O’s Notes: Mahobin (Magic Bottle) is yet another configuration of pianist Satoko Fujii. This band is a quartet with musical director Natsuki Tamura (t), Lotte Anker (sax) and Ikue Mori (electronics). While the musicians have performed in various configurations in the past, this is their debut as a unit! It was recorded live at“The Big Apple“in Kobe, Japan on February 23, 2018. Fujii leans on Anker for leadership over these two extended selections allowing her to expand more freely. The result is another unique outing that bodes well. The monthly barrage of music from Fujii celebrating her 60th birthday continues!
