Japanese pianist Hiromi Uehara will arrive in Bucharest on June 30, after giving no fewer than four magical concerts at the Blue Note, a well-known New York jazz club in which consecrated jazz artists have been performing for well over 30 years.
“The Trio Project means Hiromi and a piano, bass singer Anthony Jackson and drummer Simon Phillips, but it also means lightning and sound tornados on the Radio Hall stage at the end of June. After the aforementioned band shook New York’s Blue Note Jazz Club to its core on June 4-7, we do not know what is in store for us on June 30 since Hiromi represents the avant-garde of contemporary jazz, with vibrant and unpredictable shows,” the organizers inform.
The Hiromi – Trio Project feat. Anthony Jackson & Simon Phillips concert will present the group’s latest album – “Alive” – and is part of the Jazz Night Out series of events.
This is not the first time when the pianist will “lose her mind” on the piano. She electrified the audience and imparted to it emotions and feelings of special amplitude, which surpass the dimensions of a regular classic jazz or rock concert, on two previous occasions.
“Each moment of improvisation will be like a fireball that they will pass on to each other. Simon Phillips will challenge her on the drums on his favourite ground: rock,” the organizers’ communiqué reads. The well-known musician sang alongside Toto, Judas Priest, Peter Gabriel, Whitesnake and Mick Jagger. American bass singer Anthony Jackson is the inventor of the six-string bass, redubbed a double bass guitar. He appears on numerous albums alongside artists such as Simon & Garfunkel, Michel Petrucciani, Dizzy Gillespie and Chick Corea.
