CD Reviews

Not 101 strings - often none at all
music reviewer | kitchener canada | 01/27/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is in no way related to the 101 Strings Orchestra from the 1950s and forward. "New 101 Strings" is a collective name that tries to feed off the original, but the difference needs to be exposed. The present group is actually a number of different groups each assembled for its individual purpose. Each one is quite different, and these comments are general in scope.

As dance music, they are useable - but certainly not the best.
In Canada, they are also called "Best of DanceSport". Dancesport is an athletic, disciplined and structured dance form that may well be going to the Olympics. Think Ice Dance without blades and ice, but it is not compatible with public social dance form. It needs a lot of space to perform, and often moves with much speed. The music is performed at tempos specified by the governing bodies for dance sport in each participating country.

If this product was properly named, it would be acceptable, but proper dance music for teaching, practise and competition should not have singing in it - this is a distraction as the performers are focussed on performance of figures and cannot be distracted.

This series would be rated at 2 or 3 stars if it were properly packaged and presented, but is not particularly appealing. On some tracks, there are a few strings, but these are easily outnumbered by any other section of the orchestra.

Anyone interested in getting good dance music can easily find product superior than this one with a little effort and knowledge.
