Satoko Fujii : Pianist, Composer

Welcome! Thank you for visiting!!

Happy New Year!!

Wish we all a healthy and peaceful year 2023!

Over the last year, we have been able to do many projects while the world is slowly returning to normal. Due to the Covid-19, all overseas tours had been canceled since February 2020, but in June 2022, after 2 years and 4 months, we could tour in Europe, in America in September, and again in Europe from October to November. Natsuki released CD “Summer Tree”, and five digital albums “Eclectic”, “Sleeping Cat”, “Iyaho”, “5 Trumpets” and “Lightning.” Satoko released “Thread of Light” and “Hyaku One Hundred Dreams,” and digital albums “When You Turn off the Light vol.1,2, and 3” and “Bokyaku.”

Above all, I was so happy to return to New York for my 100th album as a leader, “Hyaku One hundred Dreams” with my dream band.

Well, from January this year, live performances and tours are jam-packed. On January 5th and 8th, the trio Junk Box with John Hollenbeck will perform for the first time in Japan. On January 15 we have a whole day concert with 6 sets at Pit Inn, Shinjuku. (Part of the performance will be streamed at, https://streaming.pit-inn.com ), and from the 17th, the trio SAN, which debuted in Europe last June, will have our first Japan tour.
