You could describe the British trio’s music as “chamber-folk”, the Norwegian tuba virtuoso’s as “chamber-jazz”.
I am wary of hyphenated “chamber” musics; recordings so-described oft prove anaemic, twee, wannabe.

Perth’s King’s Park – a short walk or free bus trip from the CBD – is bigger than New York’s Central Park.
It is also vastly richer in local flora.
Nearer to the Indian Ocean and just 8 kilometres from Perth’s GPO, the even bigger Bold Park has more than 300 local plant species…and (alas!) more than 200 introduced ones.

Its natural beauty, wildlife, cuisine, art and people make Japan a wonderful destination. English-speakers in search of opportunities for amusement and/or bewilderment will also be rewarded – many times, daily – by Japan’s signs, labels and menus.One Comment
