Σαν σήμερα, 26 Μαρτίου 1979 γεννήθηκε η πιανίστα και συνθέτης Hiromi Uehara, από τις πιο ξεχωριστές μουσικούς της σύγχρονης jazz. Στα 14 της έπαιζε με τη Φιλαρμονική Ορχήστρα της Τσεχίας. Στα 17 της ο Chick Corea θα την ανακαλύψει / προσκαλέσει να παίξει μαζί του. Στη συνέχεια θα αφοσιωθεί στην jazz, σπουδάζοντας στο Berklee με δάσκαλο τον Ahmad Jamal.
Ακούμε ένα κομμάτι από το άλμπουμ της Spiral, 2005. Στη συνέχεια μια επίσης δική της σύνθεση, από το διπλό άλμπουμ Duet που κυκλοφόρησαν το 2008 με τον Chick Corea.
On this date, March 26, 1979 the pianist and composer Hiromi Uehara, one of the most extraordinary musicians in contemporary jazz was born. At 14 she played with the Czech Philarmonic Orchestra. At 17, she was discovered by Chick Corea who invited her to play with him. She then studied at the Berklee with Ahmad Jamal.
We first hear a track from her Spiral album, 2005. Then, another composition of her own, from the double album Duet released in 2008 with Chick Corea.

Happy Birthday, Hiromi!

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
