AllMusic Review by

Shakuhachi music has a direct Zen aesthetic feeling, depicting with skillful simplicity the beauty of nature. This is a recording of improvisations performed on the shakuhachi by one of Japan's finest shakuhachi masters. The music, recorded in St. John's Church in Berkeley, California, uses the church's wooden walls to create a more natural and warm sound.
