Bamboo Textures
1979 Japan import without Obi. Bamboo Textures is a unique and fascinating album made by John Kaizan Neptune, a renowned American master of the shakuhachi flute.

The result is a beautiful and meditative soundscape that combines the improvisational spirit of jazz with the serene and contemplative qualities of Japanese music.

Throughout the album, Neptune's shakuhachi playing is both lyrical and virtuosic, showcasing his mastery of the instrument. The compositions range from gentle and meditative to more lively and rhythmic, always showcasing the unique timbres of the traditional Japanese instruments. Bamboo Textures is a multi-listen for anyone interested in a peaceful and contemplative listening experience.
