Satoko Fujii + Natsuki Tamura (Japan) with Simon Barker and Alister Spence

BOOK NOW$20/$15

She [Fujii] is the Ellington of free jazz. – Bob Rusch, Cadence
[Tamura] unquestionably one of the most adventurous trumpet players on the scene today. – Marc Chenard, Coda

For one night only two of Japan’s most exciting improvisers and composers Satoko Fujii (piano), and Natsuki Tamura (trumpet) will join with the creative forces of Simon Barker (drums), and Alister Spence (fender rhodes electric piano and pedals). Over the last 20 years Fujii and Tamura have developed a strong individual music that spans many genres, blending jazz, contemporary classical, rock, and traditional Japanese music into an innovative synthesis instantly recognizable as theirs alone. Music that ranges from simple melodies of folk song, the harmonic sophistication of jazz, the rhythmic power of rock, and the extended forms of symphonic composers.

Set 1: Tamura/Barker
Set 2: Fujii/Spence
Set 3: Fujii/Tamura/Spence/Barker

Unpredictable, wildly creative, and uncompromising…Fujii is an absolutely essential listen for anyone interested in the future of jazz. – Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz
