AllMusic Review by

Three leading experimental musicians in what might be called new-traditional vein play a series of improvisations for shamisen lute, shakuhachi and percussion (including djembe and darbukka). When the percussion and flute kick in, it sounds like Japanese jazz by way of NYC-style improv and Indian film music.
