Finally now May 2005 - and just in time this is the second album from this extraordinary group. Sound Unity is comprised of six new long-form compositions recorded live to multi-track in Montreal and Vancouver on the groups Summer 2004 tour of Canada. Infectious grooves and luminescent melodies to the fore! Consummately stunning and eternal!

From the liner notes to Sound Unity by William Parker:
All people in the world need the beauty of truth to survive. ... Over
the last 600 years we have acquired tons of knowledge and information
about everything under the sun, yet we are a stones throw away from
destroying the world in which we live. All information that is acquired
in life must transform into wisdom; then into compassion. Without compassion
science will never succeed.
This album is of the God-Head.
