Dr. Cynic's Revenge

Beat Angel Brian Smith's 10 Greatest Atrocities in '96

5. Josef Zawinul, My People (Escapade) A dash of Weather Report, a sprinkling of Cannonball Adderley and more than a touch of the Third World make for a spirited outing by this keyboard master.

Chris King (World Music)
1. Various artists, Indonesian Music, Volumes 11 and 12 (Smithsonian/Folkways) Field producer Philip Yampolsky has recorded 12 outstanding volumes and counting. This year's mind benders bring us Sumatran gong songs and Melayu bands.

2. Djivan Gasparyan, Apricots of Eden (Traditional Crossroads) Majestic Armenian flutework.

3. Kudsi Erguner Ensemble, Middle Eastern Roots Music (Traditional Crossroads) Near-perfect opus of works by Ottoman Empire court composer Tatyos Efendi.

4. Various artists, Capoeira Angola From Salvador Brazil (Smithsonian/Folkways) Perfectly captures this manic, African-Brazilian martial art-dance music.

5. Pandit Kamalesh Mitra, Tabla Tarang-Melody on Drums (Smithsonian/Folkways) Mitra puts poetry in motion, asea in relentless rhythm.
