Satoko Fujii ma-do



Natsuki Tamura – trumpet
Satoko Fujii – piano
Norikatsu Koreyasu – bass
Akira Horikoshi – drums

gFor a small group, ma-do sounds utterly huge, and thatfs a testament not only to Fujiifs writing and technical skill, but also to her cohorts – swirling and unruly at one moment, deft and wiry the next, punchy and rollicking another, their empathy is astounding.h ⎯ Clifford Allen, Bagatellen

This bandfs name, like itfs music, has many layers. Ma-do means gwindowh in Japanese. But gmah also means gthe silence between notes.h Fujii chose the name to show how the music opens to the outside (just like window) and that silence can have more meaning than notes. In an acoustic setting, the groupfs absorbing improvisations explore subtle textures and tone colors, using silence and group interaction to build brilliant collages of sound, melody, and rhythm.

They have released three CDs, Heat Wave (2008), Desert Ship (2010), and Time Stands Still(2011).
