AllMusic Review by

Shakushain is one of the most popular jazz bands in Japan and for a band so popular, they are surprisingly adventurous. Desert in Hand is an ambitious blend of fusion, worldbeat, pop and jazz, and instead of sounding smooth, it's unpredictable and kinetic. Not everything on the record works, but the things that do make the listen worthwhile.
