Fantastic fusion frolics Hiromi – Sonicwonderland

Fantastic fusion frolics Hiromi – SONICWONDERLAND:  What a joy to listen to… an absolutely stunning jazz quartet from pianist Hiromi, filled to the brim with fantastic fusion frolics… don’t just take my word for it, though… watch the band in action on Reminiscence first; such a beautiful vocal on this one…

You’ll find over 30 videos to enjoy when you SUBSCRIBE to Hiromi’s YouTube channel… DO it, folks.

In addition to Hiromi’s visionary piano compositions, you’ll also enjoy bassist Hadrien Feraud, drummer Gene Coye, and trumpet player Adam O’Farrill… tunes like the 8:17 title track, “Sonicwonderland“… what’s the “keyword” for it?  Oh, it’s “amazing”… fusion, straight ahead jazz and total funk all rolled into one tune that you’ll find yourself enjoying over and over (and OVER) again.  What a FUN romp!

In her own words, Hiromi said the album is “a new journey of adventure”; she couldn’t have pegged it any better… I absolutely LOVE this 9-song wonder, and give it a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, as well as a (perfect) “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 5.00… which means it also gets a “PICK” from me for “best jazz fusion album”.  You can get all the goods on Hiromi’s Bandcamp page for the release, below.
