Thomas Fujiwara and the Hook Up

Tomas Fujiwara—a highly refined and sensitive drummer who often works with Taylor Ho Bynum and other cutting-edge local jazzers—leads his own quintet with saxist Brian Settles, trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson, guitarist Mary Halvorson and bassist Danton Boller. As heard on a head-turning new CD, Actionspeak, Fujiwara’s writing marries postbop elegance to propulsive groove and subtle abstraction.
