"You've surpassed your former glory on this one.
I'm listening to it for the second time as I write and the sound moved me to stop working and drop you a line and tell you how much I like
Mystic Caravan. Your best by far I think we can say don't you?

Great groove, especially on Mystic caravan, which could have gone on longer. Well recorded, great playing, love the tabla. Banares trilogy is a nice piece too, lots going on there.
This is a very good all round recording. Hopefully other shakuhachi players will get a chance to listen to your original recordings.
