Hiromi: Tue, Feb 24, 2009 at 8pm

Hiromi at Stewart Theatre:

A huge crossover star in her native Japan, jazz fusion pianist Hiromi Uehara is nothing short of awe-inspiring. She performs with larger-than-life energy, and her amazingly nimble fingerwork is breathtaking. Hiromi began her training as a classical pianist at a very young age, and performed with the Czech Philharmonic at age 14. While a chance encounter with Chick Corea (at age 17) led her to move toward jazz, her inspirations range from Bach and Beethoven to Oscar Peterson and her mentor Ahmad Jamal to King Crimson and Frank Zappa.

See for details.
