About Satoko Fujii Kaze:
Melodic, abstract, mysterious, beautiful, and confrontational, Kaze plays free jazz at its most creative and powerful. 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.
The group has released four acclaimed recordings - 2011’s Rafale, 2013’s Tornado, 2015’s Uminari and 2018’s Atody Man which The Wire says “is an exhilarating demonstration of the stylistic versatility and inventiveness of this exceptional group'’.
“...the rarely heard sound of two trumpets collaborating, interweaving and cross-talking is at the center of the group Kaze, whose penultimate set of the festival was also one of the high points of the overall program.” – Josef Woodard, DownBeat
“… one of the most musically dynamic and intense "jazz" sets of the year… If you think you can imagine what piano, drums, and two trumpets will sound like, think again.” — Derk Richardson, KPFA Radio
“One of the best gigs I’ve seen this year…one of my favorite working groups.” – Steve Dalachinsky, The Brooklyn Rail
“[Fujii] is a demon on the keys, capable of delicately pretty melodies as easily as full-keyboard chord-blocks, and amazingly controlled inside-the-piano stringwork.” – Byron Coley
