    A three-disc set compiled by Phil Meadley that surveys the modern pop music of New Orleans, Beginner's Guide to New Orleans is wonderfully varied, with disc one featuring traditional Crescent City jazz and blues performances, the second disc covering the intersection of R&B and rock & roll, and the third spotlighting funk and horn bands. Among the highlights are Jimmie Noone's take on the iconic "Sweet Georgia Brown," Big Bad Smitty's gritty version of "Smokestack Lightning," Fats Domino's classic "I'm Walking," Frankie Ford's odd and delightful (it's about a monkey going to divorce court) "Alimony," Robert Parker's bouncing rendition of "Barefootin'," the New Birth Brass Band's "Mardi Gras in New Orleans," and Quintron's "Waterfall," a clattering, fuzz-toned piece of vintage garage funk. The one constant here is that it all came from New Orleans and all of it will get your feet moving. ~ Steve Leggett
