Jazz at the George

Hiromi

Happening in the George Weston Recital Hall

“I don't want to put a name on my music. Other people can put a name on what I do. It’s just the union of what I've been listening to and what I've been learning. It has some elements of classical music, it has some rock, it has some jazz, but I don't want to give it a name.” 
– Hiromi

 Since bursting onto the music scene in 2003, Hiromi has electrified audiences and critics east and west, with a creative energy that encompasses and eclipses the boundaries of jazz, classical, and pop parameters, taking improvisation and composition to new heights of complexity and sophistication.

 Spark, her fourth album with The Trio Project, featuring Anthony Jackson (Steely Dan, Paul Simon) and Simon Phillips (Toto, The Who), is the latest chapter in Hiromi’s ever-evolving musical life. It evokes the myriad moods and mysteries of life and reveals the soulful, syncopated simpatico of Hiromi’s thrilling trio.

 

 Hiromi, Japan’s virtuoso pianist, utterly original improviser and composer, originally scheduled for April 12, 2019 has been rescheduled to April 3, 2020 due to Hiromi's pregnancy. The US/EU Hiromi engagements scheduled up to August 2019 have been postponed under the advisement of her doctor.
