If you're talking African funk and want to have someone do the digging for you, you can do a lot worse than Stone's Throw general manager Egon, whose taste and knowledge of 60s and 70s world funk is unparalleled. His Now-Again records released a few great collections last year, including one of our most played, the Spiritual Jazz: 'Esoteric, Modal and Deep Jazz from the Underground, 1968-77′.
This year he compiled a list of his favorite reissues for National Public Radio, and it's a wide, comprehensive selection of music from across the globe. If you've got a gift card and are looking to burn through it, look no further.
