5 stars Amazing from beginning to end, this solo concert by Hiromi is one of the best show I've seen on DVD. First I have to state that I've been playing music, piano, guitar and bass, since the age of 8 and as a musician, Hiromi represent all that I like about music and how music should be played. I have seen her 5 times and I have seen her during this solo tour.

The fact that it's only her playing this time, means that we can finally see her in action, without having tha camera on a another musician like the bassist or drummer. Her solo album is very good but, in concert, it's way better, in fact it's so good that I can't play the album anymore, I only listen to this DVD, so it plays a lot ;)

The show start strong, with BQE, the cressendo at the beginning is incredible! After that it never stop, emotion after emotion, all the note she plays are filled with feeling and power, a feast for the ear and the heart, my favorite food! Everithig in here is good but the last three song, Pachelbel's Canon, Viva! Vegas part 1, 2, 3 and Place To Be, contain the most amazing Jazz piano playing I have ever heard and seen in my life, apart from when I saw her in concert. I can understand that it might not be a live DVD for everybody but, if you like Jazz piano or Hiromi, look no further.
