A trio for two plucked instruments and percussion doesn't seem too promising, but it works brilliantly for the Dastan Trio, here in these sensuous improvisations based on classical music from Iran. Perhaps this is because the two melody instruments have markedly individual sounds. The tar and setar (long-necked lutes played by Hamid Motebassem) have a sharp, twangy nasal quality. And the barbat, the bass-register ancestor of both the European lute and the Arabic oud (played by Hossein Behroozi-Nia), has a much mellower, longer-lasting tone. At any rate they play off each other with ease, and move together in relaxed consort with the tombak, a large goblet drum (played by Pejman Hadadi).

Like many good chamber ensembles, these three players seem to be wired to the same brain, which effortlessly coordinates their rhythmic and mood shifts. How they achieve this cohesion is hard to figure out, since each of these Iranian expats is based in a different country (Canada, Germany and the US). They can't practice together a lot, so they must actually be what comes across on this disc, warm friends who thoroughly enjoy their chance to perform together.

The music on this album should be regarded as light classical. It consists of a modern suite of filigree improvisations on melodic phrases, called goushehs, and within given modes, called dastgah. There is nothing heavy or contemplative here, which is a nice change of pace from some of this well-recorded group's more serious endeavors. The barbat, a five double-stringed, pear-shaped lute provides a bass mandolin-like sound. The setar, the small long-necked lute with moveable frets is the treble. The rhythm is emphasized by a goblet-shaped drum, the tombak. The Western-based Dastan Trio consists of Hossein Behroozii-Nia, Hamid Motebassem, and Pejman Hadadi, and this 48-minute long, 2001 studio recording came during their Los Angeles tour. Now, that I have established the facts, I will note that I enjoyed this performance of cheerful music and liked the rhythmic drumming that propelled the group to the forceful conclusion. When you are in a lighter mood and want to hear something from Iran, this recording will do nicely.

For those who like the Iranian music should have this CD. Slow and not very fast. High-quality sound!
