About the Album

“Potential Energy” is a track off pianist-composer Satoko Fujii’s album "Yamiyo Ni Karasu." One of the most original and wide-ranging voices in modern jazz, Satoko Fujii has documented her abilities on more than 70 CDs in less than 20 years. A master of reinvention, pianist-composer Satoko Fujii transforms her New Trio into the wildly inventive quartet Tobira featuring bassist Todd Nicholson, drummer/percussionist Takashi Itani, and the addition of trumpeter Natsuki Tamura. The quartet will release its debut CD, "Yamiyo Ni Karasu", July 14, 2015 on Libra Records.

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!
