– Over the weekend I donned my correspondent cap for FOK and hit up the Arts & Leisure closing party event at Space 15 twenty in Hollywood. My findings are now online.
– Remember those homemade, New Kind of Mambo, compilations I raved about last summer? No? If not, dig in here. Their are now thirty more volumes available for download, each one heavily stacked. Links after the jump.
– The mighty Awesome Tapes From Africa is set to begin releasing records this Fall. Their first entry is Malian singer NĂ¢ Hawa Doumbia’s La Grande Cantatrice Malienne Vol 3 – an album she recorded in 1982.
– Soul Sides remembers the late Nickolas Ashford and Jerry Lieber with a selection of personal favorites.
