Pianist-composer Satoko Fujii brought her new, wildly inventive jazz quartet Tobira to Troy’s Sanctuary for Independent Media on a recent Saturday night in support of the band’s debut album on Libra Records, Yamiyo Ni Karasu.

Certainly one of the most prolific, original and wide-ranging voices in contemporary modern jazz, Satoko Fujii has documented her astonishing talents on more than 70 CDs over the course of the past 20 years.

The Troy concert was one of only four North American tour stops by the band, which also featured bassist Todd Nicholson, trumpeter Kappa Maki and drummer Yoshi Shutto.
