autumn_fieldFrom the All Music Guide:

Riley Lee is one of the most prolific and probably one of the best Western shakuhachi players, having recorded more than 30 CDs. This CD is the fourth of a series of seven dedicated to traditional Zen music for solo shakuhachi.

The most striking aspect of this album is the quality of the recording; it was recorded in the reverberation room of the National Acoustics Laboratory in Sydney, Australia, giving the performance a “grandeur” and a presence seldom heard from the recording studio. This is meditation music in its purest sense.

Highly recommended.
