Hiromi: "Place To Be"
*HIROMI CHRONICLES HER WORLD TRAVELS ON HER FIRST SOLO PIANO RECORDING*
Place To Be set for release on January 26, 2010
If all the world is indeed a stage, pianist-composer Hiromi Uehara has played on just about every corner of it. Since the beginning of the decade, she has supported her impressive body of studio work with an ambitious tour schedule that has electrified audiences throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia and elsewhere with performances that have pushed the limits of piano jazz to new frontiers of compositional and technical skills.
Each stop on her journey be it the world-class metropolis, the quiet college town or something in between has introduced her to a new and singular vibe that has left an indelible impression on her creative sensibilities. Indeed, she has come away from every new place with just as much as she has brought to it, and perhaps even more.
