Hiromi's Sonicbloom: Time Out

Recommended Posts

I love this music and the musicians.

The way they play with little motifs, choruses and improvisation is really inspiring!
The girl has so much energy, amazing!

Thanks for sharing! This made my day.

I love how they enjoy themselves! Hiromi's playing sometimes frightens me (in a good way.) I love how crazy she went after 6:00.

It's great - she's a top-notch player, Fuze is amazing as always.

It's interesting because it's fusion-y, but also loose and weird. Which is good - hard to pull off that kind of energy with something that leans a bit smooth 😉

I assume you dig a lot of the Pat Metheny group stuff?

After listening to all of Time Control, there's a clear difference from the Metheny Group stuff I can't quite place.

The Sonicbloom stuff seems fair bit looser and more adventurous, in a way. Metheny is more controlled.

Do you have a preference to one style (control) over another (loose)? In what way? 
Sorry if I'm pressing, I just feel like there's a lot to learn from you and you're a bit of a rarer participant nowadays.

I personally might tend towards the looser, more reactive approach; however, depending on the mood, I definitely do love something that's very carefully planned and weaves the looseness together in a more controlled manner.  The early 2000s Metheny Group stuff I particularly liked. As well as a lot of contemporary large ensemble writing... but I definitely lean more towards the Mingus, Monk, Ornette school of thinking. 

Another great example of being loose and comfortable within a pretty controlled environment would be the Avishai Cohen trio stuff. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVijn6v_cLM - very complex metrically, harmonically - but it still feels very organic and natural)

@robinjessome, thoughts? Just curious. I've never known if my tastes are good or bad when it comes to this stuff.

 

Why are you worried about whether your tastes are good or bad. Your tastes are your tastes. I happen to think they are awesome musicians. I really love the style and the harmonics they have going on. It is groovy and I could listen for a long time before getting tired if ever. That's my opinion.
