Jamaican Space Jazz And More

Announced here (complete with tracklists and some historical context), Dr. Auratheft has posted three new mixes today.

- AFRICA WAKBARR VOLUME 2, African funk, ballads and classics

- WAREIKA HILL JAZZ, Jamaican space jazz & nyahbinghi

- FREEDOM INC., All that jazz & beyond

I've got the Wareika Hill Jazz mix in my ears right now (how could I pass up "Jamaican space jazz"?), and it seems that Auratheft's latest attempt to educate us about rare Jamaican sounds is a success. Another set of great songs I've never heard before, and this one sounds almost like Sun Ra threw a party and a bunch of Rastafarians showed up. The Nyahbinghi chants and drumming provide a crucial chapter in the history of Jamaican music.
