Le Grand Kalle
His Life, His Music

STERN'S

Thirty-eight sizzlers spanning 1951-1970 from the great Congolese band-leader, with contributions from Dr Nico, Tabu Ley Rochereau and Manu Dibango, amongst other luminaries. 104-page booklet.



Orchestra Super Mazembe Mazembe At 45 RPM
Mazembe finally arrived in Nairobi in 1975, having left Zaire some five years earlier. The first years were lean, but in 1977 they smashed it with the single Kassongo... Magnificent East African rhumba 45s.



Sekouba Bambino The Griot's Craft
From his teens the lead singer of the great Bembeya Jazz National here in more intimate, all-acoustic settings, spotlighting his voice and songs and those rolling, melancholic Guinean grooves.



Moreno Sister Pili
Classic, headlong Congolese dance album recorded in Nairobi in 1983 (plus a couple of 1977 extras) by the siver-throated, husky Moreno Batamba, mainstay of the Orchestra Virunga and Samba Mapalanga.




Western Jazz Band Songs Of Happiness, Poison And Ululation
Saboso from mid-seventies Dar Es Salaam. Complex, fluid guitars and congas; pithy songs.




Shirati Jazz The King Of History
Daniel Owino Misiani's great benga, from Kenya. Clattering percussion, pumping bass, dazzling and nuts guitars. Overproof, five-minute, dancefloor shots.



Etoile De Dakar The Birth Of Mbalax, 1979-1981
The explosive, smash compound of Latin, African and psychedelia, spearheaded by Youssou N'Dour. With a dollop of rarities, never sounding better, and a good booklet. Great stuff.




Franco Et Le Tout-Puissant OK Jazz Francophonic 2
Reviewing the eighties (up till his death in 1989), including big hits like Mario, with no let-up in quality since the early fifties.



Keletigui Et Ses Tambourins The Syliphone Years
Saxophonist and keyboard-player Keletigui Traore's classic Guinean dance music.



Franco Et Le Tout-Puissant OK Jazz Francophonic
The first volume of a long-awaited retrospective spanning 1953 to 1980 of the Congolese colossus.



Rail Band Belle Epoque Volume 2: Mansa
Lovely hypnotic, rolling dance music featuring youngsters Salif Keita and Mory Kante.
Don't miss the fine tributes to Afrobeat and Congolese rumba.



Balla Et Ses Balladins The Syliphone Years
Thrilling vintage Guinean dance rarities, imperiously meshing local traditions with jazz and Cuban music.
