Across the Mountain is an intriguing fusion of jazz with a traditional Japanese sound. This is the effect of the personal influence of Keisuke Doi, an American jazz trained native of Japan and the sparse, mellifluous sound of the shakuhachi, a flute-like instrument. Across the Mountain is inspired by a sacred mountain pass leading to Mount Ontake. Something" offers the clearest combination of this cultural fusion. Doi was surrounded by Japanese music and played the shakuhachi at an early age, but went on to study jazz and blues and the guitar.
