About the Album

Stream "Rolling Down," the eighth song from pianist/composer Satoko Fujii and drummer Taysuya Yoshida's boisterous new album Baikamo, out December 13, 2019 via Libra Records. Merging art-rock muscle with free jazz and contemporary classical abstractions, Fujii and Yoshida make music that is both gleefully playful and in-your-face energetic. While Fujii and Yoshida, who perform together under the group name Toh-Kichi, had performed together since their last album “Erans" came out in 2004, they hadn’t done so regularly and hadn’t had another chance to record. “This time, we were asked by an organizer to play a concert in Hiroshima,” says Fujii. "We wanted to play some new repertoire, so we both composed new pieces for Toh-Kichi. We made a short tour after Hiroshima and we decided to record our new compositions since we had so much fun playing together again!” For all its avant-garde trapping, Toh-Kichi is a lot of fun. Fujii and Yoshida egg one another on, daring each other to take chances and rising to the occasion every time. The music may zig and zag in many directions, melodies may explode into pure sound or clashing dissonance, but it is all a high-spirited good time, an excess of joie de vivre.
