenced them, and jumbled them up into something really new. The scope of sounds is wonderful – and titles include "Funky Tramway" by Mad Unity, "Sunshine Star" by Open Sky Unit, "Gimme Some More Of That" by Plus, "Funky" by Andre Brasseur, "Avenue Louise" by Black Blood, "Music & Co" by Les Helions, "Balek" by Placebo, "Librium" by Chicken Curry & His Pop Percussion Orchestra, "Top Less" by Alex Scorier, "Stories" by Chakachas, "Ostinato Bass" by Rene Costy, "Memories" by Amadeo, "Viva Boma" by Cos, "Pop In Three" by The Rapture, "Smoke" by Leo Cavallo, "Marakesh" by Hein Huysmans Kwintet, "One For You" by Doug Lucas, "Put Everything Together" by Plus, "Lord Funk" by Super Funk Special, and "Humpty Dumpty" by Placebo.
