Soul Jazz Records are releasing Count Ossie and The Mystic Revelation's seminal 1975 album Tales of Mozambique in an expanded double album/single CD/digital format, fully remastered and with the inclusion of two bonus rare single-only tracks, full sleevenotes, exclusive photographs and interview. Count Ossie is the central character in the development of Rastafarian roots music, nowadays an almost mythical and iconic figure. His importance in bringing Rastafarian music to a populist audience is matched only by Bob Marley's promotion of the faith internationally in the 1970s.

The best Jamaican musicians brought a substantial and masterful contribution to jazz. Their belated recognition reveals truly original, sophisticated styles. At long last the rare, little known albeit greatest recordings of Jamaican Jazz are gathered here, across 3CDs. They include strong personalities such as Wilton Gaynair, Cecil Lloyd, Billy Cooke, the ground-breaking Rastafarian Afro-Jazz of Count Ossie s Drum Orchestra, the distinctive guitar of Ernest Ranglin, as well as legendary names Joe Harriott, Harold McNair, Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook, Don Drummond and Rico Rodriguez. These musicians, who were shortly to be instrumental in ushering in the Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae eras, breathe energy and life into Swing, Mento, Hard Bop and Soul-Jazz.

It is nyabinghi drumming that provides the foundation for reggae, and Soul Jazz makes this argument explicit by kicking off the compilation with Count Ossie and the Rasta Family's "Africa We Want Fe Go", taking the traditional Rastafari nyabinghi chant and drumming and adding electrified reggae bass. This sets the tone for all selections: to demonstrate that link between the spirituality of Rastafari and the development of the unique sound of Jamaican music. Reggae may have developed into genres other than Rastafari music, as any listener to dancehall or lovers' rock reggae can attest, but none of these types of music would exist if it weren't for those origins in Rastafari. And although the tracklisting jumps around a little between decades, making it difficult to get a sense of chronology, it's clear that Rastafari consciousness has found its way into just about every type of Jamaican music, from drum compositions to calypso, mento, ska, reggae, and beyond. As the title says, "the dreads enter Babylon" and they leave no stone (or style) unturned.

African High Life is the debut album by Nigerian drummer and percussionist Solomon Ilori recorded in 1963 and released on the Blue Note label. The album was reissued on CD in 2006 with three bonus tracks recorded at a later session. It seems strange that Blue Note, a label generally associated with bop, hard bop, and the early avant-garde, would have released an album like African High Life. It didn't really fit in with Blue Note's back catalog and – perhaps as a result – the label didn't tread these waters again for a number of years. Regardless, this is a very enjoyable if not essential album of traditional African highlife music set to dance tempos.
