Music

Ultra-rare jazz-funk/fusion album by Japanese drummer, Akira Ishikawa.
Featuring percussion-heavy versions of ‘Let's Start’, ‘Bongo Rock’ and ‘Pick Up The Pieces’.

'Back To Rhythm’ was the final recording in Ishikawa’s African-influenced period.
He cut this record with his band ‘Count Buffalos’, featuring Kiyoshi Sugimoto,
Takeru Muraoka, Larry Sunaga and arranger Hiromasa Suzuki.

Includes excellent cover versions of The Beatles,
Simon & Garfunkel, BT Express, Stevie Wonder, Average White Band,
Incredible Bongo Band and Fela Kuti.

Originally released in Japan in 1975 by Columbia,
this is now extremely difficult to find in its original format,
and very pricey indeed!

Mr Bongo

(EN)Mr Bongo started life in 1989 as a small record shop underneath Daddy Kool’s Reggae Store on Berwick Street in London. They were the first shop to sell vinyl releases from independent hip hop labels such as Def Jam, Rawkus, Nervous and Big Beat outside of the USA. Mr Bongo also became an established bearer for hard-to-find, classic Latin music, particularly Brazilian, outside of the Americas.

Over the following years Mr Bongo moved three times within Soho and opened in Shibuya, Japan. They moved their first office to Brighton in 1999 and closed all other shops in 2003.

Their recording roster features some of the finest Brazilian, Latin, reggae, African and Jazz artists including Ebo Taylor, Hollie Cook, The Skints, Jorge Ben, Joyce, Seu Jorge, Prince Fatty, Incredible Bongo Band, Terry Callier, Arthur Verocai and Marcos Valle amongst many, many others.
