SATOKO FUJII SOLO

gWhat Wadada Leo Smith is to the trumpet, Satoko Fujii is to the piano: one of the most riveting improvisers to ever play the instrument....h – Alan Young, New York Music Daily

gMost vivid is the totality of her musicianship.  Fujii utilizes the whole of the means at her disposalc. Her tempos ebb and flow as naturally as drawing a breathc Itfs particularly encouraging to hear a pianist of her generation who is possessed of such a mature concept of space.h – Chris Kelsey, Cadence.

With her crystalline piano sound, special sense of the space, and strong concept of structure Satoko Fujiifs solo performances and distinctive and unforgettable.  Playing solo seems to both liberate and refine her musical storytelling abilities. Fujii celebrated the 20th anniversary of her Libra Records label in 2017 with twelve solo concerts.  Alone at the keyboard, she has held audiences spellbound
at clubs throughout Europe, Australia and the US as well as at festivals including the San Francisco Jazz Festival, the Toronto International Jazz Festival, the Yokohama Promenade Jazz Festival, the Melbourne Womenfs Jazz Festival, Saalfelden Jazz Festival, Cerkno Jazz Festival and many others worldwide.

She has released five solo CDs: Indication (1997), Sketches (2004), Gen Himmel (2013), Invisible Hand (2016) and Solo (2018).
