Description

Japanese Hiromi Uehara studied at Berklee School of Music in Boston, and whose talents as a gifted young pianist have been recognised by the likes of Oscar Peterson, Ahmad Jamal and Chick Corea. Ahmad Jamal, in fact, helped to produce this recording and said of Hiromi that, "Her music, causes her to soar to unimaginable musical heights. She is nothing short of amazing."

'Another Mind', offers a glimpse into the highly creative inner world of a gifted young pianist whose roots are in jazz but whose potential is unlimited. An ambitious and engaging debut, it makes frequent forays into R&B and avant-garde with interludes of high-speed and high-energy freeform.

Hiromi is supported by a fine team of musicians that includes her own backup unit of bassist Mitch Cohn and drummer Dave Di Censo, as well as three formidable guest players: bassist Anthony Jackson, alto saxophonist Jim Odgren and guitarist Dave Fiuczynski. It was produced by Ahmad Jamal and Richard Evans.

Jackson, a seasoned session player with a mile-long list of credits dating back to the early 1970s, heaps high praise on the young talent: "Hiromi stands in the front rank of the greatest players that I've ever worked with," he says, "and I've worked with quite a few of them."

Personnel: Hiromi (piano), Mitch Cohn (bass), Dave DiCenso (drums), Anthony Jackson (bass), Jim Odgren (alto saxophone)
