Those who do something novel are often prepared to get back to basics. It must be one of the essential skills for excellent artists.

Kaoru Azuma, who played a quite rare duo of voice and clarinet five days before, showed that she is among them.

Azuma sang jazz standards, along with some others, accompanied by piano trio, the traditional minimum formation of jazz band.

She didn't forget to perform only with the bassist, who was the musician she met as well as played with for the first time.

The show was soothing enough to remind the audience that they didn't have to be different to enjoy the "Golden Week".
