Great Persian classical traditions are not widely known but Kalhor may change all that. As a soloist and new master of the Iranian spike fiddle (kamancheh), and in collaboration with great artists like Hossein Alizadeh, Kalhor has brought new meaning to the instrument in his adventurous improvised works. This album is a three part work based on a traditional structure known as dastgahs. Two duets with tombak drummer Pejman Hadadi surround a beautiful improvised solo. Kalhor uses the classical modes to develop the work, but there are innovative phrasings and many references to wider folk repertoire. The CD includes excellent notes on the history of the region, the music and the performer. --Louis Gibson

"I first heard about this group through my then-girlfriend. A struggling group from Dallas, Tx. with so much potential, they made every high school girl drop to their knees. This combination of latin dance beats and harmonic voices takes the latin pop style into the boy band millenium. This album includes a compilation of not only latin dance, but as well as heart-struck ballads that will make any girl cry. One song that catches my ear is the song "Quiero Bailar Contigo". When you first hear it, it doesn't really get your attention, but if your parents grew up as peace lovers in the 60s, then this song will definitely be recognized as the English version "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" by Leo Sayer. The breakdown rap included proves that this group can not only sing, but one member has the potential to create cameo raps in his music. I give this album a 5 star tribute, not only because they come from my hometown of Dallas, but also because they have struggled through thick and thin to make a difference for local artists everywhere...and because it's great to dance to."

"Growing up and listening to music is one of the most great challenges in my life.There are so many record artist who make are community jump out of are seats,who make tears come out of are hearts,and just the grEAT sensational moment of our lives.Particualry, this one group:UNISON, made me look at music from a different perspective.I enjoy to this day other artist but none can be the sAME touching moment like this group.I engoy their music talent so much I cry sometimes just to see them once more or atleast listen to one more sonG of there cd.I never once go to purchase the cd due to financial problems.But I will remember them in my heart, even though they struggled to there music and fans, I will always be there number one fan deep down inside.This review may not be what it is supposed to be about, but it is a review about the great emotion I feel bout the group."
