cover $15 / $10 for students

“[Fujii] switches to accordion in this context, giving the music a strong European
flair–whether evoking a café on the Left Bank of Paris or a funeral service somewhere
in the former Yugoslavia–but ultimately the tone is set by the alert contrapuntal
improvising of Kappa Maki and trombonist Neko Jaras.” – Peter Margasak, DownBeat

“4 stars…Gato Libre's DuDu follows the winning formula of its predecessors but, as with the other discs, eschews the formulaic. The result is another sublimely satisfying, elegant record
that brims with raw excitement and a reflective nostalgia.” – Hrayr Attarian, All About Jazz
