Mentored by the legendary Ahmad Jamal, the Japanese pianist/composer has created music that grows with every performance, moves easily beyond stylistic genres, exhibits an awareness of the entire jazz tradition and adapts to the contributions of her fellow bandmates.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> “Alive,” her June 17 release on Telarc/Concord, heralds the return of Hiromi’s Trio Project, featuring contrabass guitarist Anthony Jackson (Steely Dan, Paul Simon, Michel Camilo, The O’Jays and Chick Corea) and drummer Simon Phillips (Toto, The Who, Judas Priest, David Gilmour and Jack Bruce).<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> “Alive has a double meaning for me,” Hiromi says. “I wanted to write songs that deal with things and emotions that we encounter in life. But the word Alive can also mean ‘played live.’ I’ve been performing with Simon and Anthony for four years. We’ve made three records together, and we’ve done so many live shows as a trio. We have a great time being adventurous, and I felt that we can make the record sound like a live recording in front of the audience.”<br /> <br /> Amazon: <a href="http://smarturl.it/HiromiCD">http://smarturl.it/HiromiCD</a> Facebook: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/HiromiFan">https://www.facebook.com/HiromiFan</a> Hiromi - Move (2012) tag:esbjazzradio.ning.com,2012-10-13:4069663:Video:25545 2012-10-13T14:34:40.313Z ESB http://esbjazzradio.ning.com/profile/esb <a href="http://esbjazzradio.ning.com/video/hiromi-move-2012"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/1945633648?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Features contra-bass guitarist Anthony Jackson and drummer Simon Phillips<br></br> <br></br> On her 2011 album, Voice, Hiromi sought to capture people's "inner voices" and strove to create what she called a "three-dimensional sound."

For that album, the Japanese composer/pianist assembled a trio that included herself and two veteran players -- contra-bass guitarist Anthony Jackson (Paul Simon, The O'Jays, Steely Dan, Chick Corea) and drummer Simon Phillips (Toto, The Who, Judas Priest, David Gilmour, Jack Bruce). While Hiromi had played with Jackson prior to recording Voice, she had never recorded an entire album with either him or Phillips.<br /> <br /> "I had such a great time recording with them, and we went on the road together and that was even more fun," she says. "As soon as we started playing live shows, we grew up as a band. It was the biggest fun I've ever had in my life musically. That's why I wanted to do another record. I couldn't let it go. I wanted to do it again."<br /> <br /> While on the road, Hiromi started writing music for a follow-up, Move, set for U.S. release March 5, 2013 on Telarc, a division of Concord Music Group. (European release date is October 2, 2012.) "Because I had been playing with Anthony and Simon for quite a bit, I just started to understand their characteristics, and I could find a hidden gem in their playing," she explains. "As a composer, I really wanted to write the songs especially for them, and I wanted to extract the unique beauty of their playing."

"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. Maybe it's something you haven't said yet. Maybe you're never going to say it. But 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."<br /> <br /> Download a free Hiromi track: <a href="http://www.telarc.com/FreeDownloads/">http://www.telarc.com/FreeDownloads/</a>
