Bundanon is an artists' retreat/nature preserve found south of Sydney, established by the late Australian painter Arthur Boyd. Shakuhachi (a flute made of bamboo root) player Riley Lee, a Texas native, spent part of the 1990s as an artist in residence at the center while he recorded music and performed in his adopted home country. Postcards from Bundanon, a compilation of works from eight recordings made during the decade, commemorates his stay and Boyd's memory. Listeners charmed by the ethereal, meditative tones Lee coaxes from his flute on such gems as Oriental Sunrise and Sanctuary: Music from a Zen Garden will find Postcards to be a more diverse affair, mixing solo works with collaborations with assorted instrumentalists (harp, tablas, koto, bass, didjeridoo, et al.). Lee explores a broader expressive range here, at times introducing trace elements of classical ("Sacramental Lullaby") and jazz textures (heard in the unusually inviting "Shimmer") into his slowly evolving soundscapes. While still gentle in spirit, Postcards offers a touch more musicality and mystery, and a little less bliss, than the two recordings mentioned previously, though Lee again demonstrates an astonishing command of this ancient, rudimentary instrument. The evocative "Morning Rain: Sparkling Light," for example, is as lovely a piece as Lee has ever recorded. --Terry Wood
