Natsuki Tamura trumpet/toys
Satoko Fujii and Natsuki Tamura are a
dynamic contemporary music piano and trumpet duo who split their time
between Tokyo and New York where they regularly play and record with the
downtown jazz crowd. Their first UK tour won a four-star review from Guardian
jazz critic John Fordham and total conversion from audiences who came
with no knowledge or preconceptions and left with all the CDs they had.
Their second visit a year later included an appearance at the London Jazz
Festival (partially broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s Jazz on 3). So far
in 2002 the Satoko Fujii Quartet have toured USA and the Satoko Fujii
Trio (with Jim Black and Mark Dresser) has performed in New York and Japan.
The SF Quartet tour Europe in November 2002 when their second CD will
be released by Voiceprint. The latest New York big band CD is due for
release by Enja in spring 2003. For more information please visit Satoko’s
Anyone complaining about the lack
of 'something different' hasn't heard the music of Japanese pianist
Satoko Fujii and her husband Natsuki Tamura. Their sounds are a potent
mix of passion and calculated madness—Jazz Central Station
