Hiromi - The Trio Project - Move

Those of you who know me, will know of my love for progressive rock music in it's various forms, but what some of you may be less familiar with is my growing love of jazz.

I was given the heads up on Hiromi by friend Chris McGarel (@Whiterhinotea) and I am very pleased he did!

This Japanese pianist started playing classical piano aged 5 years old but a meeting with Chick Corea when she was 17 years old changed her life and musical trajectory.

Here she is performing with Anthony Jackson (the O'Jays, Paul Simon, and Pat Metheny) and Simon Phillips (Judas Priest, The Who and Toto) and this live track exudes sheer joy and the way the 3 of them fire off each other just blows my brain.

I hope you enjoy!
