O’s Notes: Trumpeter vocalist Natsuki Tamura teams up with drummer percussionist Jim Black for a free jazz extravaganza titled NatJim. The melodies are extended riffs with very melodic percussion. The mood varies from elements of happiness, to rage or surprise, and even shock. We like this duo because they are fresh, relative to what we usually hear from Tamara, yet it’s still edgy and potentially polarizing, the stuff free jazz fans love!
