Hiromi

Pianist and composer Hiromi Uehara was born in Shizuoka, Japan, in 1979. At the age of six she started playing piano. Within a year, she was a student of the Yamaha School of Music, whose progressive approach to musical training allowed the young student to shape her technical skills, writing, and performing. After relocating to the United States in 1999, she continued her studies at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, where she received a full scholarship. It was there that Hiromi developed her varied musical taste, encompassing everyone from J.S. Bach to Sly & the Family Stone. While at Berklee, she also had the opportunity to play with jazz piano legends Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea, and her mentor, Ahmad Jamal. In 2003, Hiromi recorded her first disc, Another Mind, on the Telarc label, produced by Jamal. Brain was released a year later, followed by the pianist's third trio album for Telarc, Spiral, in 2006. For her next album, Hiromi augmented her trio with avant-fusion guitarist Dave Fiuczynski, releasing Time Control in early 2007. Beyond Standard, a thematic continuation of Time Control, was also recorded with her Sonicbloom trio and released a year later. The solo piano set Place to Be followed in 2010.

For 2011's electro-acoustic Voice, Hiromi formed the Trio Project with bassist Anthony Jackson and Simon Phillips. 2012 saw the issue of the Live at Marciac DVD. After a break and festival appearances, Hiromi & the Trio Project returned to the studio and delivered Move in 2013; it was followed by the all-acoustic Alive in the summer of 2014, and a world tour. ~ Al Campbell, Rovi

I wasn't paying attention as I had Pandora on while I was in the yard.i thought this was some new Return To Forever. Imagine how surprised I was to find out that it was Hiromi! Incredible talent!
Sensational! Can't believe I hadn't heard her before. What a master of the newer and older way of playing. I can even hear some Errol Garner in there - plus heaps of Hiromi!
Long live the synth keyboard, Piano and B-3 Organ virtuoso's. Great to see her talent and style being promoted in this culture where the guitars have seemed to take over as primary. All instruments have their special place, especially the Synths, which is not only for the 1980's as many say. All the best & thank you Hiromi for what you do bringing inspiration back to the keyboard in a Fresh way!
I'm sorry, but I can't stand her. She starts out every piece with something nice for a moment then it turns into something terrible. Also, I'm convinced Pandora is paid to feature her music, because she shows up on so many of my stations, EVEN after i reject every one of them!

Her virtuosity is awe-inspirin g - what else can you say? But her heart is what makes Hiromi shine like the brightest star in modern jazz, and she might be. It's beyond great playing, when she plays you can feel the emotion through the piano. In a live setting, she is magical. I can't explain it any other way. Rarely have I ever been moved in the hundreds of shows I've seen like I have the times I've seen her.
I showed a classical pianist Hiromi a year back. He know loves Jazz fusion and Avant-Garde more than anything.
God bless Hiromi. Not only is she an incredible musician, but her music has brought me many smiles!
I brought my girlfriend, who is a piano genius herself, to a Hiromi show last year. Her jaw hit the floor and stayed there for the entire show. Afterward she said. I think she's better than Chick Corea, Keith Emerson and those guys... She still has not backed down from that statement a year later...
I have seen several Hiromi performances at the DAKOTA jazz club in Minneapolis. I like to think of her as the FRANZ LIST of modern jazz. She is perhaps the most technically accomplished of any jazz player currently around and maybe even the equal of TATUM. If you need convincing, listen to one of her versions of I:ve got Rhythm. on YOUTUBE.

I saw her at yoshi's in Oakland 2012, she made my 35 year fascination of Keith Emerson fade away to now bow down to her piano prowess! She is by far the best live performer out of the 200 some odd concerts I have been to in my lifetime! Gives new energy to piano lovers.
NEW AGE, WITH A FLARE ,OF SHOW--OFF--A . CLASICAL. SIDE. SHING THROUGH.

I saw Hiromi this spring. She is amazing. I was even able to speak to her after the performance. When I told her she was so much like Keith Jarrett she blushed and thanked me profusely. Such a talent and still a modest person.
She's the best thing to come along in many years. It's seems a miracle that a girl in her twenties comes along and forges an already distinguishe d career in jazz fusion-a dead language that only existed a few years in the first place with as few real artists. Just so happens, I've carried the fusion torch all along. Composing,pe r f o r m i n g , i n t e r p r e t a t i o n , t r a i l blazing, she's whole package.

