Hiromi on Piano Jazz

Hiromi
Sakiko Nomura
/

Pianist HiromiUehara was born in Shizuoka, Japan in 1979 and took her first piano lesson at age six. By age seventeen, she'd performed with both the Czech Philharmonic and with Chick Corea. She is an in-demand performer, capable of playing stride piano with blinding speed and deadly accuracy, and she's also a thoughtful, impressionistic composer. On this episode of Piano Jazz from 2004, McPartland and Hiromi perform “Lullaby of Birdland” and McPartland improvises a “Portrait of Hiromi.”
