Additional Information

Upon arriving on the New York jazz scene in 1989, Edward Simon’s reputation as a pensive, rhythmi­cally astute, versatile player caught the ear of such noted musicians as Greg Osby, Jerry Gonzalez, Bobby Hutcherson, Herbie Mann, and Paquito D’Rivera – all of who would later employ the pianist for tours and recordings. In 1989, Simon took the piano chair in saxophonist Bobby Watson’s influential group Horizon; in 1994, he moved to the Terence Blanchard Group and released Beauty Within, his first re­cording as a leader. Simon also took third place in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Compe­tition, the first in a string of high–profile awards including a Fulbright scholarship and a Guggenheim fellowship. This special engagement celebrates the release of a very special recording: The Edward Simon Trio, Live At Jazz Standard, on Sunnyside Records. “Aesthetically, I'm concerned with simplicity and economy,” says the artist. “I strive to get to the essence of the message I wish to communicate by making every note count, just as every word counts in a good story. I think of music as living being, something that's under constant transformation.”
