Terrific, cult French space-jazz LP from 1974. Samba Miaou is an irresistible cocktail of Pharoah Sanders vibes and deliriously militant poetry from the same menu as I’ve Known Rivers and Stances A Sophie.

Spiritual jazz bliss from the Source Of Life Arkestral Revelation in early-eighties Atlanta, crossing Roy Ayers Ubiquity vibes with Black Jazz and co. Top-notch, limited-edition revive by the Paris collectors’ shop.

Dazzling, expansive, Latin-Caribbean brilliance from 1974 by the Martiniquan percussionist — check molten descarga Vulcano and jazzy guaganco Negro Lucumi — revived on 180g vinyl in made-in-Japan sleeves.

Spiritual jazz funk LP, privately-pressed in 1972 and currently hard-sought. This reissue to Superfly’s spanking standards — 180g vinyl, paste-on covers from Japan. Last few.

Lovely, exemplary Island Soul from 1976: a blend of soul, funk and reggae with Bahamian Junakoo and Goombay rhythms. Tasty funk backing from the Boris Gardner Happening — expert in the floaters and ballads, too.
