Is Jambo out of print? If so, should I just get Asante? If not, should I just get Asante anyway? I.e. Is Asante > Jambo?

Elaboration: I haven't played either game, but I'm interested. I already know that Asante is seen by the designer and players as essentially an expansion to Jambo, and I know that Asante can be played by itself. I also know that Asante has slightly different rules (which conflicts a bit with saying that it's basically an expansion, unless Jambo could actually be played with the same rules if you choose ...?) and some new elements. What I don't know is, if someone was comparing the two games totally independently and was choosing between them, which is the "better" game? If you could only choose one, which would it be?

I'd choose Jambo, but I wouldn't feel too awfully worse if I had to play Asante instead.
