HIROMI: THE TRIO PROJECT
featuring Anthony Jackson and Simon Phillips
The Japanese jazzpianist and composer Hiromi is best known for her virtuosic and energetic live performances. Her music is described as progressive jazz-fusion. She was voted rising star in the category of keyboard in DownBeats critics poll 2012. It will be a first showing in Finland of Hiromi’s supertrio, which is completed by two veterans of the trade: bassist Anthony Jackson and drummer Simon Phillips. Jackson has played with Chick Corea, Steely Dan and The O’jays during his long career, while Phillips has worked with Toto, The Who and David Gilmour.
