Reseña de álbum

Let's just say that at the end of this unlikely meeting between pianist Satoko Fujii and drummer Tatsuya Yoshida (of the group Ruins) at the 2002 Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville, fans of the latter were very happy, fans of the former very puzzled. A few months earlier Fujii had introduced her new quartet, which featured Yoshida (along with her husband, Natsuki Tamura, on trumpet and bassist Takeharu Hayakawa), but the group's debut album, Vulcan, as excellent as it is, doesn't prepare for the onslaught of Toh-Kichi. For this duo date — a first — pianist and drummer devised a set of compositions (new and old) and improvisations that takes the form of a classic Ruins concert: fast-paced, hyperactive, at times downright ludicrous. Case in point: The zipper fly solo in "Arabiondo," stupid and unashamed in a very entertaining way. Hearing the delicate and frail-looking Fujii vocalize with Yoshida in his invented language is a stunning (and one must admit, convincing) experience. The co-written pieces would fit snugly in a Ruins set list any day (with a special mention going to "Boragh Boragh"), but slipped into, say, one of Fujii's solo performances, would make no sense at all. Fujii comes through as a force to be reckoned with, her playing ferocious and heavy — let's hope she gets more invitations from the rock realm. Tracks segue in pure Ruins fashion, the album providing a non-stop roller-coaster ride that leaves the listener exhausted after its 48 minutes. Fans of the pianist's trio recordings may find this album hard to swallow. That's why it gets a lower star ranking; please understand that doing so takes nothing away from Fujii's stellar playing or from the exciting exuberance of this session. ~ François Couture, Rovi

Años de actividad: '90s, '00s

Japanese-born pianist Satoko Fujii was one of the more exciting new voices to emerge in avant-garde jazz during the '90s, capable of dissonant, post-Cecil Taylor free improvisation, lovely solo piano ruminations influenced by Japanese folk and classical music, and advanced big band charts given to fiery collective improvisation. Fujii began playing piano at age four, studying classical music for the next 16 years; however, when she discovered that her natural flair for improvisation had nearly been...
