✨✧ Mallory-Hall Band (Sanifu Al Hall & Charley Mallory)Song Of Soweto ... LP
IRC/Outernational (UK), 1974. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A song of Soweto, but served up here by a really unique South African group that also features key work by a number of American players too! The sound is mix of the loping rhythms of SA jazz and some of the bolder elements you'd hear in American funk of the period – but all mixed together with a sense of warmth that's really wonderful, and which opens up greatly on the long tracks, with plenty of room for solos by Marshall Royal on alto, Herman Riley on tenor, Rudolph Johnson on soprano, and Billy Brooks on trumpet! You'll recognize Johnson from his albums on the Black Jazz label, and Brooks from his classic Windows Of The Mind jazz funk record – and they play here alongside keyboard work from Kirk Lightsey, under the leadership of guitarist Charles Mallory and trombonist Al Hall. Titles include "The African Night", "Song Of Soweto", "Hamba Samba", and "Moroka Rock". LP, Vinyl record album

Cosmic Renaissance (Gialuca Petrella)Universal Language ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2022. New Copy ... $18.99 20.99
A really wonderful project from Gianluca Petrella – one that seems to take all the deeper currents he used in his work with Nicola Conte, and push them even farther here on his own! There's a righteous depth to the record we never would have expected from Petrella a few years before – an album-length set that's full of jazz and soul, equally intertwined – with a quality that almost feels a lot more like some of the best London work in recent years than some of the more familiar modes we know from the Schema label. Petrella's at the helm of the proceedings, leading the group on trombone – and there's plenty of key guests on the record throughout – including Soweto Kinch on tenor and vocals, Beppe Scardino on baritone, Pasquale Calo on tenor, Vanja Contu on harp, and Anna Bassy on vocals. Titles include "Nomads", "Ancient Jazz", "Unknown Dimension", "Natsu", "Comes From The Ground", "Universal Language", "Wonder", and "Connection". CD

KabasaAfrican Sunset ... LP
Lyncell/BBE (UK), 1982. Sealed ... $11.99
A sweet Soweto group from the start of the 80s – one who have a nice current of funk in their mix, but who also serve up some well-crafted solos on both guitar and flute! The vocals are often warmly in that more familiar South African style of the period – but the record's nicely rougher around the edges than both the hits or some of the more electronic sets of the time – and the use of flute really makes things stand out on some tracks, with a warm, organic quality that really keeps things interesting – especially next to more standard keyboards. Titles include "Walking In The Jungle", "Rainbow Children", "Mafeteng", "African Sunset", "Sengiyesaba", "Happy To Be Me", and "Awundiva". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MoversMovers Vol 1 – 1970 to 1976 ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
The Movers were one of the all-time great groups on the South African scene at the start of the 70s – a tight little combo who originally began with an organ-heavy groove, then one who picked up some mighty soulful singers as the years went on! At the start, the group were maybe a South African take on territory of The Meters and Booker T & The MGs, but within a few short years they also hit more righteous territory that had them stepping out to be a voice of pride and power on the scene – a transition that's captured perfectly here in a really well-chosen array of cuts! Analog Africa really outdid themselves here – going to great lengths to tell the group's story, and provide some of their best cuts from the first years of their existence – in a smoking set list that includes "Soul Crazy", "Give Five Or More", "Gig Soul Party", "Hot Coffee", "Kudala Sithandana", "Oupa Is Back", "Ku Ku Chi", "2nd Avenue", "Six Mabone", "Plenty Time", and "Soweto Inn".

Nubiyan TwistFreedom Fables ... LP
Strut (UK), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 29.99
Nubiyan Twist really open up their sound here – in part by opening the door to a rich array of guest singers and instrumentalists – a lineup that includes Cherise, Pat Thomas, Soweto Kinch, Ria Moran, and Nick Richards – all artists who help bring a different personal flavor to each track, helping to expand the mix of contemporary soul and global elements that we loved on the last record by the group! The vibe is very much in the best contemporary London mode – right down to the rhythms, which are continuously shifting and fresh – on titles that include "Keeper", "Buckle Up", "Morning Light", "Tittle Tattle", "24/7", "Wipe Away Tears", "if I Know", and "Ma Wonka".

SaitanaBaby Don't Go ... LP
JAS (South Africa), 1976. Sealed ... $19.99
A rare bit of funk from the South African scene of the 70s – a set with a style that's a bit different than American work of the time – maybe a bit more laidback, and with this easygoing vibe that's really great! Saitana don't have to hit you over the head with their groove, but it's definitely there – slow-stepping basslines that are wonderful, and punctuated with drum parts that hit the money, but never go too far over the top – while guitar and keyboards bring in the right sort of darker currents to match the raw, raspy quality of the group's lead singer – a great talent who's got this way of making simple, everyday lyrics come across with quite an edge! Titles include "So Lucky", "Soweto", "Rufaro", "My Pretty Thing", "Baby Don't Go", and "Maroaches Are Back". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousJazz A Vienne – Past & Future ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), Late 90s/2000s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A wonderfully wide-ranging collection of work brought together in support of a long-running music festival in France – done here as a double-length set that offers up a "Past" disc of material recorded at the festival in previous years – and a "Future" disc that points the way towards new directions in European jazz! The set's worth it for the Past disc alone – as it offers up some never-heard recordings in jazz, Latin, and Brazilian modes – a nicely diverse array of tracks that have that open vibe of a really special live moment at a concert – similar to some of the best Montreux jazz recordings over the years! Titles include "Toda Menina Baiana" by Gilberto Gil, "Panamerica" by Lalo Schifrin with David Sanchez on tenor, "Chan Chan" by La Banda De Santiago De Cuba, "Delilah" by the Milt Jackson/Hank Jones Quartet, "Manalyuca" by McCoy Tyner with Gary Bartz & Ravi Coltrane, "I'll Stay" by Roy Hargrove & RH Factor, and "Soweto Sorrow" by the trio of Louis Sclavis on bass clarinet, Henri Texier on bass, and Aldo Romano on drums. The Future disc is great too – with new recordings in a range of jazzy styles, mostly by younger French artists – with titles that include "On Dimanch Maten" by Arnaud Dolmen, "Baby Rover" by Jasual Cazz, "Strength" by Emile Londonien, "Olioqui Valley" by Ishkero, "Soulful" by Leon Phal Quintet, and "Tryin Times" by Abraham Reunion.

