The Winter: Flying Visit

Acoustic instrumental music by Wellington, New Zealand, improvising trio The Winter.

Mike Kingston: charango, guitar, clarinet

Dave Edwards: ukulele, sanshin, tenor sax, piano

Simon Sweetman: xylophone, percussion

In 2012 we lived in three different countries.  This was recorded during a one-week window of opportunity when we were all back in NZ, in August (the southern hemisphere winter).

A remix from this session also serves as the overture to the Other Islands: 2012-2018 compilation.

Some new international influences are apparent – Mike brought his charango from South America (¡Ole!), and I brought a sanshin from Okinawa, Japan (がんばって!), in the interests of pan-Pacific cross-cultural fusion.

The bird on the cover is a kaka (North Island New Zealand native parrot).
