Jazz @ The Dance Hall: Satoko Fujii & Joe Fonda
Critics and fans alike hail pianist and composer SATOKO FUJII as one of the most original voices in jazz today. Shes a virtuoso piano improviser, an original composer and a band-leader who gets the best collaborators to deliver," says John Fordham in The Guardian. In concert and on more than 80 albums as a leader or co-leader, the globe-trotting Japanese native synthesizes jazz, contemporary classical, avant-rock, and Japanese folk music into an innovative music instantly recognizable as hers alone.
Whether performing with her orchestra, combo, or playing solo piano, Satoko Fujii points the listener towards the future of music itself rather than simply providing entertainment, writes Junichi Konuma in Asahi Graph. She tours regularly appearing at festivals and clubs in the U.S., Canada, Japan, South America, and Europe. Her ultimate goal: I would love to make music that no one has heard before.
