Just came across a pretty badass new musical find the other day, my old man cued me into this one:
Hiromi Uehara - young Japanese woman who plays jazz piano like there's no tomorrow... think Chick Corea meets Dream Theater. I listened to the first track off of her "Another Mind" CD, and it blew my fucking mind. It's just a jazz piano trio, and she's capable of making Opeth sound light.
If you're into jazz piano or progrock in any way, shape, or form, check out some of this chick's stuff:http://www.hiromimusic.com/recordings-AnotherMind.htm
