Simple pleasures

Music for simple enjoyment, The In Tune Mixtape. 30 minutes of uninterrupted tunes from the familiar to the less so, and maybe even a couple of things you've never heard before. Including some Australian piano Jazz, Chopin inspired variations and some slightly tipsy Czech Quartet playing.
