The Jazz Hole and Linus Wyrsch wish you a Happy New Year! This year’s first episode kicks off with a humorous conversation with two of the most celebrated musicians in contemporary improvised music: pianist and composer Satoko Fujiii and her husband of more than 30 years, trumpet player and composer Natsuki Tamura. Combined, this music power couple has released over 100 albums. In November and December alone, they came out with 3 new albums that they discuss today: their duo album Pentas, their album Mantle with drummer Ramon Lopez (both out on November 6th via Not Two Records) and their album Prickly Pear Cactus (out on December 4th via Libra Records), which was actually recorded in two different cities during the pandemic with laptop and electronics artist Ikue Mori.
