Heavy Rotation For A Pandemic Summer

Read "Heavy Rotation For A Pandemic Summer" reviewed by Mark Corroto

In the summer of 2020 one result of the COVID-19 isolation, and artists inability to tour and perform is that they have time to deal with projects halted by this pandemic. Musicians, producers, and engineers have mixed, mastered and released an abundance of music. Many of the titles have been, and will be covered by our ...

Big in Japan, Part 3: Satoko Fujii’s Year of Living Dangerously

Read "Big in Japan, Part 3: Satoko Fujii’s Year of Living Dangerously" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In the first two parts of this series we looked at the origins of jazz in Japan and its adherence to the American style of composing, arranging and playing. Though jazz has been popular in Japan from the earliest days, it was--as in the United States--hardly met with unanimous approval in a country that prized classical ...

Satoko Fujii Orchestra Tokyo: Kikoeru - Tribute to Masaya Kimura

Read "Kikoeru - Tribute to Masaya Kimura" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Satoko Fujii closes out the celebration of her sixtieth birthday with her final monthly album of 2018, Kikoeru: Tribute to Masaya Kimura. This album is more than a celebration of one life; it's a cathartic, full-circle tribute to lives that have touched the composer and been integral to her music. This sixth recording from Fujii's Orchestra ...

Kaze: Atody Man

Read "Atody Man" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

The second offering in Satoko Fujii's 60th birthday CD-a-month marathon is by her long time quartet, Kaze. The group's instrumentation of two trumpets, piano and drums would lead you to think it's heavily experimental and abstract, but while those elements are present, there is, on Atody Man, always a sense of order to this music with ...

Satoko Fujii: un anno di celebrazioni

Read "Satoko Fujii: un anno di celebrazioni" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

La pianista e bandleader giapponese Satoko Fujii è una delle protagoniste della musica improvvisata internazionale: in veste di leader o co-leader ha pubblicato più di 80 album spaziando da lavori in solo, piccoli organici e sontuosi progetti orchestrali. In questi evidenzia una personale e avvincente sintesi tra avanguardia post-free, sperimentazione accademica ed aspetti della tradizione culturale ...

Satoko Fuji: Invisible Hand, Trouble Kaze: June, Satoko Fujii Orchestra Tokyo: Peace

Read "Satoko Fuji: Invisible Hand, Trouble Kaze: June, Satoko Fujii Orchestra Tokyo: Peace" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Tre recenti realizzazioni discografiche della pianista Satoko Fujii mettono in evidenza quanto l'ampio ventaglio della sua ispirazione sia in continuo fermento, coniugando la sperimentazione di nuovi organici strumentali allo scandaglio di tecniche compositive e improvvisative, in una rete di contrasti che danno forma a un ampio affresco in costante movimento. In particolare, emerge il lavoro in ...

Trouble Kaze: June

Read "June" reviewed by John Sharpe

In its original form, the French-Japanese collective Kaze was already a novel proposition, with the double trumpet spearhead of Natsuki Tamura and Christian Pruvost allied to Satoko Fujii's piano and Peter Orins' drums. But on June, the novelty quotient ratchets up a notch further with the doubling of the piano and drum set. That the additional ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
