I have recently discovered this band and thought that you might like their relaxing and slightly off beat music.
Founded around 1975 by Simon Jeffes and Helen Liebmann it was a loose collection of other musicians that came and went depending on the music style. A mixture of folk, french and classical sounds give the music a soft background flavour. Unfortunately Simon Jeffes died in 1997 from a brain tumour, but the music is still popular and can be heard in many films or adverts.
A few pieces:
