AllMusic Review by

Masayuki Koga is one of the greatest living masters of the shakuhachi flute, and this, his first CD, is a 70-minute compilation from three previous releases, Beyond Time and Space, Distant Cry of Deer, and Moon at Dawn. Traditional songs, original compositions and improvisations attest to the profound artistry of this shakuhachi virtuoso, while a beautiful rice-paper insert perfectly completes the package.
