About the Album
“Kaineko” is the first track of the eighth release by Gato Libre, the trio led by Japanese trumpeter/composer Natsuki Tamura with Satoko Fujii, accordion and Yasuko Kaneko, trombone. The recording, out July 10, 2020 via Libra Records, draws listeners in with its lyricism and simple melodies. Yet it is a deceptive simplicity. The trio develop their solos to sustain a meditative atmosphere as they play, blending improvisation and composition into an integrated whole. It all sounds effortless and relaxed, but it is the product of great musical discipline, close listening, and a sophisticated understanding of form. A quiet masterpiece of virtuosity masquerading as folk-like simplicity, the album contains showcases sonic variety and musical detail in the meditative unfolding of the performances.
