Night 2 of a 2 nights engagement.
Two internationally-renowned Japanese musicians + two extraordinary French musicians = electrifying new music for the world.
"I first heard Kaze at Jazz Art Sengawa 2011. The group has unusual instrumentation - two trumpets, drums and a piano - and their performance was extraordinary... I actually felt that their music expressed the wind itself, the turbulence, breeze, whirlwind, the first gale of spring....Kaze is a wonderful new group on the jazz scene." - Koich Makigami, Artistic Director of Jazz Art Sengawa
Formed only seven months before their remarkable debut recording Rafale, Kaze brings together trumpeter Natsuki Tamura and pianist Satoko Fujii, two of Japan's foremost improviser-composers, with trumpeter Christian Pruvost and drummer Peter Orins from the French improvisers collective, Muzzix.
The members of this international quartet share an insatiable appetite for sonic experimentation, boundless energy and enthusiasm, and the disciplined intelligence of accomplished spontaneous composers. Melodic, abstract, mysterious, beautiful, and confrontational, Kaze plays free jazz at its most creative and powerful.
