Montego Joe - Wild & Warm

Latin jazz on Prestige. Released 1965 (that's when the liner notes was written anyway). I don't know much about latin music but this sounds pretty good to me. Maybe not that wild but definitely warm. Aside from sunny jazz, there's a fun soul tune here aswell in Ouch with some not-meant-to-be-taken-seriously vocals. Check out the back cover for further information.

Abdo & Solar Plexus - Ah Ya Zen (excerpt)

Only six minutes, or so, of music this time around. I didn't really feel the need to rip the rest of this album, but if someone wants it, give me a shout and I'll see if I can get around to it some time. Though unless you're into traditional arab music, you're not missing out. This track, however, is something fans of this blogs musical direction should check out. It's the swedish band Solar Plexus (Monica Dominique on organ, Carl-Axel Dominique on elec. piano, Bosse Häggström on bass and Tommy Slim Borgudd on drums) laying down a funk-rock-arab instrumental. Peep it!
Oh yeah, Bahi Barakat is on Tablah and Abdo is playing the Lute (I think). There's something you haven't heard before; funk with lute.
