Hiromi "..attacked the keyboard with a passion that was frenetic and all consuming.." - examiner.com
If you missed Hiromi Uehara's two visits to Mosaic in 2006, here's your chance to experience her dynamic, high-energy live performance!
Pianist-composer Hiromi returns to the Esplanade Concert Hall with The Trio Project, which sees her performing alongside pioneering six-string electric bassist Anthony Jackson and renowned and respected drummer Steve Smith. This promises to be a night of dazzling jazz musicianship and improvisation.
An infectious personality who’s prodigiously talented, Hiromi is a virtuosic Japanese pianist who caught the attention of jazz legends Oscar Peterson, Ahmad Jamal and Chick Corea. When she was only 17, Chick Corea spotted her at Yamaha School of Music in Tokyo and the very next day, he ended his Tokyo Jazz Festival concert by having her come on stage to improvise with him on the piano.
Since her 2003 Telarc debut, Another Mind, which received the Recording Industry of Japan’s Jazz Album of the Year award, Hiromi has electrified audiences and critics around the world. She possesses a creative energy that defies the conventional parameters of jazz and pushes musicianship and composition to unprecedented levels of complexity and sophistication.
Her award-winning streak continued with her critically acclaimed albums Brain, Spiral and Place to Be, cementing her reputation as an innovator in jazz, jazz fusion and post-bop. In 2011, Hiromi returns to the jazz trio format and released the album Voice together with Anthony Jackson and Simon Phillips.
When asked about the inspiration for Voice, Hiromi said, "I called this album Voice because I believe that people’s real voices are expressed in their emotions. It’s not something that you really say. It’s more something that you have in your heart. It’s your true voice. Instrumental music is very similar. We don’t have any words or any lyrics to go with it. It’s the true voice that we don’t really put into words, but we feel it when it’s real."
Witness a jazz trio at the top of their game. Join Hiromi together with Anthony Jackson and Steve Smith for an emotional evening and find your voice.
