AllMusic Review by

Although it was a Soviet republic, the music of Azerbaijan has a strong Middle Eastern sound related to neighboring Turkey and Iran. This album presents the trememdously powerful and acrobatic singer Alim Gasymov in front of a traditional three-piece ensemble, doing two side-long "mugam" suites.
