1 Hiromi: The Trio Project DVD Simon Phillips on Mon Dec 17, 2012 9:06 pm

This is pretty nice stuff, maybe not everyone's cup of tea, it gets a bit out there...
but cool drum and bass stuff from Simon Phillips and Anthony Jackson.

You talk about a force in music. She is a bloomin' piano freight train.

Same stuff from Simon. I would have thought the intensity of that piece would have brought more out of him. That riff had volcanic energy just bursting forth. They obviously enjoyed themselves.

Always great things from Jackson. Gorgeous bass.

Yeah, man, Hiromi is explosive.

Yeah, she is just another force in nature. I wonder if she has played with Akiro? There are lots of monster players in Japan. This guy is really good, though.

Knowing this is a drummer's forum I take the liberty to post this knowing many people see the piano as a percussion instrument.

This girl is Bach, Kieth Emerson, and Oscar Peterson all rolled into one.

Yep, and that's exactly what I mean about Simon.
Exactly what you'd expect. Nothing less and nothing
more. Hiromi just isn't human and Anthony Jackson,
well all you need do is say his name and that's the
concert right there. Gibralter solid in WHATEVER he
plays. He'll hold up an entire band all by himself!

Amazing!

Simon seems happy to maintain total control. He never seems to play with any wild abandon like so many other drummers would have in the same context of that energy production. You know he can do it, but he just never pulls the trigger and lets go. He plays safe, I guess. He's an enigma, that's for sure.

She is a good piano player, but the music is a bit annoying.
No melody lines or hooks, it mostly licks over substance.
I would rather listen to classical piano music, that is some beautiful stuff.

A lot of piano players in this genre take that path, you can't even hum a melody in any of her music.
If you ever heard David Benoit, he mixes chops with melodies and does it with taste.

Any body catch that time signature and how it's broken up in the solo section?

I thought Simon did well. Very controlled, so yeah it felt a little stiff at times. He didn't want to take any chances of throwing off the feel of the time signature , but he tore it up pretty well. That hi hat thing he had going is pretty amazing. there was some overlaying of rhythm which was cool. I love Hiromi she's awesome. I really like that kind of stuff reminded me alot of bassist Avishai Cohen's music. Without someone like Anthony Jackson it would never have flown! Now that's a musician!! He's got the hard job. I have alot of admiration for Simon after that too. That's a tough composition!! Awesome truly. Hiromi just went off! what amazing stamina. I'm in love!! I love you

Hiromi is just another side of the coin. She's intense and that's just her.
Truthfully, I don't think I'd want to hear that kind of approach during an
entire show. But it's fun listening when it's not overdone.

Agreed!

He's got the hard job.

I think it would likely be hard for someone other
than him. Anthony eats this kind of stuff for lunch
and makes it look and sound like a walk in the park.

They're playing the Blue Note early next year . But unfortunatley I don't think I will be making it.

Surprising, Ted... I didn't think you'd miss such a show!

I got her Sonic Bloom band dvd earlier this year. All monster players. Incredible time changes, for sure, but nice melodic, slower compositions, as well.

I admit by the end of the dvd I am ready for something a lot more toned down, but the energy levels her bands put out is massive.

Her discography shows quite a wide array of stylings and approach.
