Spectrum / Hiromi

Album cover art for upc 888072118225
Catalog: TEL00081
Format: CD


Highly successful and prolific Japanese pianist and composer Hiromi has recorded albums as diverse as duets with Chick Corea to her bombastic trio featuring Simon Phillips and Anthony Jackson. Her new record, Spectrum is different. Not only is it a concept record reflecting on the interplay of light, color, and music but it is also solo piano. Hiromi was inspired to mark the decades with solo piano recordings. Her first, ""Place To Be"" was released in 2009. NPR All Things Considered host Guy Raz said this of her in-studio performance: ""Incredible. There aren't enough words in the English language to really do justice to describe what I just saw"". In ten years, Hiromi has grown as a musician and a composer. ""Spectrum"" shows a more mature approach to songwriting and the keyboard. There is still a show of Hiromi's shear virtuosity, however the album is beautifully written and performed with a more pensive outlook than has been seen from Hiromi before.1. Kaleidoscope2.
