Album Notes
With these profoundly serene improvisational pieces, you’ll be transported to a sanctuary away from our materialistic reality. Like a Zen garden in Kyoto surrounded by the harmonious beauty of nature...a spiritual environment that envelopes you promoting deep breathing and relaxation in your body, mind, your soul.
Perfect music for Yoga, Massage, Meditation and Relaxation.

Ed RosenBerg and I have been experimenting with the process of improvisation for almost two years.
We improvised without any preconception, premeditation or planning of musical structures. By “not forcing” we tried to let the music take its own flow. Our collaboration became our form of meditation.
Shikisokuzeku is a word from the Buddhist teaching which means “All is vanity\"

to write a review


This is a superb collection of relaxing pieces of music, exquisitely improvised by Keiko Takeda, piano, and Ed Rosenberg, tenor saxophone, with very subtle electronically simulated percussion sounds added for color. Takeda writes in the cover note that together they had been experimenting with this improvisatory mode of performance for about two years. This really shows!! Phrases and responses are perfectly intertwined. They talk, they whisper, and, yes, they caress--the music is overwhelmingly sensual--perfect for yoga, meditation, or just day dreaming with your partner or alone. Befitting the mood, most pieces are in minor or pentatonic keys or both, with some nice sound effects such as gentle rain or the flow of a brook added for atmosphere. I'd definitely consider bringing this cd along to my next relaxing massage session...

A suggestion: If Tekeda and Rosenberg are ever considering performing a similar collection in public, I'd highly recommend that they diversify somewhat by including pieces in differnet moods, keys and rythms. In its present form the collection is a bit monotonous to present in a full concert program.

Beautiful improvisational work!
I enjoyed very much.
The dialogues between the instruments are very pleasant and interesting.
