Hiromi's Sonicbloom

Hiromi's Sonicbloom: Time Control

Hiromi's back, y'all. The new album Time Control dropped March 27. Haven't heard it yet, but the video above would indicate more of the energetic angularity that was so pleasant on last year's Spiral. (The video would also indicate that beneath all that jazzfire she's also an endearingly dorky young woman-person).

Instead of the trio, the ensemble this time is Hiromi's Sonicbloom. Not to be confused with the appetizer at Outback Steakhouse. Ms Uehara's site has this to say:

Recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville in October 2006, Hiromi’s Sonicbloom includes British bassist Tony Grey and Slovakian drummer Martin Valihora, and features a more explosive sound, thanks to special guest David “Fuze” Fiuczynski, the iconoclastic jazz-rock guitarist from Screaming Headless Torsos, KIF, Lunar Crash and Black Cherry Acid.

All rightee, then. I'm intrgued.
