Beautiful!!! I spent a few months in Norway in my younger life but unfortunately never made it as far north as Tromso.

Thanks CSL, a beautiful night indeed. What brought you to Norway, and where were you located? Mind you, it´s never to late to visit Tromso :)

Kai, I was doing month long spots in piano bars. Back in those days (mid 80s) many Norwegian hotels had piano bars . I was in Halden, Fredrickstadt, Govik, Kristiansund & Sjoholt. Usually I'd stay in Norway for two or three months at a time. I wasn't in Oslo too much but I did do an opening spot one time for a Norwegian rocker called Henning Qvitness.

CSL, your business trips beat mine by a country mile (no pun intended).

Kai, I love the light show but, sorry, it's 00's spooky little spy bird and his shadow sidekick that did it for me.

00, if you were to follow up by piping in a blackbird's aria for your next contribution to the sticky music thread, it would remind me of what I like best about Britain.

This really made my day (and my trip to Japan worth wile), I was able to let my 98-year old great aunt Haruko in Yokohama finally see and speak to her 96-year old sister Tomiko in Sukabumi (Java, Indonesia) again, communicating in Dutch with each other!

Best gift ever, ongaku. Must have blown their minds.

It kind of blows my mind that your great aunt in Yokohama has managed to retain her Dutch.

I'll have whatever she's been having to maintain such sharp mental acuity.

A bit of the old wartime hardship and some good genes /'jɛans/, my sharp minded grandfather reached the glorious age of 90...
But I have to confess, I struggle sometimes at half that age, so it may skip a generation or so ;)
