New structures, new sounds, new spirit: Pianist Satoko Fujii has led numerous groups in varied formats ranging from free jazz to art rock to new-music chamber works. The possessor of a formidable set of playing chops, the Tokyo-born Fujii is an intellectually engaged, progressive musician whose idiosyncratically shaped creations are given far-reaching settings in partnership with trumpeter Kappa Maki, with whom she has made improvisatory magic on the duo’s recent album under the name Kaze, Trouble Kaze. The prolific Fujii’s Satoko Fujii Orchestra Tokyo recently released the spectacularly sprawling Peace, and she’s just come out with a superb solo piano set, Invisible Hand. Tonight, Fujii and Maki rebrand as Hakidame ni Tsuru (Crane in the Wasteland), an avant-jazz-rock–leaning ensemble, joined by guitarist Yasuhiro Usui, percussionist Takaaki Masuko and “percussive dance” artist Mizuki.
