Fiona's Comments

The magnetic call of the killer whale, a frequency so close to beautiful you'll do well to avoid. It took a lot of vibrating atoms to share this. Presumably, that's why the last track of the album is called Stillness.

About the Album

"Liberation" is a track from "Aspiration" featuring pianist and composer Satoko Fujii, trumpeters Wadada Leo Smith and Natsuki Tamura, and laptop player Ikue Mori. Although this is the first time they have worked together as a group, there are ties among them that contribute to the music's beauty and coherence. "Aspiration" is about more than music- it is about sharing and working together, about finding something beautiful and making it more so, and about the spiritual bonds that unite us all.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
