Drummer, multi-percussionist, and sculptor, Jim McGrath has established his label, Talking Drum Records, as one of America's leading world music/ percussion based labels. Talking Drum Records has released seven very impressive albums including this compilation. 'World of Rhythm' is a wonderful sampling from the six previous discs, and a great introduction to this top notch label. The album begins with two cuts from World Groove artists Rapture. The first cut,'Daily Bread' is a Mid-Eastern flavored uptempo piece with vocals similar to those heard in modern Arabic dance, driving synth melodies, and solid bass from Randy Tico. It is followed by lively African chants and exotic percussion in the joyous " 'Ocean of Joy' a mixture of harmonies similar to Ladysmith Black Mambazo and the energy of Salif Keita. We then get a sampling of two Stephan Baer albums, 'Across Distant Lands', and 'The Dark Frontier'. There are two songs from each album. The music is a passionate travelogue of musical styles and influences from various cultures with a strong African influence on most of the vocals. Baer does a wonderful job of fusing diverse elements into a style that is at once eclectic and yet unified by a sense of passion and playfulness. There are many mood changes both within and between the compositions. And next Jim McGrath is featured with four songs from three albums, 'Soul Dancer', 'Drum Spirit', and 'Percussive Environments'. Jim's music in it's own unique way, is an invitation to the inner dance of life. The drums and their shifting rhythms transport listeners through a variety of moods. It is an auditory landscape of ritual sounds and intense trance inducing rhythms. The pieces are long gradually unfolding conversations of rhythm, ranging from 6 minutes to 15 minutes long. McGrath is a talented sonic architect who produces powerful music which stirs the imagination and moves the soul. He drives each piece with his mesmerizing percussion, creating upbeat and exciting artistry within a delicate balance of traditional and inventive structures.

This is without a doubt one of the best compilations I've heard in a long time. Highly recommended!
