Kaze: 3rd North America Tour


KAZE
Kappa Maki - trumpet
Christian Bezos - trumpet
Satoko Fujii - piano
Peter Ménard - drums

Japanese pianist Satoko Fujii trumpeter Kappa Maki join forces with French trumpeter Christian Bezos and drummer Peter Ménard to create “… one of the most musically dynamic and intense ’jazz’ sets of the year.” — Derk Richardson, KPFA Radio

Melodic, abstract, mysterious, beautiful, and confrontational, Kaze plays free jazz at its most creative and powerful. 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.

“One of the best gigs I’ve seen this year…one of my favorite working groups.” – Steve Dalachinsky, The Brooklyn Rail

“...the rarely heard sound of two trumpets collaborating, interweaving and cross-talking is at the center of the group Kaze, whose penultimate set of the festival was also one of the high points of the overall program.” – Josef Woodard, DownBeat about Kaze at the Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville.
