TOMAS FUJIWARA’S TRIPLE DOUBLE

October / November 2020

“The results are electrifying and relentless. Brainy new-fusion that takes the roof off. One of the most exciting releases of the year.” Michael J. Agovino (Village Voice)

"Fujiwara's compositions have an organic logic with surprising twists and turns that still make eminent sense, and the music is by turns subtly beautiful and fiercely aggressive. Remarkably, despite each having a dynamic personality behind the kit, Fujiwara and Cleaver mesh seamlessly in their percussive rapport, and the entire band feeds off of the collective energy they create.” Troy Dostert (All About Jazz) 

“Fujiwara and company go beyond the ‘sum of their parts’ cliche. The group is in full attack mode early on, letting up only for note-bending interludes…they build a dense tension that is rarely released. The result is so percussive that I can still feel the reverberations in my chest after the album is over. Can’t imagine what this would be like live. Highly recommended.” Mike Borella (Avant Music News)
“Drummer Tomas Fuijwara works with rhythm as a pliable substance, solid but ever shifting. His style is forward-driving but rarely blunt or aggressive, and never random. He has a way of spreading out the center of a pulse while setting up a rigorous scaffolding of restraint...a conception of the drum set as a full-canvas instrument, almost orchestral in its scope" (Nate Chinen, The New York Times)
