    **3 x double pass for AJSV members**

    The Melbourne International Jazz Festival has kindly offered three free double-passes to see Hiromi: The Trio Project at Arts Centre Melbourne, Hamer Hall on Thursday 9 June at 7.30pm to the AJSV members. To enter, email Events with 'HIROMI' in the subject line before 12pm, Thursday 19 May 2016.

    Hiromi: The Trio Project

    featuring Anthony Jackson and Simon Phillips (Japan / USA)

    “One of jazz piano’s most brazenly virtuosic players” — JazzTimes

    Following three sell-out performances during her Australian debut at the 2012 Festival, the dazzlingly talented Hiromi makes her long-awaited return to Melbourne.

    Dominating the next wave of jazz superstars, her credits include a gig with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra at age 14, a personal invitation to play with Chick Corea at 17 and a mentorship with Ahmad Jamal at the Berklee College of Music – all before launching her professional career.

    A completely original improviser and composer who turns each piece into a thrilling journey, Hiromi takes the notion of jazz into entirely new territory – a roller-coaster ride of musical pyrotechnics that veers between breathtaking displays of flat-out swing and the power of high-energy rock.

    Her electrifying stage presence is matched by her equally formidable Trio, bassist Anthony Jackson (Paul Simon, Steely Dan, Chick Corea) and drummer Simon Phillips (Toto, The Who, Judas Priest) – proclaimed by Downbeat Magazine as “one of the most exciting groups working in any genre today".
