This album made on a magnificent scale consisting of each song, 1,2,3 movement. Rather than being bound by the framework of traditional Japanese music, Japanese and Western musical instruments weave music that transcends the country, producing a variety of sounds.
The original songs are produced and released in a record, and this sound source is edited from the master tape recorded in 1979.

When composer Yanai Choufuu once explored the roots of Japanese music and thought about the great footsteps of the "Silk Road", he came up with the concept of "Kaze Trilogy", which are "Kaze san sho" "Fu rai sho" and "Kaze hi sho".
The instruments used are 2 Koto parts, Base Koto, shakuhachi, violin, cello, 12 pieces guitar, percussion instruments (tabla, bongo, cabasa, wind chimes, bells, wooden bells, drums, rods, etc.).

"Sound" is generated by vibration of air and transmitted to the ear. The flow of "air" is exactly "wind". Moreover, there are "winds" that are visible to the eyes, and there are "winds" that cannot be caught by the eyes. However, as long as it is sensed with the five senses and with the "heart", it can sound enough to know its existence as an "ear" or "scent of the wind".
In the normal state, some kind of "sound" is always generated apart from special sounds such as noise. When you think about the sounds of nature, insects, birdsongs, sounds of life, squeezing cars that can be heard in the distance, there are countless sounds around us. That is, the "wind" is rolling.
Beyond the passage of time, now the eternal spirit of the eternity pours down from the endless time, seeking the "wind" that permeates the heart, the composer Yanai is now thinking of having to do something.

"Wind scatters(Kaze san sho)": If you entrust yourself to the flow of the wind and think about the distance, the heartbeat that makes the flowers of unknown names scatter is the breath of the heavens of the coming day.

"Wind Reverberation (Fu rai sho)": "Rai" means "flute" and "sounding". Everyone who hears the sound of sound in the distance, touched by a group of winds coming and going, blows away.

"Wind Flight (Kaze hi sho)": When blown by the wind, the clouds will flow, the wind will fly, and the thought will fly over the sky.
