I'd like to share some info about performance events coming up this spring. I'm particularly excited about the premiere of my newly commissioned piece for shakuhachi and string quartet - that's in May. Also, my book of original Duets will soon be published and available at www.shakuhachi.com. Looking forward to cherry blossoms - Yours, James

I was tuning a Hassun today as your CD was playing and I found myself playing along with the duets. I had great fun using it as part of my tuning process. Highly recommended to other makers.
