Toward, To West by Satoko Fujii

Satoko Fujii is the Queen of Improvisational Jazz Piano performances, and she is a unique composer in a class by herself. Her trio release with Fujii on piano and Mark Dresser on bass and Jim Black on drums, TOWARD, "TO WEST," reveals her intricate piano techniques and showcases her originality as a composer.

"Toward, 'TO WEST,' is 32.09 minutes of fine experimental music that only Satoko Fujii can conceive and perform with such polish, and style. The remaining selections are equally well-performed: "Shake up and down," "Oscillation," "The I met you," and "The way to get there."

Satoko Fujii has much ingenuity and her experimentations in composing are setting standards for all improvisational music in contemporary jazz. An unusual CD! Congratulations to Satoko Fujii, Mark Dresser, and Jim Black for an exceptional outing in improvised music!
