TOMAS FUJIWARA's 7 Poets Trio

Tomas Fujiwara assembled his 7 Poets Trio (with Patricia Brennan and Tomeka Reid) for the first time during a residency at the Stone in New York City in April 2018, after having previously played with Patricia in Michael Formanek's Ensemble Kolossus, and Tomeka in her Quartet. As has been the case with past ensembles of his (Tomas Fujiwara & The Hook Up, The Tomas Fujiwara Trio, and Triple Double), Tomas brought together two musicians who had never played together before, creating a brand new combination of musical personalities. The rapport was instantaneous and their debut was described by All About Jazz as "a meshing of chamber jazz, modern classical composition and improvisation, although most of Fujiwara's music sounded well organised in advance. All three players rose to an individual expression, working as a composite unit to deliver solo embellishments. Roles were malleable, as the listener decided whether everyone was soloing, or no-one. All three members were devoted to establishing a sensitive group consciousness, and they succeeded eminently." Their eponymous debut came out in 2019 on Rogue Art, and a follow up album is due out in late 2023.

with 2022 MacArthur Fellow TOMEKA REID
