Antonio Carlos Jobim Stone Flower
Starting to stretch bossa conventions, spurred by his move to Creed Taylor's ambitious set-up, aided by Deodato's brilliant arranging. From 1970, with Airto and Ron Carter; and some lovely electric piano.




Mark Ernestus Masikulu Dub
The Basic Channel maestro takes on Konono in his hardest, best solo mix yet. So brawling and bad-minded, dense and intense, and musically expert, it amounts to a ritual humiliation of the genre Dub Techno.



Mulatu Astatke Timeless
With jazz giants like Bennie Maupin, Azar Lawrence and Phil Ranelin, the great man on stage in Los Angeles in 2009, latinized in front of everyone.




The National Orchestra A Of The Republic Of Mali
Classic Malian dance-orchestra music from the 1970s, fronted by the Guinean-style guitar of Keletigui Diabate, and even better than Mississippi's previous raid on this series, originally issued in Germany.



Waking Up Scheherazade Vol 2
Rough and terrific sixties and seventies rock shit from North Africa and the Middle East, on beautifully coloured vinyl, attractively sleeved.




Bola Johnson Man No Die
Lovely highlife and palm wine, wheezing afrobeat from the late sixties, early seventies.



Turkish Freakout!
Choice sixties and seventies psych, funk and rock, swiped from Turkish 45s.



Lobi Traore Rainy Season Blues
Chokingly beautiful last recordings, singing with soul and tenderness to his own guitar accompaniment. We loved Lobi, and we'll miss him badly.
Quintessential Malian blues.



Rita Lee Build Up
Her solo debut in 1970, backed by fellow Mutantes, with arrangements by Rogerio Duprat. A flamboyant, tainted pop album. It doesn't sound like Nico at all, but its moves put her in mind.



Josephine Foster Anda Jaleo
Folk songs from Lorcaís collection Las Canciones Populares Espanolas make rather ruddy, incongruous settings for Foster's voice. The empty ones are best.
