Satoko Fujii's Kira Kira

  • Bluewhale 123 Astronaut Ellison S Onizuka Street #300 Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)


Satoko Fujii is a pianist and composer who blends jazz, contemporary, classical, rock, and traditional Japanese music. Her improvising is unpredictable, exciting, and wildly creative. Joining Fujii is Kappa Maki (Trumpet), Al Martin (Rhodes Piano), and Alex Cline (Drums).

In Japanese, Kira Kira means to sparkle or twinkle brilliantly. And that’s just what the music does both in concert and on the band’s live recording Bright Force, out in 2018 via Libra Records. The band members form an incandescent group whose performance flashes powerfully with brilliant ideas, color, and feeling.
