I have always been fascinated by the Japanese sense of style. The food the design and of course the music. The shakuhachi is the flute of choice.
This seemingly simple bamboo tube with a sharpened edge is capable of the most incredible range of sounds and emotions. Luckily I have just been reunited with Jeff Cairns, a long lost high school buddy who happens to have been living in Japan for the last 30 years or so. And even better he happens to be one of the finest shakuhachi players around. We were able to get together for two sessions over the last 4 years. We recorded some traditional Japanese works (with our personal twists) as well as some of our own musings.

Enjoy our west meets east meets west adventure.
