Dai Fujikura: Joule

"Taka Kigawa played with coolly precise virtuosity." - Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times

"Joule by Dai Fujikura, was equally complex, but the title gave it away. Mr. Fujikura was dealing with a measurement of energy, and his energetic excesses made a lot more sense. For half the time, this was the most forward jazz, taking Thelonius Monk into the 21st Century, pointed polyrhythms, syncopations which suddenly stop, taking Mr. Kigawa’s fingers to the furthest registers of the keyboard. Once again, this energy between piano and piano-player was without any space in between, a kind of String Theory permanent vibration." - Harry Rolnick, Concert.Net
