A virtuosic reworking of the standard

Pianist Hiromi has dazzling technique (on the Art Tatum level), a creative spirit, boundless enthusiasm, and the ability to create remarkable music even at the fastest possible tempos.
While she is heard at her best as a solo pianist, she is also quite creative when leading a trio/quartet and doubling on electric keyboards.
For this version of “Caravan,” Hiromi is joined by guitarist Dave Fuczsynsky, bassist Tony Grey, and drummer Martin Valihora.
The familiar song is soon discarded in favor of a vamp that builds and builds during Hiromi’s colorful solo.
