Hiromi - amazing pianist from Japan

Last night I had the great opportunity to see Hiromi Uehara, an incredible Jazz Pianist from Japan. Her style is unique in that she alters the sound of the piano strings to make them sound like she's playing a stand up bass or one of those clangly western-sounding pianos (yeah i have no idea about terminology). But either way, she is SUPER fast and she is incredibly passionate. You can see the passion flow through her face and body when she plays. You can hear her sincerity when she talks to the audience between songs and thanks everyone for a night of sharing emotions. Her talent is unquestionable. Just watch the video above.
