More About

Pianist Satoko Fujii embodies the concept of jazz as an international language like few other contemporary composer-improvisers. Half the musicians in her new quartet, Kaze, hail from Japan, while the other two come from France. The instrumentation is unusual as well: dueling trumpets, piano, and drums. The music on the group's appropriately titled debut album, Tornado, combines avant-garde jazz and Western classical traditions, notated and freely improvised material, luminous melodies, sometimes cartoonish racket, incredible power, and almost overwhelming beauty. You can check out the joyful noise of Fujii's global vision this week, when she debuts Kaze at Duende, a hot new jazz venue and restaurant in Uptown Oakland.

Tornado is their second album (not their debut).
