Acoustic Jazz

Born in 1963, Hiroshi began studying piano at five. He later began learning jazz at the age of sixteen and just three short years later, at the tender age of nineteen, made his professional debut. Afterwards, he cut his chops playing in New York and in Spain. With one leg planted firmly in the Jazz world and the other in Flamenco, his unique talent and performances both original and creative continue to dazzle fans domestically and abroad. His playing style is infused with a wide range of musical elements and can be said to be an art form all it's own. It's classical finesse, elegant sense of harmony, jazz improvisation technique, and it's sensuous, raw Flamenco rhythmic inflections all seamlessly combine to create a magnificent sound that captures the audience's heart and doesn't let go. In 2006, He released the album"La Sonrisa"on the Pony Canyon label and in 2010, played to high praise in Russia, as a Japan/Russia Cultural Exchange Goodwill Ambassador. In 2016, He released the album"Trio Transition" On the Pony Canyon label. At present, in addition to performing, he is in great demand as an arranger and producer.
