a technical master at her craft, jin bora’s fingers fly across the piano keys with ease and frightening precision. having finished music school in boston, she’s getting a lot of attention with big opportunities coming her way. her compositions are absolutely beautiful, i can see her blowing the lid off the jazz community. for a 22 year old, her skill is way beyond her years.
while no one can argue her ability, you can hear that the way she plays sounds a little academic and safe. even if the notes and composition relay emotion, i think they way she plays should convey that as well. she knows the rules, now it’s time for her to break them as she sees fit. if she can get past that hurdle and flourish, she’ll be one for the books. it’ll be interesting to follow her career from here.
