The Jazz Session #142: Hiromi

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

  1. 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


  2. 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!
