The moment Japanese pianist Hiromi released her debut album Another Mind in 2003, the jazz world held its breath a moment. Never before had anyone succeeded in transforming jazz, classical and pop music in such a singular way and with such an authentic result. Over the following years, she developed at the speed of light. Hiromi, who is clearly inspired by legends like Erroll Garner and Oscar Peterson, honed her skills at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and together with bassist and arranger Richard Evans, she has turned her playing into a visionary sound. She made an astoundingly beautiful live album with Edmar Castañeda and recorded a trio album with bassist Anthony Jackson and drummer Simon Phillips. On her most recent album Silver Lining Suite, that she recorded with her Hiromi The Piano Quintet, she worked together with a string quartet. It is a worthy successor to the widely acclaimed solo album Spectrum that she released in 2019.
