Move is Hiromi's second "Trio Project" recording with electric bassist Anthony Jackson and drummer Simon Phillips, and is a worthy follow-up to 2011's Voice. The pianist/composer defines the compositions on Move as mirroring an average day, starting with the title track, a choppy excursion that finds the trio connecting through a maze of twists and turns. Brand New Day" is smoother than the previous track but doesn't lose any of the energy.
com/Move (Hiromi album).
Hiromi's previous album, "Voice" is the definitive Album where Hiromi nails her artistic voice and fully expresses it. I discovered Hiromi at a Simon Phillips drum clinic, which was downright amazing. He's easily one of the 20 best drummers in the world. Move opens on a similar plane as Voice, but adds new layers of tension and tapestry. As a percussionist, I admire Phillips' adroit performance. The first track showcases each of the three musicians soloing while never leaving the essence of the song behind.
Hiromi: Hiromi: Move by Jeff Winbush, published on March 29, 2013. Hiromi marks her first decade of music-making on her terrific ninth album, Move featuring her Trio Project with bassist Anthony Jackson and drummer Simon Phillips. Reunited with Jackson and Phillips for a second outing after 2011's superb Voice, (Telarc, 2011) the two veteran musicians provide the Japanese pianist with a rhythm section that can not only keep up with her but push her in a way she wasn't by her Sonicbloom band.
Move is a fusion music album recording by HIROMI released in 2012 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette. Filed under Fusion By HIROMI.
