About the Album

"Neppa" is a track from Satoko Fujii's album "Kikoeru." "Kikoeru," Satoko Fujii's Orchestra Tokyo's sixth release in just over two decades, is their most diverse and rollicking album ever. The album brings to life four compositions by Fujii and two by trumpeter Natsuki Tamura. The album features composer/pianist Fujii, soprano and alto saxophonist Sachi Hayasaka, alto saxophonist Kunihiro Izumi, tenor saxophonists Kenichi Matsumoto and Daisuke Fujiwara, baritone saxophonist Ryuichi Yoshida, trumpet players Natsuki Tamura, Yoshihito Fukumoto, Takao Watanabe, and Yusaku Shirotani, trombone players Haguregumo Nagamatsu, Yasuyuki Takahashi, and Toshihiro Koike, bassist Toshiki Nagata, and drummer Akira Horikoshi. This is the last of her CD-a-month marathon celebrating her kanreki — 60th birthday.

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!
