Pianist/composer Hiromi mesmerized the jazz community with her 2003 Telarc debut, Another Mind. The buzz started by her debut album spread all the way back to her native Japan, where Another Mind shipped gold (100,000 units) and won the Recording Industry Association of Japan's (RIAJ) Jazz Album of the Year Award. Hiromi's second release, Brain, followed a year later. Brain received Swing Journal's New Star Award, Jazz Life's Gold Album, HMV Japan's Best Japanese Jazz Album and the Japan Music Pen Club's Japanese Artist Award. When Swing Journal announced the results of its 2005 Readers Poll, Brain won Album of the Year. Hiromi takes it up another notch with her January 2006 release, Spiral.
