Still-young piano sensation Hiromi Uehara frequently draws comparisons to an anime schoolgirl superheroine, but her ever-growing body of impressive work has linked her of late to larger heroes, such as LeBron James. Her muscular technique and king-size pianistic vocabulary, coupled with a torrent of energetic charisma, make her a true jazz virtuoso and a crowd-pleasing all-star. You certainly feel as if you've been dunked on after one of her show-stopping pieces; afterward, you can only get up off the court and applaud her dominance. Hiromi's teammates on her Trio Project are fusion veterans, bassist Anthony Jackson and drummer Simon Phillips, both of whom have played with enough heavies to handle the fast break by this Japanese mamba.
