Two internationally-renowned Japanese musicians two extraordinary French musicians = electrifying new music for the world. Natsuki Tamura – trumpet Christian Pruvost – trumpet Satoko Fujii – piano Peter Orins- drums 2011 best live show: Masahiko Yuh, Jazz Tokyo “I first heard Kaze at Jazz Art Sengawa 2011. Their performance was exceptional, with their unusual instrumentation of two trumpets, drums, and a piano. Their music reflected the wind, the breeze, the wind, and the first gale in spring Kaze. They are a fantastic new group on jazz’s scene. – Koich Makigami, Artistic Director of Jazz Art Sengawa Formed only seven months before their remarkable debut recording Rafale, Kaze brings together trumpeter Natsuki Tamura and pianist Satoko Fujii, two of Japan’s foremost improviser-composers, with trumpeter Christian Pruvost and drummer Peter Orins from the French improvisers collective, Muzzix. This international quartet shares an insatiable hunger for sound experimentation, boundless energy, enthusiasm, and the disciplined intelligence that comes from being spontaneous composers. Kaze is free jazz at its best. His music is melodic, abstract and beautiful. Their debut CD, recorded in Krakow, Poland, and released July 2011, received rave reviews at www.satokofujii.com