Great music!!!!
Hiromi is the best artist I have ever heard in the jazz fusion world. She gives all the greats are real run for their money. Pure talent and she does everything so effortlessly . She is carrying on the great traditions started in the 70's when the most freedom of expression was allowed by the industry. Now everyone is forced to fit into a very narrow style of music for marketing purposes. Please don't ever change Hiromi !

Two thumbs up!!!
just watched one of your shows in Boston the best sound I have heard in a long time. And I got to meet Hiromi in person and got a signed CD sweet thanks so much. Wish you much success. from the Meireles Family
Nice comments, and well deserved, except the nostalgic guy that's upset because she isn't stuck in whatever past period he's stuck in, which he's calling traditional jazz. Thank goodness she chose Chick's departure instead of joining the other risk-free players of nostalgia jazz. She is fantasticall y gifted, as performer, composer and bandleader. Keep tearing it up girl! We LOVE you; I can't wait to see you with the trio! Your music is more uplifting to me than words can describe!

snapplefact 2704: Hiromi was beaten and whipped until she play good from a young age
I love the fact is carries on the traditions of jazz with such talent and at such a young age, I am so glad I found her. Watch the I've Got Rhythm video on You Tube...AMAZI N G .
Espectacular
sounds like some jazzy jeff beck too!
And I thought Bill Evans was the only jazz pianist I could ever love...
I saw Hiromi, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White at Blue Note. Inspirationa l .
royl7
This gal is arguably the best pianist that ever was. Her skill level is of course fabulous but If you study some of those You Tube vids....she not only can play different melodies with each hand but different timing as well. Absolutely stunning talent....ho p e the industry doesn't ruin her.

Going to see her at Yoshi's with Anthony Jackson and Simmon Phillips this week.
reggie_smash
I'm as in love with her as the rest of you are. Wow.
enthusiasm and life oozes out of her music.

I'm in love!! Unbelievable artistry and scope! What interpretati o n and dexterity!
jmiles876
Saw Hiromi at Blues Alley in DC last spring with Stanley Clark. Stanley was great also, but Hiromi stole the show!
giacasto
very very nice
Magnificent artist. It would take paragraphs of words to express.
Stanley Clarke, Lenny White and Hiromi in the Blue Note in NY - one of the more memorable concerts I listened to. And I have listened to a few in my life...
antabbo
I LOVE YOUR MUSIC....and this summer i have come to know Tony Grey and Dave Fiuczynsky.. . . . . . . t h e y are both awesome musicians... . . .
You go, girl!
She sure did Ted! but she is young, and energetic. McCoy was still amazing anyway, styled and restrained and just cool.
I felt bad because she outplayed McCoy Tyner (the opener!) at that Central Park show
justo.torres
Saw her for the first time last night at the Summer Stage in Central Park featured with the Stanley Clarke Band and she truly rocked the park away! I'm looking forward to seeing more of her any chance I get.
Hiromi is an amazingly creative and innovative composer and artist. Her progressive and hard-driving style make for energetic enjoyment of this audio art addition to all that is spontaneous and new. I could listen to hours and hours of her music and never tire. More, more, and then some!
very funky!
galibear
this is THE S**T JAPANNNNNNN NIPPPOOOOONN N N
this is hi end musical comp. excellent.
First time I have heard this ladies piano. Very flowing and confident. She's compared with Marcin Wasilewski. WOW! that's a big jump. I must hear more...
bored_zephyr
Woah this is sick
Dear Hiromi: This is where your true genius is demonstrated best.
Dear Hiromi: You have chosen Chick's departure from traditional jazz. I'm sure there is an audience of spaced out listeners who nod their head to the beats created, but can't remember your name in the morning. Please come back home before you are nothing but a memory of what once was.
Watch Hiromi Uehara "XYZ" on YouTube, and fasten your seat belt.
Absolutely amazing. I love her jazzy style. Japan has so much to offer, I really wish Pandora would get more Japanese artists on the roster!
she is best damn piano player i have ever heard, for someone so young, and clearly doesnt "fit the mold". awesome! she has impeccable timing. wow.
Ain't she the greatest.
