Set of Six CDs of Jin Nyodo

The table below is a listing of shakuhachi honkyoku pieces recorded by Jin Nyodo. The music was recorded in Jin's living room by one of his students, sometime in about 1958.

These works were originally released in 1984 on LPs by Techiku, and were re-released this year on CD (also by Techiku).

The LPs contain 39 pieces. The CD re-release includes an additional 10 pieces. The original LP format was copied on the CDs (pieces on LP #1 are on CD #1), the additional pieces were added at the end of each CD as shown below.

As on the CDs, the original 38 pieces are listed below as numbers 1 through 39. The additional pieces are numbered I through X (Roman numerals) for clarity and separation.

The list of titles and origins are from three sources:

  1. An article published in Hogaku, Vol. 3, No. 2, 1989 (a journal from the Japanese Traditional Music Society).
  2. A list put up by Monte Levenson (what's the URL?)
  3. A copy of Monte's with track numbers added by Bill Atwood with comments and corrections by Ronnie Seldin.

The times are from the albums and the CDs, and the shaku length column info comes from an advertisement for the CD package.

With all the seeming different ways to interpret and spell Japanese words and names, there are probably spelling and other errors here - that's why there are more than one entry in some fields.
