    amazing

    If your a fan of electronics of Herbie Hancock's Headhunters or a fan of the speed of Art Tatum and The genious thought of Chick Corea or Oscar Peterson then this is the album for you. Easily one of my favorite jazz albums ever.

    Beautiful music displaying all that's great about jazz piano

    As a piano teacher and player of both classical and jazz, this album is outstanding because Hiromi has dazzling virtuoso soloing skills, beautiful themes, and surprisingly, reflects the best influences from all African American jazz legends from bebop to present. She made me go back and listen to my favorite Bud Powell and Billy Taylor albums just to compare her solo runs with these legends. There is even a strong reminder of Joe Sample in her very pleasing "If". "Green Tea Farm" is a lovely theme that resembles an Irish folk tune with its melodic trills. "Wind Song" is particularly intriguing with its modal and tonal ambiguity (is it major or minor?). "Desert on the Moon" is my favorite, it blazes with amazing finesse from the starting gate while the rhythm section simmers its smooth jazz Latin groove. The funky synthesizer stuff, "Kung Fu World Fighter", "Brain", and "Keytalk" remind me of Herbie Hancock - fun, crazy, a great sense of humor. "Legend of the Purple Valley" is another beautiful theme that is once again reminiscent of Joe Sample because of her ability to weave very lyrical melodies with smooth harmonies and an exquisite touch. Every time I play this album for my adult piano students, male or female, young or older, they are amazed and want to go out and get a copy right away. I will be buying this album many times over as gifts for many people. This is the album you buy for people not very familiar with much jazz, because it sells them on it, completely!!
