    When it comes to world music, there are two labels that do it better than anyone else for the common man, Rough Guides and Nascent with their Beginner's Guide To... series. While other labels certainly do a fine job, these two companies have a way of producing their recordings to appeal to those who have or may have heard something and want to know more. This triple-disc set, Beginner's Guide to African Funk, is no exception. It is loaded with historically and culturally important recordings from across the continent and styles that, while all modern (from the late '70s forward), are rooted in much older folk traditions. Performers such as Bembeya Jazz National, Sir Victor Uwaifo, Tounkara, Soumbory Jazz, and dozens of others are all included in this 35-cut monster set. Attention has been paid to the sound and packaging, as well as the scholarship in the liner notes by compilation producer Nigel Williamson. The other attractive aspect of this fine box is the price point, which is very attractive. This is a whole funky mess of modern African music that will not only provide education about music and the artists who make it on the African continent, but will also make you dance your ass off. ~ Thom Jurek
