Ever since the release of her 2003 debut album, Another Mind, Japanese pianist/composer Uehara Hiromi has electrified audiences worldwide. “One of the most exciting groups working in any genre today,” writes Downbeat. With electric bass master Anthony Jackson (Chick Corea, Steely Dan) and hard-hitting drummer Simon Phillips (Al DiMeola, David Gilmour), this fierce but playful trio blends percussive post-bop, proggy polyrhythms, mesmerizing counterpoint melodies, swing, and rock–all accompanied by Hiromi’s joyful offhand vocalizations and gleeful bouncing off the piano bench!
Complex and ambitious, pianist Alicia Hansen’s “ethereal voice and classically informed arrangements come together in experimental pop that’s both listenable and challenging” (Now Magazine). Ranging from driving, experimental instrumentals to intimate and lush songs, her sublime band features Ben Brown drums, Peggy Lee cello, David Sikula guitar, James Meger bass.
