Product Description

Twelve years after it's release, Isso's influential album finally gets re-released and re-packaged after being deleted for a few years. Spectacular nohkan and shinobue (Japanese flute) playing accompanied by guitar, percussion and Japanese taiko drums, and various luminaries from the Japanese jazz and improvised scene including Yosuke Yamashita on piano, sax player Akira Sakata, guitarist Kazumi Watanabe and Kiyohiko Semba on percussion. This album was released at the time of the World Music boom in Japan, when Japanese musicians first explored what they could do with their own musical roots. Some experimentations now sound dated, but this has stood the test of time, as Japanese traditions are combined with flamenco, Indian and other traditions and jazz, and performed with stunning technique.
