NATSAT Duo

Natsuki Tamura – trumpet
Satoko Fujii – piano

gThe wife-husband team from Japan was simply brilliant. Though their work has a fair amount of compositional structure, it consistently reveals a wide-open and unpredictable nature that makes its performance a thrilling ride for the listener.h – Steve Feeney, Portland Press Herald

 gTheirs is a relationship that seems to exist on another musical level, one where inspiring one another is always in the cards and pushing the listenerfs boundaries while charming the palette is always on the agenda.h – Jordan Richardson, Something Else! Reviews

gFujii has a way of pulling the most powerful and expressive sounds out of the pianoc And the pair is better than the sum of its parts. Intuition and communication like that is rare.h – Adam Kinner, The Montreal Gazette


Since 1997, Tamura and Fujiifs powerful collaboration has enlightened and engaged listeners.  Their repertoire ranges from total improvisation to Tamurafs deeply beautiful, world-music influenced compositions and Fujiifs compositions with their complicating meter, line, and harmony. With just two instruments, they can create anything from a quiet Japanese traditional song to the blast of a crazy large ensemble. They have wowed audiences at jazz festivals in London, Vancouver, Italy, and Montreal and other venues around the world.

Their six duo CDs are How Many? (1997), Clouds (2002), In Krakow, In November (2006), Chun (2008), Muku (2012) and Kisaragi (2017).
