Japanese jazz-fusion sensation Hiromi Uehara will play a single set in Tel Aviv in November with her band Sonicbloom. This will be the third trip to Israel for the 30-year-old Hiromi, who rose to fame in 2003 when she released her debut album Another Mind. Hiromi is known as a virtuoso and blends many musical genres into a unique mix, including prog-rock and classical. Her live performances are considered extremely high-energy, which is something that can't be said of many of her lower-key compatriots in the jazz universe. Recently, Hiromi collaborated with Chick Corea to produce Duet, which was recorded at the Tokyo Blue Note. She first met Corea when she was 17 and performed with him on the following day. Hiromi first came to Israel to perform at the 2005 Red Sea Jazz Festival and returned a year later due to popular demand. She does not like to classify her music in any way, preferring to stake out intuitive approaches instead. "I don't want to put a name on my music," Hiromi says. "Other people can put a name on what I do. It's just the union of what I've been listening to and what I've been learning. It has some elements of classical music, it has some rock, it has some jazz, but I don't want to give it a name." Catch Hiromi at Hangar 11, Saturday November 14 at 9:15 p.m..
