After being touched by the music of Cecil Taylor, Yuko Fujiayama moved to the US from Japan in 1987, and began performing her own original improvisational music in 1993. Here, the pianist, improviser, and longtime resident of NYC has observed, even in this multicultural city, that the “beauty of eastern expression in improvisational music” is rarely showcased, and has brought together an all-star lineup, including Jen Shyu, Graham Haynes, and Reggie Nicholson, to help her do just that.

“Her music is not unlike a Japanese haiku which can capture, in seventeen syllables, the ethos of a much lengthier and thickset poem.” —All About Jazz
