An amazing Shakuhachi player Marco Lienhard, a very gifted artist with wonderful sense of musicality. Not since late “ National Treasure” Yamaguchi Goro’s rendition of Shakuhachi music have I felt the need to listen to more of his music. His rendition of Honkyoku form the Watazumi style is incredible. His powerful and heartfelt rendition of Amazing Grace reminded me of such gospel singers as Mahalia Jackson. ”Hogaku Journal, Tokyo
