New CD - Hiromi

Alive is het nieuwe album van de Japanse pianiste Hiromi met negen eigen gecomponeerde nummers welke volgens Hiromi staan voor de fases van het leven waar iedereen mee te maken krijgt tussen de geboorte en de dood. Daarnaast staat de titel Alive voor de vier jaar dat ze met het trio live speelt, het album "ademt, groeit, veranderd en evolueert".

Just out, the latest release of this phenominal jazz pianist/componist. Marian McPartland about Hiromi in 2010: "It was very exciting having her on my program; I don't know where she got her technique. I think it's natural. And I think she is going to go very far." Hiromi was born in Shizuoka, Japan, in 1979, and took her first piano lessons at age 6. As a student, she absorbed a range of musical styles, and by age 17, she'd performed with both the Czech Philharmonic and Chick Corea. Her jazz mentors include Ahmad Jamal and veteran bassist Richard Evans.
From June 25 through the 29th she is performing with The Trio Project at the Blue Note in New York. Thereafter off for a European tour. See her website for a date where she will be near you!
