So this past week I was fortunate to become the new owner of a beautiful and powerful Ichijo flute from David Yudo Sawyer.  I have been playing an Advanced Student Shakuhachi from Monty Levenson for about a year and a half.  I’ve also enjoyed the ease of care Shakuhachi Yuu and a wonderfully meditative 2.4 Perry Yung jinashi flute.   However, playing this Ichijo has completely blown my mind.  I worried that it was too much for me, but, the best I can explain it is like driving a high performance sports car.   Granted in many cases people need to decide if they really need such a ‘car’, but pretty much everyone would enjoy driving one.  Having it now, I know I was ready and thankful that such a beautiful instrument found it’s way to me.
