Editorial Reviews

One of the most exciting pianists to emerge in the last decade, Hiromi has already amassed a stunning discography of mostly original works, and seems to possess a bottomless well of musical ideas, absorbing a wide range of influences from Bach and classical to jazz fusion and rock.
For her 2011 release, Voice, and its follow up, Move, the Japanese composer/pianist assembled a trio that included herself and two ace veterans contrabass guitarist Anthony Jackson (Paul Simon, The O Jays, Steely Dan, Chick Corea) and drummer Simon Phillips (Toto, The Who, Judas Priest, David Gilmour, Jack Bruce). Now comes a DVD release, Live at Marciac, which showcases not only Hiromi s astounding technique and commanding leadership, but also her trio s high level of innovation, improvisation and originality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irresistable October 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
I saw this band recently at a local jazz fest and when I saw this DVD was coming out I ordered it immedialtely.For anyone who only has her CDs- seeing her live is a whole other experience.Our seats were pretty far away when I saw her so its a treat to be able to see everything up close on this DVD.The lighting is somewhat subdued on this stage but everything is clear and the angles are interesting and they didn't jump around too much for the editing.And the sound is superb.

This girl has everything-amazing technique-yes-but so much more- energy,commitment and musicality,charisma-and her obvious love for the music all come through loud and clear on here.So many highlights but her interpretation of the Beethoven Sonata is just exquisite.Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Jazz Fusion December 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
Hiromi is a musical force that must be heard (and seen) to be believed. Her technical ability, combined with unparalleled improvising skills, are incomparable. This DVD captures her at her best. Her band mates, drum legend Simon Philips and bass god Anthony Jackson, rise to her challenge and make this recording a must-have item for any serious jazz-rock fusion lover. Certainly, it isn't your run-of-the-mill jazz band. There is not much that is 'traditional' about it, but, on the other hand, they never venture into 'smooth jazz' territory either (thank God!!!). This DVD captures a marvelous performance, sometimes manic in tempo and full of ferocious improvisation, at others, highly lyric and sweet; it is one of Hiromi's finest recordings yet. So, if you're in the mood for some unbelievable pianism, brilliant invention, and truly inspired music-making, this is the show for you!

As an aside, this is Hiromi's latest concert DVD - her fourth. I would highly recommend all of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great release. October 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
Great DVD. Picture is right up there with Blu-Ray, really sharp with nice rich colors. No games, nice camera work. Nice shots of each musician. No choice for sound just automatically starts in LPCM stereo. Sound is superb, even with Blu-Ray I don't listen to the new codecs, LPCM is lossless also. For me surround is for movies. The sound is right up there with the best I've ever heard, if not the best I've heard on DVD or Blu-Ray. As for the music, just look at the group! Musical, technical & complex, doesn't get any better. I've seen her twice, once with this group & once with Steve Smith on drums. Great to see each musician from the perfect angle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kudos Hiromi February 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
I dug Hiromi's music when she debuted her first CD. To have Telarc be in love with you and sign you to your debut CD is also no small feat. It seems that she is evolving with each successive CD release, and as the music evolves it maintains that signature Hiromi sound. We're are witness to a very special and talented individual that will continue to impress year after year. Thanks for the great music Hiromi, everytime we listen it make us enjoy life a little better.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY EXHILARATING!!!! October 21, 2013
Even more astounding than 'Hiromi, Live In Concert' and Hiromi's Sonicbloom Live In Concert', in my opinion, 'Live In Marciac' builds up song by song with seemingly endless power and momentum! Hiromi is not only in splendid form, but here she clearly demonstrates that she must have spent some years secretly living in Chicago, Louisiana, and other places in America living, studying, feeling and experiencing jazz and blues!

I'm kidding of course, but when you hear her beautiful, touching, soft and moving jazzy interpretation of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 8, Pathetique, as well as some of the gorgeous blues that follows in one of the last songs, you may be surprised at how much she obviously loves and feels the stuff!

I know there are different styles of piano music, of course, and different types of players, but watching this I can't help but think that she is the finest pianist (overall) on the planet! Certainly many will probably acknowledge that Hiromi is one of the finest, (if not THE finest), 'technician' on the instrument, so to speak, but upon hearing this DVD, and how she plays blues and jazz with so much pure emotion, feel and soul, certainly makes me think that there may be no finer, although there are some great 'classical' pianists out there that may be better in that particular genre. I haven't mentioned 'fusion' or 'rock', but there's obviously no need to! And, getting back to 'classical', should Hiromi ever feel like releasing a few classical albums someday, I'm sure she'll keep up with the best there too! Finally, her 'touch' and phrasing, dynamics and so forth- I won't even get into how incredible that is! Surely someone has already talked about that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow January 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a fabulous concert. I disagree with the comments saying that some of the musicianship seems tired. Simon Phillips and Anthony Jackson are on spring chickens, that's for sure, but there is no lack of energy. Musicians don't need to be jumping all over the place to be good. I thought the level of musicianship was excellent all around, and Hiromi as usual is fantastic on the keyboard.

The sonics are excellent. The DVD has both stereo PCM and Dolby 5.1 tracks. I preferred the latter because it gave me more of a sense of the auditorium but both sound great. The music is focused in the front - no weird stuff like instruments coming out of the surround or rear speakers.

The video is excellent as well. I thought it was tastefully done, each shot spending enough time on the performer to allow us to focus on what they are doing rather than skipping back and forth among the three or trying to give us fancy viewing angles.

I'm very happy I purchased this DVD. Everything about it is first rate.
