"JAZZ PHENOM HIROMI EARNS RAVE REVIEWS FOR SOLO PIANO DEBUT ’PLACE TO BE’(Telarc)"
"Extravagantly dynamic... A forceful presence on any stage..."
-The New York Times
"Whimsical and witty, moody and meandering."
"One of Japan's best jazz keyboardists-composers."
-New York Magazine
"One of jazz piano's most brazenly virtuosic players."
"...one of the most explosively creative solo piano albums Keyboard Central has ever heard."
"Although she rips through high-speed, bebop-tinged passages with ease, Hiromi’s jazz sensibility has less to do with swing and propulsive lift than it does with atmosphere and visually oriented impressionism."
— Los Angeles Times
"She has an instantly recognizable style, featuring a dense flurry of notes and chords that recalls Art Tatum - who, not surprisingly, is one of her idols."
— Billboard "Artists to Watch"
"I don't want to put a name on my music. Other people can put a name on what I do. It's just the union of what I've been listening to and what I've been learning. It has some elements of classical music, it has some rock, it has some jazz, but I don't want to give it a name."
— Hiromi Uehara
