Hiromi – ALIVEJuly 15, 2014 / No Comments / Tags: ALIVE, Anthony Jackson, Hiromi, Simon Phillips, thejazzpage.com
Pianist-extraordinaire Hiromi is back with a remarkable work of breadth and depth. Alive has the dynamic pianist working with her trio of recent years, comprised of bassist Anthony Jackson and drummer Simon Phillips. The recording is defined by the amazing diversity, and yet cohesion, in the personalities of the mostly one-word titled, original tunes by the project’s leader. Hiromi’s dexterity and hypnotic pianissimo only enhances her compositions and the interplay with Jackson and Phillips is equally off the charts. Hiromi just gets more amazing with each incarnation.
