  • The line-up etc. for "Jo": Featuring Chris Speed, Briggan Krauss, Oscar Noriega, David Castiglione & Mike Sims on reeds, Jack Walrath, Dave Ballou, Natsuki Tamura & John Carlson on trumpets, Joe Fiedler & Curtis Hasselbring on trombones, Satoko on piano, Stomu Takeishi on bass & Aaron Alexander on drums. Although pianist/composer Satoko Fujii has some half dozen cds out in her native land of Japan, this is only her second domestic release, the first was a fine trio/duo cd on Tzadik. I have long been a fan of creative/jazz orchestra music, but so little of it seems to be noticed. Who else besides Muhal Richard Abrams & William Parker are able to keep their orchestras playing and recording with any consistency in these parts?!? Satoko's orchestra is based also in NY and has played some fine sets at Tonic twice in the past year.
