Tony Scott, a jazz clarinetist who has left behind masterpieces that incorporate elements of folk music, traveled to Japan in 1964 to record this album with the late Hozan Yamamoto, a shakuhachi player of the Tozan school, and Shinichi Yuize, a koto player who has left behind many masterpieces as a composer of modern Japanese music. Rather than being a fusion of Japanese classical music and jazz, the clarinet sounds like a Japanese instrument along with the shakuhachi and koto tones, and it is an excellent performance that expresses as close as possible to the meditative world of Buddhism. It is a masterpiece of early ambient jazz. On the inside of the spread, there is a photo of Tony Scott wearing a montsuki hakama (traditional Japanese garment) playing in an agura position, which shows how serious he is.
