The Jazz Session #142: Hiromi

Posted under Pianists & Podcast

Pianist Hiromi Uehara spends a lot of time on the road, traveling from gig to gig, from hotel to hotel, from city to city and country to country. Her new CD, Place To Be (Telarc, 2010), pays tribute to many of the places she’s visited. In this interview, Hiromi talks about life on the road; her emotional return to her hometown in Japan; and why she’s happy to meet new pianos. Learn more at www.hiromimusic.com.

    New to me, although I’ve seen the name and she appears to be always smiling. Which is a pleasant change.

    This goes to the top of my list of “check this out” items

    Another wonderful interview – I love the Hiromi / Corea ‘Duet’ and taht was my only exposure to her. Didn’t realize how young she was, as she balances nicely with Corea. Have to check this out!