VariousOne Night In Pelican – Afro Modern Dreams 1974 to 1977 ... LP
Matsuli (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 36.99
Tremendous sounds from the South African underground of the 70s – most of which never got global exposure at the time, and which were instead created by a small group of artists who found a home in the legendary Pelican nightclub in Soweto! The music is a fantastic fusion of American funk, soul, and jazz with some of the newer currents that were coming up in the SA scene – but all without some of the too-polished modes that you might hear when an American label was issuing such work – a blend that here comes courtesy of a host of original recordings that were issued on local labels in the 70s, brought together here with a superb selection of cuts and very detailed notes! In case you're wondering, most of this work hasn't been reissued by the Matsuli label before – most artists have yet to get full album reissues – and titles include "Pelican Fantasy" by Ensemble Of Rhythm & Art, "The Webb" by Makhona Zonke Band, "Night In Pelican" by Abacothozi, "Moshate" by The Headquarters, "There Goes" by The Black Pages, "I Have A Dream" by The Drive, "Pelican City" by Almon Memela's Soweto, and "Asso-Kam" by The Shyannes.

✨✧ Mike Nyoni & Born FreeMy Own Thing ... CD
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderfully trippy sounds from Mike Nyoni – one of the funkier talents in the Zamrock scene of the 70s – even though he also works with lots of the slight psychedelic touches of other contemporaries too! Mike's style on guitar is a bit too loose to be funk, but it's also got this nice rhythmic pulse that keeps things interesting – and some of the cuts pick up the rhythms a bit more, so that there's some snapping currents that make for a great contrast with his offbeat vocals and weirdly wobbly way of singing! As always with Now Again, the reissue of this material is a great lost treasure – handled perfectly, with great sound and detailed notes that really do justice to the music – on titles that include "I Don't Know", "Come Back To Me", "My Dear Girl", "Messed Day", "Mad Man", "My Own Thing", "Coming Home", "It's Only A Dream", and "Soweto". 2CD set features all three of Mike's rare albums – Born Free, I Can't Understand You, and Kawalala.

✨✧ Pharoah SandersSpirits ... CD
Meta, 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great later moment from Pharoah Sanders – a set that's one of his few from the time that really stretches out in the same open, spiritual territory of his classic recordings for Impulse! The group's a trio – with Sanders on tenor and wood flute, Hamid Drake on drums and other percussion, and Adam Rudolph on a host of different instruments – from hand percussion, to kalimba, bamboo flute, and gong! The style's probably mostly like Rudolph's other material – not nearly as outside as some of Drake's recordings – but the presence of Sanders' horn really shapes things a lot, and gives the whole thing a lot more bite than some of Adam's other material. The tracks are long, and mostly have Pharoah soaring out with beautifully emotive work on tenor. Titles include "Morning In Soweto", "Sunrise", "The Thousand Petalled Lotus", "Roundhouse", "Sunset", and "Calling To The Luminous Beings". CD

✨✧ Ronald SnijdersSafe Return ... CD
Ronald Snijders/Everland (Holland), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic funky flute from Ronald Snijders – a European player of the 70s, but one whose work really reminds us a lot of the soulful groove of Bobbi Humphrey at the same time! Like Bobbi, Ronald often has this clear, clean tone on his instrument – as spacious as it is soulful, which makes for a perfect mix with the album's use of keyboards and other electric instrumentation – in a way that's almost a stripped-down version of the jazz funk productions of Larry Mizell! Snijders plays all the instruments himself – using studio magic to craft all the grooves on his own – but the whole thing has the dynamic energy of a soulful jazz combo working together, on titles that include "Surinam Lady", "Lenox", "Kaseko Attack", "Tukayana", "Soweto Friend", and "Djamba".

✨✧ Makaya McCravenWhere We Come From (Chicago x London Mixtape) ... CD
International Anthem, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Makaya McCraven pushes his unique jazz genius even further – by serving up a completely groundbreaking remix of live jazz performance on the London scene! McCraven's already stood out from the pack in the way that he breaks down jazz norms by playing with a recorded performance later in the studio – but this time around, he really pushes that approach to the forefront – working in a mode that really lives up to the "mixtape" of the title – but which also still has everything that we love from his other records too! Makaya's on drums – and plays with a massively heavy groove – and he plays here with some of the leading lights of the contemporary London scene – Soweto Kinch and Nubya Garcia on saxes, Joe Armon Jones on Fender Rhodes, Kamaal Williams on keyboards, and Theon Cross on tuba – in amazing performance activity which is then brought home to Chicago, where the music gets additional remix and overdub help from LeFto, Don Leisure, Earl Jeffers, Ben LaMar Gay, Emma Jean Thackray, Quiet Dawn, and Lexus Blondin. Clearly, Makaya's one hell of a collaborative spirit – yet he also manages to make this record his boldest personal statement to date – as you'll hear on titles that include "Halls", "Suite For Artis Gilmore", "Ox Tales", "The Bounce", "Oracle", "Run Dem", "Too Shy", and "Drums & Bruk & Feel The Vibe".
