Last night I saw composer and jazz pianist Hiromi Uehara at Yoshi‘s in Oakland. And it blew my mind. Her Jazz Piano Trio’s music is fantastic, full of energy and contagious glee. They played mostly pieces from her newly released album Spiral, which I heartly recommend if you like Jazz or piano music in general. I was blown away by Hiromi’s speed and tecnique, her fingers are constantly a blur on those piano keys, but even more so by her emotion and pure joy. The expressions on her face were mesmerizing and a whole show in itself. There isn’t much more one can expect from music than to make you feel emotions … this concert absolutely did that and sent shivers down my spine countless times while doing it. Amazing. On her site you can listen to a few pieces and even see videos of a concert.
