The Jazz Session #47: Satoko Fujii

Posted under Pianists & Podcast


Jason Crane interviews pianist and composer Satoko Fujii. Fujii has released four new recordings in 2008, her 50th birthday year. These records find her with her New York trio; on accordion in the avant-folk-jazz group of her husband, trumpeter Natsuki Tamura; in a quartet with some of Japan’s most talented improvising musicians; and in a second trio with both American and Japanese musicians. Far from slowing down in her middle years, Fujii seems to be pushing herself even more relentlessly, searching for new and exciting ways of expressing her musical ideas.

    I loved this conversation with Satoko Fujii! She’s so fun. Loved the last song as well. Thanks for highlighting so many Japanese artists. It combines two of my favorites things, jazz and japan/japanese.
