PRLog - May 23, 2012 - BOSTON -- Boston, MA--World renowned jazz pianist Hey Rim Jeon has just released Introducing Hey Rim Jeon, her first set for N-Coded Music and distributed by RED, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.  In conjunction with the release, Hey Rim will present "An Evening of Original and Classic Jazz" with Hey Rim on piano, Tim Mayer on saxes, Greg Holt on bass and J. Curtis Warner, Jr. on drums at Scullers Jazz Club on Tuesday, June 19 at 8 PM.  

Introducing Hey Rim Jeon shows the very wide, multinational and eclectic range of Jeon’s influences.  Having been a classical prodigy as a child and then becoming a jazz devotee in her later years, Jeon's new CD juts from fully-driven mainstream jazz improvisation to showcases of her elegant classical musicianship to a stunningly re-harmonized jazz version of Debussy's Claire de Lune featuring saxphonist Dave Liebman.  There are also six original tracks, jazz great Chick Corea's Spain, an instrumental version of the Sigmund Romberg standard “Softly as in a Morning’s Sunrise” and a delicate interpretation of a traditional folk song called Arirang from her native Korea. 

Jeon’s work shows the influence of Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, David Sanborn, Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane, but Introducing Hey Rim Jeon also shows her own contemporary improvisational style.  The CD features performances by Grammy Award-winning drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, saxophonist Dave Liebman, bassist James Genus and percussionist Richie Barshay.

Hey Rim is an active performer both nationally and internationally.  Notable shows have included an appearance at Lincoln Center in New York, at The Jazz Informance in Chesapeake, Virginia, at the Beantown Jazz Festival in Boston and at The International Association for Jazz Education Conference in Toronto, Canada.  She has also performed at some of of the top jazz clubs and festivals in Korea, Japan and Turkey including the main stage of Korea's inaugural Jarasum International Jazz Festival where she was billed alongside such luminaries as Dennis Chambers, Chris Minh Doky and Hiram Bullock.  She also performs regularly with her band and as a soloist in the New England and New York areas and is already booked for the Saturday, September 29 program of this year's Beantown Jazz Festival.

In 2003 her CD, Hey Rim Jeon & Friends reached CDBaby’s 40 top-selling jazz albums list while her third release, Mona Lisa Puzzle reached CDBaby's top 10 Modern Creative Jazz Album list.
