+ In a world perforated by bullets of war and muddied by cultural misunderstandings, Heroe Sekine endeavors to bring people together with new music that celebrates a variety of countries, pulled lovingly under the umbrella of jazz. She has composed every track on this compact disc with the obvious intention of showing us how much alike we are and unified, instead of divided. Music can do that. --- Musicalmemoirs’s Blog

+ I’m telling you here and now that I chime in with Sekine herself, who, proud of her creation, is quite sure no one has quite done it before. -- Vampirus Veritus by Mark Tucker.

+ Pianist Hiroe Sekine does a successful job in taking various sounds from all over the world and bringing them into the jazz family. The core team of Peter Erskine/dr and Michael Valerio/b team up with a Pier One Imports collection of guests, with Eric Rigler supplying Uilleann Pipes and Charlie Bisharet bringing his violin for a Gaellic jig with jazz on “La Greine Sunny Day, while a festive Iberian dance is supplied by Kazuhiko/ss and Antonio de Jerez/palms on a festive “Brillo de Sol.” Western harmonics and Southern Asia sitar and percussion create a sonic curry on “Soory Kaa Prakaasha,” and a mystical caravan pulsates in the Sahara with Bisharet’s violin and Dimitris Mahils’ oud on the drifting “Alshams.” Trips to Japan, Peru, Indonesia and the Pacific Rim are also included, making this a rich collection of exotic sounds that invite you across the world and into a jazz venue. –- Jazz Weekly

On her ambitious, stylistically expansive third album ONE WORLD ONE SUN, Los Angeles based, pianist/composer Hiroe Sekine creates an explosive global fusion of sounds, artfully blending her trademark soulful, flowing piano vibe with exotic textures from a multitude of world cultures – including her native Japan as well as Spain, Morocco, Indonesia, India and Peru. Working again with producer Russell Ferrante, Hiroe realizes her vision of unity leading an ensemble of top L.A. musicians. ONE WORLD ONE SUN is one deeply moving adventure!
