Had never heard of this woman before today. Random YouTube click and was completely floored by the talent she exhibits. Attached is her Jazz set from Marciac.

Makes me want to practice a bit more. =)

Hiromi is amazing! I've got a lesson on my site about how she improvises over Pachelbel's Canon from her "Place to Be" album. Her technique is astounding.

I thought your wrote "random YouTube chick" and I was getting ready to get all upset! laugh Because she's far from a "random YouTube chick" -- but for a random click, that's hitting the jack pot.

I have two of her CDs and when I lived in Japan I used to see her on TV a lot, she's great to listen to but also fun to watch. Here's one of my favorites:

Most definitely was a random click....not chick! smile

I have watched her 2010 Marciac performance twice now and cannot believe how effortlessly she plays. Her output is so dynamic! I for one do not mind the emotion that she shows by occasionally vocalizing and smiling. In fact, I actually think it adds something to it. She is incredibly charismatic and dare I say, sensual with her playing. It comes across that way to me, not as a detraction but rather like she just has no choice but to react that way. The audience was certainly on her side through the entire performance. I will be watching the video you shared next.
