Hiromi Uehara - "the virtuosic piano sensation from Japan" - really fascinates me, but I was slightly disappointed by the "too background-ish, "subdued" bass role in her latest album, "Move", recorded with two veteran players bass guitarist Anthony Jackson (Paul Simon, The OJays, Steely Dan, Chick Corea) and drummer Simon Phillips (Toto, The Who, Judas Priest, David Gilmour, Jack Bruce). (By the way, I was surprised that such an astounding six-string electric bass player and legendary instrumentalist/jazz musician Anthony Jackson is playing so much with the pick.) Here is Hiromis opening composition, "Move" "Arguably, Hiromis not even the star of the nine-cut collection, the second offering of her trio project written with drummer Simon Phillips and bassist Anthony Jackson in mind. With Jackson lurking in the background, Move is stolen entirely by Phillips, who channels Buddy Rich, the pit bull of jazz drummers. Hiromi The Trio Project / Desire - Live Hiromi The Trio Project featuring Anthony Jackson & Simon Phillips Am I wrong about the bass playing in "Move"? I'd like to see more rhythmically challenged basslines on Hiromi's albums.
