Riley Lee's Buddha's Dream reaffirms his position as one of the West's most gifted shakuhachi flute artists -- not that it needed reaffirming. The first non-Japanese shakuhachi dai shihan (grand master) returns with ten more caressing, reflective pieces, including "Bubbling Fountain," "Spring Shower," "Melting Snow," and "As the Water Flows." Ideal for meditation, studying, or just relaxing, Buddha's Dream is just as captivating to new listeners as it is to Lee's many fans.
