O’s Notes: There’s a surprising amount of swing on“Ninety-Nine Years“but this is still free jazz. The Berlin performance was recorded April 2017, mixed in New York late last year and just released. The combination of Fujii (p) and Tamura (t) with the German musicians is a winner and one of our most appreciated Fujii collaborations. “Unexpected Incident” starts the show followed by four other intriguing compositions. Of note is Jan Roder’s exceptional bass solo opening the title track. Fujii continues to dazzle her fan base even after 50+ recordings!
