Satoko Fujii

“Fujii could be the most important creative musician of our time.” – Michael Nastos, allmusic

Fujii, whose “sheer force and raw power” have been celebrated by critics and fans alike, is one of the most original voices in jazz today. In 2018 she is celebrating her kanreki – or 60th birthday – with a new recording every month. In concert and on more than 80 albums as a leader or co-leader, her music synthesizes jazz, contemporary classical, avant-rock and Japanese folk music into an innovative music instantly recognizable as hers alone.
