Prism / Tabula Rasa
Years in the making, the music on this debut album Prism blends thought-provoking lyrics with a strikingly original combination of classical, Celtic and jazz music with Spanish influences and Brazilian rhythms. This is the reason for the ensemble name 'Tabula Rasa' - it is starting with a musical clean slate, with the express aim of creating a new, vital sound hitherto unknown in Australia.
The core members of Tabula Rasa consist of the well-known jazz singer, Linda Cable and the astonishing flamenco guitar duo of Robert Bratetich and Mario Lattuada. An array of guest artists include saxophonist/flautist Bill Harrower and drummer extraordinaire David Jones.
