Hiromi / Sonicbloom - Time Control

SKU 28-TLR83655.2
"Hiromi Uehara is the petite Japanese pianist that has been shaking up the jazz world for a number of years. With each passing album she has added more electric instrumentation and the music has taken on some fusion overtones. Time Control is a new project that moves her even further into fusion realms. While she mainly concentrates on acoustic piano she does play some synths. Her rhythm section is electric bassist Tony Grey with Martin Valihora on drums. The real star is noted electric guitarist David "Fuze" Fiuczynski. Fuze is probably most known for his use of fretless guitar (which appears here extensively) as well as fretted guitar. Hiromi gives him plenty of space to work his magic. There is lots of energy on this disc and the interplay between Hiromi and Fuze is dizzying - as they trade solos back and forth as well as play in unison. The juxtaposition between Fuze's distorted guitar versus Hiromi's fluid and clean acoustic piano is startling but it works...particularly when you hear them blazing away. Hopefully this is not a one off project and we'll hear more from this lineup. Highly recommended."-Ken Golden.

Really, this is probably one of the best straight-forward 'fusion' albums that will be released this year. Terrific sound too.
