Natsuki Tamura and Gato Libre: Sleeping Cat

Read "Sleeping Cat" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Following the example of his partner and spouse, Satoko Fujii, Natsuki Tamura has embarked on a year-long project of multiple, timed releases.

Satoko Fujii, Tatsuya Yoshida: Baikamo

Read "Baikamo" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


La collaborazione tra Satoko Fujii e il batterista Tatsuya Yoshida è antica e i due non hanno mai interrotto i concerti assieme sotto l'insegna di Toh-Kichi, sebbene dal loro precedente album--Erans, datato 2004--le occasioni si fossero fatte meno frequenti.

Futari: Underground

Read "Underground" reviewed by John Sharpe


Pandemic enforcement of geographic separation in no way inconveniences the adventurous combo of pianist Satoko Fujii and vibraphonist Taiko Saito, working together under the banner Futari. Having explored the option of a virtual band on Mosaic (Libra, 2021) by her This Is It! trio, Fujii tries a different approach on Underground, her second album with Saito ...

Futari: Beyond

Read "Beyond" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Tra le molte collaborazioni della pianista giapponese Satoko Fujii, particolarmente singolare e riuscita è questa con la connazionale vibrafonista Taiko Saito, assieme alla quale ha dato vita al duo Futari. Le due artiste si conoscono dalla metà degli anni 2000, quando si incontrarono a Berlino in occasione di un concerto della Fujii e dove la Saito ...
