About the Actor

Japan's Hiromi Kanda doesn't just sing the standards, she embodies them. On her new album, Hiromi in Love, and the sensational videos that accompany the recordings, the Japanese vocalist transforms each classic into a work of art. With an elegant visual style that matches the grandeur of the songs timeless Great American Songbook gems such as "That Old Feeling" "My Funny Valentine" and "Someone to Watch Over Me" Hiromi places this music back into the context in which it was created while breathing new life into it. And it's all a labor of love.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Songs, Top-Notch Production Values July 4, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
"Hiromi In Love" is a collection of 11 elaborate music videos of songs from the Great American Songbook performed by Hiromi Kanda. Born in Nagasaki, Japan, Ms. Kanda was exposed to American music via the armed forces personnel stationed in the city. At 19, she appeared on an "American Idol"-type Japanese TV talent show, beating out an initial two million applicants, and signed a recording contract.

The videos on this Blu-ray Disc are beautifully photographed, combining performance footage with story segments and smooth visual segues from one video to the next. Ms. Kanda is elegantly costumed in gowns, often sporting a series of gardenias in her hair, perhaps a tribute to Billie Holiday.

The selections include songs associated with pop vocalists ("Unforgettable" - Nat King Cole, "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" - Frank Sinatra, "Cry" - Johnnie Ray), big band classics ("I'll Never Smile Again"), and a Gershwin hit ("Someone to Watch Over Me"). Ms. Kanda, accompanied by the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra, interprets these standards with style, giving each song its own unique interpretation. There are two bonus music-only tracks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wanted to "rave" this disc-not happenin' January 29, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Well, After reading a stellar review at a popular audio magazine's website I thought this would be amazing, but, honestly despite the excellent quality of the video and audio on the blue ray disc...and the talent of the singer (she's a great singer-seriously). This disc comes off as a caricature of a Japanese singer trying to do the great American Songbook, complete with mispronounced words (not a letter 'L' in her repitoire). I'm sure she can knock just about anything 'outta the park' in her native language...but not in English.
