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

gOur pick for the best of the festc Fujii 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 sound like 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, and Montreal, and other around the world.

Their five duet CDs are How Many? (1997),  Clouds (2002),  In Krakow, In November (2006), Chun (2008) and Muku (2012).
