Inventive New Quartet to Debut
The electrifying jazz pianist Satoko Fujii performs with her quartet Tobira, featuring Natsuki Tamura (trumpet), Todd Nicholson (bass) and Takashi Itani (drums), on Saturday, November 21, at The Sanctuary for Independent Media, located at 3361 6th Avenue in Troy, N.Y. Admission to the all-ages concert is $15. Call 518-272-2390 or visit mediasanctuary.org for more information. A master of reinvention, Satoko Fujii transformed her New Trio into the wildly inventive quartet Tobira with the addition of trumpeter Natsuki Tamura. This presentation is made possible by volunteer labor, small financial contributions from thousands of patrons of The Sanctuary for Independent Media and support from the New York State Council on the Arts. The Sanctuary for Independent Media is a telecommunications production facility dedicated to community media arts, located in a historic former church. It hosts screening, production and performance facilities, training in media production and a meeting space for artists, activists and independent media makers of all kinds.
