Trio Live in New York at Jazz Standard

Edward Simon

Studio recordings are wonderful documents of musicians and ensembles at certain milestones, yet they can be a bit unfair to both listeners and musicians who are interested in the natural development of the music. Pianist/composer Edward Simon has recognized this disparity and has decided to release the first live recording in his discography, Live In New York at Jazz Standard. The recording was done with his outstanding trio featuring two astounding sidemen, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade.

Unicity

Edward Simon attains the apotheosis of his march to concision, working hand-in-glove with this sublime bass-drum tandem. Each is simultaneously a sound painter and a groove master. Extraordinary chemistry. (Ted Panken)

Voted by DOWNBEAT as "Best CD of 2007"

Bassist Avishai Cohen and drummer Adam Cruz, both equally versed in the art of telling stories in swing and clave, join Simon on a program of six originals and a standard You're My Everything.

Guitarist Adam Rogers, and vocalist Luciana Souza augment the trio on the tune Unknown Path.

Edward Simon album by Edward Simon was released in 1995 on the Kokopelli label. All songs written by Edward Simon except "Alma Llanera (Part 1)," "Alma Llanera (Part 2)" (Pedro Elias Gutierrez) and "Caballo Viejo" (Simon Diaz). Edward Simon plays mostly restrained and introspective piano on this release that recalls Keith Jarrett while also hinting now and then at Simon's Venezuelan heritage. Edward Simon music CDs Although tenor-saxophonist Mark Turner and percussionist Milton Cardona help out here and there, this is essentially a low-key trio date with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Adam Cruz in the post bop tradition of Bill Evans. Most of the tunes were contributed by Simon and only "Slippin' & Slidin"' and the tenor solo in "Teen's Romance" generate much heat although the close interplay between the alert musicians and the consistent inner tension does hold on to one's interest throughout. Edward Simon: piano; Adam Cruz: drums, Larry Grenadier: bass, Mark Turner: tenor saxophone. Guest artists: Milton Cardona: percussion, Cafe Da Silva: percussion.
