Place To Be – 2011



A haunting and touching ballad from the virtuoso pianist

Hiromi has become well-known for her superb virtuosity (which is on the level of Art Tatum) and her rambunctious and often-explosive piano solos which are filled with joy and a bit of craziness.

However Hiromi can also have her technique serve the music rather than the other way around.

“Place To Be” is one of her most touching ballads which she plays beautifully during this memorable performance from 2011.
