This is John Kaizan Neptune's first full-length solo CD. It was recorded in his home in Japan, a house in the shape of a dome. Of the ten pieces, three are his own compositions and the seven others are traditional pieces, including a folk song and the piece "Tsuru No Sugomori," considered as the most difficult piece of the Zen repertoire. Neptune does not disappoint. Words Can't Go There is a high-quality record in terms of shakuhachi performance as well as quality of recording. Neptune indicates that the acoustics of his house were such that there was no need for any electronic embellishments, and the results are impressive; there is a "proximity" in the sound that cannot be achieved from recording studios. Words Can't Go There creates the feeling that Neptune is playing the shakuhachi right beside the listener.
