The Afro Sound Of Colombia Volume 1
Going on three hours of firing salsa, cumbia, boogaloo, tropical funk and chicha, from the dazzling catalogue of Discos Fuentes. As a selection, mind, a bit zany and Route One.



Bahamas Goombay 1951-1959
Somewhere between rhythm and blues, Trinidadian calypso and Jamaican mento. The burgeoning revival of Blind Blake (and there's a Harold McNair, blimey.)




Belenou Chimen Ta La
Traditional bele from Martinique warmly organic and rootsy, body-rocking, communal and defiant, with flavours of grounation, calypso, jazz, Latin, compas, zouk and West African dance.



Blind Blake Bahamian Songs
Not the great ragtime guitarist, but Alphonso Higgs and his 1950s calypsos, charming and vivacious, including the blueprint of Sloop John B. A dozen now on Moi J'Connais vinyl, in a beautiful silkscreened sleeve.



Leslie Butler We've Only Just Begun
Soul jazz from the jazz pianist plus trio. The first half's a bit soft, before Aquarius marks the dawning of the funky stuff Evil Ways, Shaft, Booty Butt ending with a cooking cover of The Meters' Funky Miracle...






Rupert Clemendore Le Jazz Primitif From Trinidad
Precious Emory Cook recordings from 1961: Clemendore playing drums, percussion and vibes in jazz, calypso, r'n'b and Latin settings; bassist John Buddy Williams leading a more
straight-up calypso set.



Colombia Palenque De San Basilio
From the first settlement of emancipated Blacks in the New World, in a rain forest on the Caribbean coast songs about sisterhood, everyday living and death, a cappella or with stirring percussion.



Colombia Sixto Salgado And Los Gaitos De Punta Brava
Gaitas music, for flutes and alegre, llamador and tambora drums.



Cuba Punto And Trova Of Sancti Spiritus
Guajira, trova, guaracha, bolero and punto from the heart of Cuba, lavishly done lutes and tres luminously crossing traditions from Spain, the Canaries and Africa.




Cult Cargo Grand Bahama Goombay
Seventies Caribbean soul and funk one ear tuned in to nearby Miami, with reggae and jazz in the mix too from Frank Penn's Freeport operation.
