No pianist alive imbues the solo piano format with more explosive virtuosity or thrilling unpredictability than Hiromi Uehara – a GRAMMY-winning artist the All Music Guide calls “one of the most remarkable pianists of the past half century.” A prodigious talent who debuted with the Czech Philharmonic at 14, the Hamamatsu, Japan native was mentored by Chick Corea and Ahmad Jamal early in her development, signing her first record deal with Telarc before graduating from Boston’s Berklee College of Music.

Blending a foundation in classical repertoire with a deep feeling for the jazz tradition, she’s collaborated with Corea and Stanley Clarke, led a dozen albums in settings including her original trio, the Sonicbloom quartet featuring guitarist David Fiuczynski, her Trio Project with bassist Anthony Jackson and drummer Simon Phillips, and most recently in duo with Columbian harp virtuoso Edmar Castañeda. But it is the solo recital that allows Hiromi to follow her creative muse unadorned and explore without restriction — a format memorialized on her superlative 2010 Telarc solo CD, Place to Be, which JazzTimes called a “sheer delight” and “the most refreshing solo piano record to come along in some time.”
