Prof. B.A. Zikria, MD, FACS (Columbia Univers)

Coleman's reed like voice and Phillips' music make a synphony.
My friend Coleman has done a great service to all of us in the present conditions. His Rumi's voice should be blaring over our Planet Earth facing many crises, most importantly, "The Human Soul in Crisis". American Rumi's voice and Phillips' background music is not only soothing but is an enlightenment.

Donna

Beautiful, soothing and inspiring.
I have never ordered a poetry cd but have read lots of Coleman Barks and Rumi.
The production quality is remarkable and the music tracks could stand alone, they are beautiful and provide the perfect backdrop for Barks arresting and beautiful words. This cd a joy to listen to and I value it in my collection.
Would make a great gift for a creative writing, literature or music student.
