    She still astonishes me. Possibly one of the most talented musicians in the world.

    Her latest album, "Time Control," is some of the better fusion material I've heard in recent years. Hiromi is willing to go far beyond a lot of the modern jazz cliches, which I admire. And Dave Fiuczynski plays some wacked-out shit on that album.

    Funny, I just walked back from the music store with one of her albums. I think you posted this thread the exact moment I picked it up :lol:

    I'm going to my record store and buying Time Control. I just saw the video for Time Out, and it was jaw dropping. (The guitarist plays a fretless 12 + fretted 7 doubleneck).

    Truly amazing pianist and composer. I just got Time Control... it blew me away :bowdown:

    You must be crazy if you think you're gonna get her over me... even though she is almost twice my age... :rolleyes:

    Easily my favorite jazz/fusion artist. I have all of her albums, and I've turned all of my friends onto her.
