5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 6 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Voice (Audio CD)
Recently (Feb 2012) managed to catch a performance by Hiromi's trio in Europe in which they performed much of this material. The concert featured Anthony Jackson on bass (as on CD) plus Steve Smith on drums. The concert was simply wonderful. My review cannot capture just how good Hiromi is live but you can at least get a flavour from this CD. Certainly the best and most enjoyable piano trio that I have seen since the much-lamented EST (and that includes some good ones such as John Law's and Zoe Rahman's). The fact that Hiromi can get sidemen such as Jackson and Smith to play with her indicates the esteem in which she is held by her fellow musicians. Ignore ths sour-grapes merchants - this is not technique for technique's sake and neither is Hiromi's clearly evident on-stage emotional involvement in her music synthetic. Utterly sublime - just wish she would hurry up and come back to the UK - preferably bringing Akiko Yano with her.
