Satoko Fujii and KAZE
Two internationally-renowned Japanese musicians + two extraordinary French musicians = electrifying new music for the world
Kaze brings together two of Japan's foremost improviser-composers - trumpeter Natsuki Tamura and pianist Satoko Fujii - with trumpeter Christian Pruvost and drummer Peter Orins from the French improvisers collective, Muzzix.
The members of this international quartet share an insatiable appetite for sonic experimentation, boundless energy and enthusiasm, and the disciplined intelligence of accomplished spontaneous composers. Melodic, abstract, mysterious, beautiful, and confrontational, Kaze plays free jazz at its most creative and powerful.
“…twists and turns, noise followed by lyrical beauty; nuanced percussion followed by powerhouse drumming; and wild cacophonies that lead into introspective solo slots. Expect the unexpected.” – All About Jazz
