The music of Japanese avant-jazz pianist and composer Satoko Fujii takes in European classical as well as the folk music of her homeland, moving as well between Cecil Taylor-inspired dissonance and Keith Jarrett-esque contemplation. One of her outlets is the quartet Tobira, which will perform at the Sanctuary for Independent Media on November 21.

Tobira’s debut, Yamiyo Ni Karasu, was released last summer on the Libra label. “With Fujii tunes, there is often the mood of entering an unsettled weather system,” writes All About Jazz reviewer Dan McClenaghan about the disc. “With full force gales giving way to eye-of-the-storm tranquility, then a wafting breeze and gentle raindrops, then a huge rumble of thunder that shakes you down to your soul.”

Here are some snippets of Tobira live in Europe in 2013:

Tobira will perform at the Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, New York, on November 21 at 8pm. Tickets are $15. For more information, call (518) 272-2390 or visit
