A Portrait of Satori

Satori is a Buddhist word meaning a moment of presence and inner spaciousness away from the clutter of thought, and reflects saxophonist and composer Josephine Davies’ fascination with Japanese philosophy. It is her most recent artistic project, in which she demonstrates a continuing evolution of sound and style in both her playing and her writing. The deliberate omission of a chordal instrument as well as the frequent absence of regular harmonic sequence allows the compositions to serve as a loose base for the spontaneity and creativity of the players, giving rise to a uniquely integrated trio sound.

Featuring the irrepressible musicality of saxophonist Josephine Davies, drummer James Maddren, and bassist Dave Whitford, Satori is an ever-evolving ensemble that defies the categorization of either avant-garde or mainstream jazz, instead shifting deftly and dynamically through various imaginative soundscapes according to where their shared inspiration takes them.

The band are delighted to release their third album ‘How Can We Wake?’ this October. Inspired by the writings of the Indian sage Patanjali, this suite of pieces was recorded live in the atmospheric setting of North London’s Oxford Tavern and is a beautifully creative and magical offering from this inimitable trio.

This concert is presented by Jazz North East 'Women Make Music' and comes with support from PRSF 'Open Fund'
