Посмотреть сведения об участниках альбома, рецензии, композиции и приобрести альбом 2011 CD от Watershed на is the newest star in pianist Satoko Fujii's growing constellation of amazing improvising groups. While the presence of her partner in music and life, virtuoso trumpeter Natsuki Tamura, is a given, Fujii's musical interactions with a seemingly endless array of top-drawer improvisers from all over the world are almost as intimate. The pair gives the sense that there are never any sidemen in their groups, only equal partners. Watershed is dedicated to the exploration of Japanese folk music in a 21st century jazz context three tracks are arrangements of traditional Japanese mel. Whitewater track from Watershed album Satoko Fujii Min-Yoh the prolific Satoko Fujii had an audience proportionate to her growing critical acclaim, the Japanese composer pianist might rival Esperanza Spalding as a popular jazz phenomenon. But Watersheds prickly textures and dissonances signal that commercial appeal isnt high on Fujiis agenda. Min- Yoh means folk music in Japanese, and Watershed, one of three new Fujii CDs, is her take on the traditional idioms of her homeland-from an avant-garde jazz perspective. 1 The Thaw 6:44 2 Whitewater 8:30 3 Takeda no Komoriuta 8:27 4 Soranbushi 5:52 5 Cascade 8:08 6 Limestone Cave 5:57 7 Hanagasa Ondo 3:33 8 Estuary 2:30.

Lastly, and I will stress the point that this is certainly not least, is the album Rafale by Fujii's new collective Kaze. Fujii was so impressed by the tunes and performance of drummer Peter Orins' ensemble that she just had to collaborate with him. Orins pointed Fujii and Tamura's attentions to trumpeter Christian Pruvost, and Kaze made their debut performance in Krakow, Poland last year. Rafale is an in concert performance, but there is a curious lack of audience noise.
