    Link: `Return of the Kung-Fu World Champion` - It`s not a movie. It`s music.

    Not really my kinda jazz, and I don`t get the kung fu reference at all, but bonus points for her getting well into it and more bonus points for her mad hair.

    Hiromi Uehara is a Japanese keyboard virtuoso. Aside from performing at major jazz festivals throughout the world with her own group, she`s worked with contemporary jazz/fusion greats like Anthony Jackson, Stanley Clarke and Chick Corea. In fact, she was only 17 years old the first time she played onstage with Corea.

    I love these musical moments where (I`m pretty sure) the musicians are TECHNICALLY probably quite skilled... but the music still sounds like poo; well played poo but poo none the less.
    She`s cute. :)

    It`s just conjecture on my part, but the title may refer to the funky synth tones she`s using. They sound like they could have come from a 70`s-80`s Hong Kong movie soundtrack.

    I don`t know if that would be a space chase scene or robot porn music.

    Well that was crap.
    But to give credit, the video work was much better than we usually see at IAB.
