HC's Rock Rewind A look back at the past two weeks in Rock History by Tea...
Alfred Music Publishing is excited to release Hiromi: Place to Be, the officially
licensed piano solo songbook to the album by contemporary jazz/fusion musician
Lauded as " ... one of jazz piano's brazenly virtuosic players" by JazzTimes,
pianist/composer Hiromi Uehara took an interest in classical piano at a very young
age, elevating to a performance with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra at age 14. Her
musical horizon soon grew to include jazz music, and by age 17, an encounter with
Chick Corea in Tokyo led to a guest concert appearance with the famed jazz recording
artist the very next day. Her new songbook Place to Be joins Alfred’s extensive jazz
piano solos catalog.
Hiromi: Place to Be features accurately transcribed piano solos from the album, with
easy piano versions for the titles "Place to Be," "Somewhere," and "Sicilian Blue,"
as well as bonus songs “Green Tea Farm” and “The Tom and Jerry Show.” The book also
includes the artist’s personal reflection notes on each song.
As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving our environment, this book is
printed on 100\% recycled paper stock.
Hiromi: Place to Be (00-36748) is now available for $19.99 at local music retail
stores or at alfred.com.
