Found the following quote while flipping through my note book…

You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.” – James Anthony Froude

Forging my fingers for the keyboard, forging my voice for the melodies and forging those words onto that sheet of gold and let them sparkle under the sun.

Hiromi is a jazz pianist who is innovative and is always on fire! Listening/watching her play makes one realize what real passion is. The emotions just pour out from her fingers and the piano strings and flood the whole atmosphere.

I love her composition “Tom & Jerry” show. I can just see Tom & Jerry in action – chasing, evading, hiding, resting, anticipating… then running again. =)

When someone as great a jazz piano player as Oscar Peterson gives a lesson in such a humble and friendly way, you just can’t not respect him more.
