Tonight was meant to be a bit of a night with a difference as I planned to have a “solo” post for the first time ever. I had bunch of tracks from Moro Jazz who were to be the only group on today’s post. Then I run across Marijani Rajab & Dar Es Salaam Jazz Band and that was the end of that plan.

All in all, good times are to be had tonight, Enjoy yourselves.

I once again have (shamelessly) stolen art for this from Doug Paterson – thank you.

There is a bit of a write up on Mbaraka Mwishehe & Moro Jazz Band at Muzikifan if you are looking for a bit of background on the group and their music.

Track of the day

My love of house rears its head again.

This week, it is Taxi’s People coming running off their 2001 album Blue Zero One. I first heard this track back in 2003 on the Sounds, form and colors mix at one of the oldest depots of house on the web that used to live at at egnatia.ee.auth.gr/. Sadly, this site like many other great deep house sites like 20 Thousand Leagues and truly-madly is now defunct.

[edit] … just got some great news, it seems that truly-madly might be coming back some time soon … [/edit]

Finally, , if you are new to the site or trying to figure out how to do something, please read this post.

    Thanks for posting these splendid tracks – unfortunately the Morogoro Jazz track is a wma file and has some sort of copy protection preventing conversion to mp3. Any possibility of posting an mp3 instead?
    I have bought every Morogoro Jazz cd that I have found at non collector prices (Ukumbosho 6, 7 & Soloist National 1968-1972). I wish Tamasha would reissue the rest and make more of this superb music available.

    The track is now mp3.

    Sorry about that.

    - Steve

    Great stuff. This music takes me long way back in time. Kuna nyimbo moja inayitwa “uwivu hasala”, artist unknown. And many more. Also Mbaraka Mwinshehe’s “expo 70 prt 1″.

    Are you familiar with King Kikii’s Salamule ? Its the most addictive earworming Kiswahili song ever recorded. No hyperbole.
