Product Description

Product Description

'Spiral' is the highly anticipated follow-up to 'Brain', the Japanese piano sensation's 2004 album, which received outstanding reviews from the jazz press and was supported by extensive touring which included sold-out dates at the Brecon Jazz Festival and Ronnie Scott's. It is another brilliant showcase for the pianist's imaginative compositions and thunderous playing that fuses elements of jazz, classical and avant-garde into an intense listening experience. 'Spiral' offers a glimpse into the highly creative inner world of a gifted young pianist/composer whose roots are in jazz but whose potential is unlimited. Mentored by giants like Oscar Peterson, Ahmad Jamal and Chick Corea, Hiromi turns tradition on its head and plunges into a universe of new ideas.

Recorded 2005

Personnel: Hiromi - (piano), Tony Grey - (bass), Martin Valihora - (drums)

Review

(4 stars) It serves to confirm her as one of the most exciting pianists of her generation. -- Jazzwise, (Peter Quinn), March 2006

Format: Audio CD
This is a first class recording by someone who is clearly developing into a top standard jazz artist. I saw them play live a month or so ago and was impressed by the incredible amount of energy she put into the performance and that comes accross in this recording as well. The whole CD has an energy to it that makes you want to keep listening again and again.

The band she has put together are excellent, the drummer especially is very skilled (not to say the bass player is not) and the whole thing feels very 'tight'.

So, if it's that good, why not five stars? Well, I can't help but feel that she will continue to improve and will deliver even better on her next album, so I need some room for that eventuality when it is released! Also, and this is a minor point, it starts to feel a bit 'samey' in places. A bit more variation would have helped, but don't let that put you off.

This is the first album of Hiromi I heard borrowed from a local library. I made a copy of it but I'm glad to have purchased a legit copy only fair. I've become a great fan and seen her live in london recently. Fantastic artist on album and live. Just can't get enough of this true genius.
