Ichi On Buttsu: One Sound Enlightenment
His first Lyrichord CD, Nyogetsu Seldin sumptuously plays seven traditional, and one original composition on several shakuhachis of different lengths. Ichi On Buttsu is a peerless collection of traditional shakuhachi performance, a disc which quite possibly demonstrates the most profound link between music and the ancient Eastern journey toward enlightenment.

Makoto Shinjitsu: With a Heart of True Sincerity
Original compositions, healing honkyoku and "neo-honkyoku." A collection of serene solo pieces from Shakuhachi master Ronnie Nyogetsu Seldin.

This recording features the unusual and strong sound of the Komi-Buki technique. It is Ronnie Nyogetsu Seldin's eleventh shakuhachi CD.

The Empty Bowl
For the first time, other than Jin-Sensei's own recordings, a CD has been recorded of Jin Nyodo's version of Kinko-Ryu repertoire. Ronnie Nyogetsu Reishin Seldin has recorded this repertoire on his second Sparkling Beatnik release, which differs from the more-often recorded Tokyo-style Kinko-Ryu pieces, in that they are more simple and meditative in nature.
Price: $15.00
Reibo - In Memory of the Bell
This recording was Nyogetsu's first CD recording, and it is also his only international recording, published by the Japanese company Image Box. It contains all of Nyogetsu's favorite Honkyoku pieces, as at the time of the recordings, he wasn't aware that he ever would record another.

The Planet Sleeps
Everything about this CD, from its eye-popping cool packaging to its beautiful booklet, is wonderful, perhaps peerless. It's a study that spans 16 countries, catching paeans to childhood sleep from varied traditions. Beyond being a great collection of international music, this is probably the most interesting mix available of cultural voices approaching the issue of children sleeping.
