O’s Notes: This configuration of Gato Libre features Satoko Fujii (accordion), Yasuko Kaneko (tb) and trumpeter, producer Natsuki Tamura. All three are in rare form, extracting music and percussive sounds from their instruments on Sleeping Cat, yet another exercise in creativity. The familiarity of the musicians makes their free, spontaneous expression well-coordinated yet full of adventure. The Cats are “Sleeping”, “Walking”, “Running”, “Eating” and “Laughing” over 50 minutes.
