“With Spark, the trio again exemplifies why DownBeat magazine has called them "one of the most exciting groups working in any genre today," with the leader's effusive, heartfelt virtuosity supported by Jackson's vigorously fluid basslines and Phillips' ability to be simultaneously propulsive and witty behind the kit.” Enjoy the Music.com

“Spark showcases Hiromi's Trio Project with sweeping narrative and emotive content. The pianist finds her own spark in the interaction with her triomates of the last five years, beloved contrabass guitarist Anthony Jackson (Paul Simon, Steely Dan, Chick Corea, The O'Jays) and legendary drummer Simon Phillips (The Who, David Gilmour, Judas Priest, Toto, Jack Bruce).” StudioExpresso“Spark draws its energy from the interaction of Hiromi’s precision, clarity and speed with Phillips’ detail-oriented drumming and Jackson’s unique melodic facility for an exciting, well-put together statement.” New York City Jazz Record

“With Spark, Hiromi has not veered from her path of musical exploration, and the tunes have welcome twists that surprise even fans familiar with her previous works.” Music Whatever
