O’s Notes: It is sometime difficult to engage in the free jazz world of trumpeter Natsuki Tamura. He coaxes a wide array of sounds from his horn and associated toys in a coordinated effort with bassist Alexander Frangenheim. Together they create an open, provocative landscape that is almost gone! Yes, you can translate that to mean this eclectic assemblage is palatable. The recording quality and dynamics enrich the experience and after the initial shock, you find yourself engaged.
