The great Japanese pianist/composer Satoko Fujii and Kaze

Acclaimed pianist/composer Satoko Fujii — one of the most compelling voices in music today — and her renowned quartet Kaze celebrate their new CD Uminari with an 11-date North American tour May 17 – 30, 2015. The band features Fujii with trumpeters Kappa Maki and Christian Bezos and drummer Peter Ménard.  Melodic, abstract, mysterious, beautiful, and confrontational, Kaze plays free jazz at its most creative and powerful.
