In her early 30's, piano superstar Hiromi stands at the threshold of limitless possibility, constantly drawing inspiration from virtually everyone and everything around her. Hiromi’s powerful Trio Project returns to the SFJAZZ Center following their run of sold-out shows last season. An utterly original improviser and composer, the Japanese-born pianist creates kinetic soundscapes in which through-composed passages segue seamlessly into open-ended improvisation. What’s most impressive isn’t her commanding technique. It’s her cohesive group approach in which no instrument is confined to its traditional role. She introduced this hi-octane ensemble on 2011’s Voice [read JP review] and its 2013 follow-up, Move [read JP review], featuring electric bass master Anthony Jackson and British drummer Simon Phillips, whose gaudy resume includes stints with Brian Eno, Jeff Beck, Stanley Clarke, and The Who. Hiromi's Trio Project will appear at SFJazz center on Thursday, March 13th
