Jazz, contemporary classical and traditional Japanese folk music blend seamlessly in Satoko Fujii’s powerful and unique musical universe. Her first CD for Tzadik presents her in three intimate groupings: in duo with her long time associate Sachi Hayasaka, in trio with the dynamic NY rhythm section of Mark Dresser and Jim Black, and of course her critically-acclaimed solo playing which has recently been compared to the work of Keith Jarrett and Don Pullen.

A student of Paul Bley, George Russell and Cecil McBee, Satoko is forging a new music with the help of some of the best experimental musicians in Jazz and Kitsune-Bi is the best introduction to her remarkable sound world.
