Satoko Fujii Quartet

Satoko Fujii Quartet

We're bringing in a legend of Japanese jazz! Satoko Fujii does it all, from solo performances to directing an XXL orchestra, and she accounts for a uniquely extensive discography. From 2000 to 2008, she created a furor with a powerful quartet with which she seamlessly blended thundering avant-rock and ingenious free jazz. After years of silence, the musicians have reunited, ready to unite that raw energy and mercurial compositions once again. In addition to Fujii, you will hear her partner, trumpeter Natsuki Tamura, bassist Takeharu Hayakawa and living drum legend Tatsuya Yoshida (see: Ruins, Zeni Geva,...).

LUFT (Mats Gustafsson & Erwan Keravec)

Free jazz and noise meet a bagpipe from outer space. LUFT is the duo of sax monster Mats Gustafsson (Fire! Orchestra, The End, The Thing) and bagpiper Erwan Keravec. LUFT offers a surprising take on contemporary music through an unusual meeting of instruments and personalities. Microtonal clusters, circular drones, surreal sound combinations, it's all in there. LUFT is a game, a battle, an outside chance with AIR. Combined with the Satoko Fujii Quartet already good for one of the most intriguing and promising double bills of the fall.
