    This is a first: shakuhachi and cello. The title of the CD, Sound of Distant Deer, is the English translation of the title of one of the most well-known pieces in the shakuhachi repertoire, "Shika No Tne." Typically, this piece is performed by two shakuhachis (and sometimes in solo); this time, the shakuhachi in the second part is traded for the cello. The CD offers solos on each instrument, duo improvisations, and original works (including three by American composers). What makes this CD original is the diversity of the types of music played: there are two Japanese Zen pieces (one in duet and the other on shakuhachi alone), a funky piece on cello, three contemporary pieces in duet, and an improvisational duet that mixes bebop jazz flavors and funky elements. Eclectic! For those in search of musical adventures! ~ Bruno Deschnes
