Artist Biographies:

"Born on October 9, 1958 in Tokyo, Japan, Fujii began playing piano at four and received classical training until twenty, when she turned to jazz. From 1985-87, she studied at Boston's Berklee College of Music, where her teachers included Herb Pomeroy and Bill Pierce. She returned to Japan for six years before returning to the US to study at the New England Conservatory in Boston, where her teachers included George Russell, Cecil McBee, and Paul Bley, who appeared on her debut CD Something About Water (Libra, 1996).

Since then Fujii has been an innovative bandleader and soloist, a tireless seeker of new sounds, and a prolific recording artist in ensembles ranging from duos to big bands. She has showcased her astonishing range and ability approximately 80 CDs as leader or co-leader. With each new recording or new band, she explores new aspects of her art.

Regular collaborations include her New York trio with bassist Mark Dresser and drummer Jim Black, augmented by trumpeter/husband Natsuki Tamura to form the Satoki Fujii Four; her duo with Tamura; the Satoko Fujii Quartet featuring Tatsuya Yoshida of the Japanese avant-rock duo, The Ruins; Orchestra New York, which boasts the cream of New York's contemporary avant garde improvisers, including saxophonists Ellery Eskelin and Tony Malaby, trumpeters Herb Roberton and Steven Bernstein, and trombonist Curtis Hasselbring, among others; Orchestra Tokyo, drawing on that city's best improvisers; Orchestra Nagoya; Orchestra Kobe; the co-operative trio Junk Box with Tamura and percussionist John Hollenbeck; ma-do, a quartet including Tamura on trumpet, bassist Norikatsu Koreyasu, and Akira Horikoshi; the Min-Yoh Ensemble with Tamura, trombonist Hasselbring, and accordionist Andrea Parkins; the Satoko Fujii New Trio, featuring bassist Todd Nicholson and drummer Takashi Itani― plus countless engagements and collaborations with some of the world's most important improvisers."

descriptions, reviews, &c.
"Fujii, a great big band composer and eclectic post-Taylor pianist, and Yoshida, drummer for the Ruins, might have seemed an odd match. But Fujii has great ears and knew just how to steer the powerful Yoshida. There were some incredible stop-time passages, some locked-hands playing from Fujii, strange vocalising, and even a zipper solo from Yoshida. Altogether, the two seemed to be having a great deal of fun! Mike Chamberlain, Signal to Noise, Fall 2002.
Compatriots Satoko Fujii and Tatsuya Yoshida thrillingly demonstrated the virtues of Speed Metal Improv. The piano/drums duo threw itself headlong into a wild and bogglingly precise exchange of hammering percussion and jabbering voices – part battle, part hyperactive dance. A flawless composite of jumpcuts, the set spanned the musical map from hardcore and Metal to boogie-woogie and tango, ending with a hilarious impromptu rendition of “The Girl From Ipanama”.-Christopher Cox, The Wire, July 2002
