Hiromi is a blast! – part 1

I am writing the first part of this post while waiting for Hiromi’s concert at Jazz Alley, in Seattle, WA. I discovered Hiromi’s music in 2004, by chance, while browsing CD’s at a Barnes & Noble store in Bellevue, WA. At that time, she had just released her second album, Brain. I put the headphones on and started playing. And it was a blast! I immediately bought the CD and enjoyed it ever since. I kept following her work as a soloist and in various group settings. Her concert with Stanley Clarke few months ago at Jazz Alley was simply unbelievable. I rarely saw that kind of energy on a jazz stage, and judging from Mr. Clarke’s eyes I was not the only one in amazement. Tonight’s concert will start in 45 minutes or so, and I am so excited. If you like jazz, energy, creativity, improvisation, check Hiromi’s work at her website (requires Flash) or Concord. You won’t regret it…

  1. Thanks for this suggestion. She plays with an incredible energy. Whe’s coming to Italy in July but I’ll be not able to attend to a live concert, but now she’s definitely on my radar!

  2. I’ll be in Cesena on 30/06 and 01/07 visiting a customers. I need more time for planning but I’ll try another time she’ll be around!
