I know it's been discussed before but, to my knowledge (and through the searches I've made), no conclusions have been drawn.

I can't see why she isn't included in the jazz fusion section of PA yet. She fits perfectly. She's Chick Corea's protégé right now. She's like a younger female reincarnation of him. She's a virtuoso pianist who happens to be really melodious too. Her later albums with her band Hiromi's Sonicbloom are even closer to what the jazz fusion giants from PA sound like. Try them out.

Here is her myspace page. It has samples. They're great one too.

We need more girl proggers on Progarchives. LOL

I'd appreciate people in charge to pay attention to this thread. For some reason, Hiromi has been suggested quite some times and the case was never closed.

Sorry this was missed - I'll alert the JR/F team to it right away.

I agree. She'd be a good addition, though leans much more towards the jazz than the rock. Nonetheless, a great musician and perhaps fusion pianist.

Have you heard her last two albums with her new band called Hiromi's Sonicbloom. These albums are definitely fusion and worth it. Her earlier stuff is much jazzier indeed though.

hey guys -- what ever happened to Hiromi? she was approved almost 2 months ago, but an artist page hasn't shown up yet! she's an incredible jazz fusion artist whose work is undeniably prog in my eyes, and each of her records is great!

Don't know what happened here - anyone interested in providing a bio?  She could be added very quickly that way.


Posted By: auralsun
Date Posted: March 24 2009 at 13:28
sure -- do i just provide a description of the artist or do i need to provide a discography/anything else?


Posted By: Padraic
Date Posted: March 24 2009 at 13:30
Just a bio - the discography can be added by any member after the artist has been added.  You're welcome to take that on as well if you'd like.

Note:  please make sure the bio is not plagiarized from some other source, thanks.

we somehow managed to upload two instances of the "time control" album. i think both are essentially correct except fuze doesn't play exclusively fretless guitar on that record.

Missing the last track and the total time on one of them too. I reported the errors on the errors and omission board, should be fixed soon.Wink

note from the past is a bonus track only available on the japanese edition. wasn't sure the policy for including or excluding those types of tracks.

Date Posted: March 24 2009 at 17:26
Oh, shiz you're right.. ::corrects that in his post in the omission board::  My bad. LOL

I've asked the admin team to delete one of the duplicate entries.  I can then fix whatever problems remain with the single entry to ensure it's correct.

Update:  duplicate album gone, please advise what corrections need to be made to existing Time Control album.


Posted By: Evolutionary Sleeper
Date Posted: March 25 2009 at 13:17
On the Time Control album Note From the Past is actually a bonus track on the Japanese version.

This would make the Total time 61:42 without it, and 73:50 with the bonus track.

OK fixed that, on the previous page there was something about Fuze playing more than fretless guitar...let me know what to add for him.

Also, I used the ol time calculator and got the running times for the other albums.

Another Mind - 70:21

Brain -
61:07 (with bonus track Another Mind 74:17)

Spiral -
65:52  (with the bonus track Big Chill 73:22)
