Reviewed 2017-06-01 
Experimental jazz meets gamelan? Simply put, this is gamelan type gongs and percussion, slowly phrased, duet with sultry mournful sexy saxophone/flute, chill minimal and sparse. Bird sounds here and there. Altogether hypnotic and atmospheric. Zen. Aptly titled.

1)* (5:56) chill, gongs and gamelan type subtle percussion with slow sensual sax. 2) (5:32) low droning gongs. 3) (4:47) big slow gongs, bird songs. 4) (6:07) big gongs, minimal 5) (4:47) flute appears, eastern flare 6)* (6:20) sax returns, very chill, lovely 7) (5:02) higher energy to this: sax, percussion. 8) (5:11) this has a subtle upbeat rhythm to it if you want something more songlike 9) (4:44) big gongs, sax. 10) (3:59) chill 11) (3:01) percussion has a steel drum ring, upbeat 12)* (6:46) spooky tones emanate from cymbals
