    Marvelous. I have heard several pieces from when Fuze used to play in her quartet(Thanks Matte). She is mos def a chops heavy barnburner.

    I first became aware of her when I joined TGP in early '07. She blew me away and continues to.
    She is amazing regardless the style she's playing

    I'd probably have liked it better if I hadn't just finished the Bley blindfold test linked in the RIP thread.

    Hiromi is amazing. One of the threads here last year turned me on to her music. It was incredible. And I usually hate any type of jazz.

    That has got to be one of the most ridiculous looking studio sets I've ever seen. Really distracting- I was expecting Mr Rogers to appear or maybe care bears or something.

    Awesome performance, of course.

    I saw her once with Stanley Clarke. This guy must have been right in front of me. Not the best audio....

    Wow. I've never seen a Japanese woman making John Mayer faces before; this is going to be an awesome day.

    Your looking at it wrong if you see John Mayer.

    Killing what? Am I the only one that is just not into it? Seems like an ego-fest... less is more!! I lasted about 20 seconds.

    Really? I thought the first 20 seconds were some of the finest gospel playing I've ever heard. To my ears it was the exact opposite of an ego-fest ... more like a musical prayer. In fact, I thought the entire performance was incredibly spiritual. But then I guess we all hear what we hear.

    I'm not very distant from this. In the sense that I don't dislike her playing but until now I haven't heard a lot of depth in what she plays.

    Main criticisms of prodigies are usually that they show no emotion and play robotic like.

    Well according to that stank face, this ain't no prodigy. First I heard of her, great musician, thanks for the intro.
