Second album by Japanese female transverse flute player Michiko Akao, who performed with the San Francisco/Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Seiji Ozawa and worked flexibly beyond the boundaries of gagaku, released in 1981 under the production of jazz musician Chikara Ueda. Backing music was provided by Chikara Ueda and Power Station. This is one of Akao's grooviest releases, with Japonesque fusion throughout, combining the emotional melodies of the delicate, soft tones of the shinobue and ryubue flutes with crossover jazz playing. A2 and B4 are breezy fusion with excellent sound production.A2: 悠凪ゆうなぎ
