Our Stones Throw/Now Again Records Special never ends... Here's the second half of Karl Hector's Afro-Jazz selection. I've already said it, but If you still haven't heard the "Sahara Swing" album from Karl Hector & The Malcouns (alias the Poets Of Rhythm, better known for originating the Deep Funk movement in the 90s), you know what you have to do... And don't forget to download the first 30mn slice of this "Karl Hector Show Part 2" already up on since December 2008.

It sounds like there is an extra track between the one minute interlude and the Poly Rythmo track..or is the poly-rhythmo one just really long? It is a slow tune with marimba or something then it goes into the funk drums of Poly-Rythmo
