上原ひろみ – Hiromi: The Trio Project reimagines Beethoven’s Sonata No. 8

I discovered Hiromi in a roundabout way. While browsing the work of the excellent photographer Rinko Kaweuchi I noticed she had done the headshot of a woman with a great smile and a distinctive hairstyle. When I looked up her name I discovered one of the most exciting jazz pianists working today.

I’ve since become a big fan of hers and this unexpected reworking of Beethoven stands out to me as one of the best pieces of cross-genre musical adaptation I’ve heard in ages.
