Riley Lee is the first non-Japanese dai shihan (grand master) of the shakuhachi and has garnered a large, international fanbase having performed and taught around the world. On Music For Zen Meditation, Lee expertly reveals the quiet dignity and simple elegance of this ancient instrument with starkly beautiful solos and duets. Practiced for centuries by Buddhist priests in Japan, playing the shakuhachi during meditation is called suizen, or blowing Zen. Its warm, comforting sounds relax the mind, spirit, and body. Music For Zen Meditation is ideal for those who practice yoga and meditation as well as for new listeners eager for contemplative music in the face of today's hectic and troubled world…

Riley Lee and Satsuki Odamura - Picture Dreams (2003)
New Age / World | Easy CD-DA / HQ Lossy, MP3 320 CBR | Cover included | 140 MB | RS
Audio CD: April 8, 2003 | Label: New World Music

This CD of shakuhachi and koto duets by Riley Lee and Satsuki Odamura paints sound-pictures or introspective dreams in an intriguing and rather beautiful way. Sometimes the phrases are simple and slow then suddenly there are bursts of energy as the instruments dance in ecstasy and passion.
There are some similaries here with the music of German musician Stephan Micus, so if you are a fan of this artist you should not be disappointed with Picture Dreams. Riley Lee, a dai shihan (grand master) of the shakuhachi, brings out all the magic of this instrument to our ears. And perfectly complementing Lee's performance, Odamura portrays a phenomenal mastery with the koto.

The CD's liner notes define satori as "the indescribable experience of sudden, intuitive spiritual realization." That may be, yet unless you are a serious student of yoga or a fan of its ancient musical traditions, you may struggle to reach such a state while listening to these improvisations for shakuhachi flute (Riley Lee) and koto (Gabriel Lee, no relation). Satori, originally recorded in 1983, seems best suited to serious - minded yoga practitioners and those who prefer to adorn their meditative states with only the most minimal of audio embellishments. For such people, this disc could be the answer to prayers…

This unique recording couples the music of two major 20th-century composers, and includes the world premiere on disc of Riley's "The Heaven Ladder, Book 7," commissioned by Cheng-Cochran and written in 1994. California-based pianist Gloria Cheng has become a favoured collaborator with some of the most demanding of today's composer/conductors, including Pierre Boulez, Essa-Pekka Salonen and Oliver Knussen, for her renditions of thorny 20th century scores. "The multifarious pulsings of Adams's Phrygian Gates (all 26 minutes of it) are more palatable here than on some rival versions, and the relatively brief China Gates (just five minutes) are well worth visiting. Terry Riley's pieces are more varied in colour and rhythm, less obviously 'minimalist', than you might have expected, with the worlds of jazz remaining well within earshot. Gloria Cheng-Cochran seems fully absorbed in the tasks to hand, and the sound is superb." (Gramophone Magazine).

Lee Hazlewood - Requiem for an Almost Lady (2017)  Music

Requiem for an Almost Lady is the rarest of Lee Hazlewood's albums because it was released in 1971 exclusively in Sweden (where Hazlewood also completed his cult classic Cowboy in Sweden album) and the United Kingdom. The album is one of the most beautifully agonizing breakup records to ever hit wax, culled from a composite of Hazlewood's relationships gone wrong. Spoken word introductions precede each of the ten brief songs and reveal Hazlewood's poetic soul, while the songs themselves are full of longing and witty, clever cynicism coupled with a sad-eyed idealism that paints the music as even more visceral and grievous. Hazlewood spares none of his past loves.
