Following the success of his recent Gilles Peterson In Brazil
compilation, the worlds number one dancefloor jazz/world aficionado returns with a similar jaunt through the groovier side of African music. Given the global popularity of Afrobeat and Afrofunk, its no surprise to find a few classic of the genre here: Peter Kings "Ajo", Manu Dibangos "New Bell" and Fela Kutis "Ye Ye De Smell" are evergreens but are sandwiched between lesser known (but equally funky) tracks from the likes of Ethiopian jazz maestro Mulatu Astatqé, Feqadu Amae-Mesqel and Letta Mbulu. The second disc leans more towards modern African sounds and remixes. Kicking off with Masters At Works anthemic reworking of Felas "Expensive Shit", the CD shifts mercurially through Carl Craigs take on Cesaria Evoras "Angola" and IG Cultures mutated take on "Aso Kere", Thievery Corporations "The Hearts A Lonely Hunter" and Osbornes "Afrika". All in all, there's plenty here to sate the most ardent African-groove enthusiast. --Paul Sullivan
