    She’s a jazz acrobat. To make up a word… a jazz-ro-bat! The piano is her landscape of virtuoso expression. She electrifies and eclipses. Blurs boundaries and in her own way she has re-imagined improvisation. There is a new bar. A first music teacher speaks of Hiromi in a way that sounds like the very sensationally curious experiences of someone who has Chromesthesia – hearing sound as color.

    Vocal magic, dexterity and adventure. She has explored the sounds of American music foundations by going back in time. Expertly she interprets vintage country blues and folk in gently provocative fresh and creative ways. Roots music and Americana infused with jazz and blues spices her original compositions and then she just sings them for you and sings them so you don’t forget.

    He was the personification of an intense and impassioned respect and belief in jazz music. Like a warrior he defended the art form to anyone he felt got in its way. In the 60s and early 70s he challenged what he saw as a lack of understanding and respect for the history and validity of the music. Fearlessly and fiercely going as far as to be outspoken about what he observed.

    The Artistry of ... Paul Desmond

    An all-California Pacific kind of cool; easy and laid back; a language of the melodic and unique to one special artist.
