Virtuoso pianist Hiromi Uehara is, as All Music Guide writes, “one of the most remarkable pianists of the past half century.” Having been mentored by legends Chick Corea and Ahmad Jamal, Hiromi signed her first record deal before graduating from Berklee College of Music and has since released a dozen albums with various acclaimed projects. Explosive and energetic and her playing, Hiromi takes solo piano performances to new heights. The Guardian describes her performances as “breathtaking displays of flat-out swing, funky grooving and classical references, often all in the same piece.”
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
