Hiromi Uehara

Another upcoming jazz legend...this gal...

She was discovered by Chick Corea (Jazz Giant) at age 7, studied music at Berklee University and now perform jazz/funk/electronica...Didn't realised how great she was when she came to the Esplanade during the Mosaic festival. Still remembered i even asked her to play Giant Steps...then she answered "How come everybody likes Giant Steps so much??? " Then she ended the music workshop night with her rendition of Giant Steps.

Jazz giants i feel affinity to are Keith Jarrett, Stan Getz, Chick Corea, Bill Evans...and now i found this gal Hiromi Uehara...amazing she is!!!

Besides Spain in my previous blog http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZaOd-fvWU0 starting from 3:06 Harmony is AMazing!!! So inspired to play Spain now...

Just watched a few clips of her jazz improvisation, and im like AWED by her....
