Words cannot express the feverishly intense and magical way Hiromi possess the piano! Do not miss the chance to see her perform live.

Hiromi Uehara first mesmerized the jazz community with her 2003 Telarc debut, Another Mind. The buzz started by her first album spread all the way back to her native Japan, where Another Mind shipped gold (100,000 units) and received the Recording Industry Association of Japan’s (RIAJ) Jazz Album of the Year Award. The keyboardist/composer’s second release, Brain, won the Horizon Award at the 2004 Surround Music Awards, Swing Journal‘s New Star Award, Jazz Life’s Gold Album, HMV Japan’s Best Japanese Jazz Album, and the Japan Music Pen Club’s Japanese Artist Award (the JMPC is a classical/jazz journalists’ club). Brain was also named Album of the Year in Swing Journal‘s 2005 Readers’ Poll. In 2006, Hiromi won Best Jazz Act at the Boston Music Awards and the Guinness Jazz Festival’s Rising Star Award. She also claimed Jazzman of the Year, Pianist of the Year and Album of the Year in Swing Journal Japan’s Readers’ Poll for her 2006 release, Spiral. Hiromi continues her winning streak with the 2007 release of Time Control.
