Gato Libre: NEKO

Consisting of Natsuki Tamura/tp, Yasuko Kaneko/tb and Satoko Fujii/acc, Gato Libre create rich and melancholic textures on this moody and floating album. Fujii’s accordion creates a bohemian atmosphere on pieces like the pastoral “Tama” while sighing on the abstract “ Mii.” Tamura’s horn is soft and clean while hovering on “Momo” and gasps to the wheezing squeeze box on “Yuzu” and hints of electronica are brought out with valve effects on the spacey “Hime.”
