Not that Ravi Shankar was a shakuhachi player.. but it always is a little sad when a great musician leave us...
but then again how amazing it was to have them here...

And let’s not forget Dave Brubeck, Ravi Shankar’s exact contemporary. As one critic remarked, Brubeck’s tireless passion for creating music, like Shankar’s, never diminished with age. Brubeck’ quartet pays homage to the shakuhachi on its 1964 album “Jazz Impressions of Japan” where saxophonist Paul Desmond plays (on “Fujiyama”) a highly evocative shakuhachi-styled alto.

Indeed...
Thank you for reminding us!
And Dave Brubeck died 5 December 2012....

The piece "Fujiyama" - that Rick kindly puts our attention to - can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoskiHvU-3g
