Recommended Listening

What is New Age music really? It's just a term that describes a spirit filled approach to music making. And before the term New Age was coined (way, way before!) there was Shakuhachi flute music. When I first heard this CD by Riley Lee, I instantly knew I was listening to a master; someone who has no distinction between feeling and playing.

In fact, I assume that playing the flute is as much a natural act for this man as breathing is. This music seems to flow and grow organically. It is quite different than what most Western ears are used to and, surprisingly, may even irritate those who need to have resolution in their music. But, if you enjoy a tranquil atmosphere that lingers delightfully, you'll enjoy this (New Age) music.
