CANCELLED – Edward Simon: Solo Piano
Edward Simon, hailing from Venezuela, has made a name for himself over decades in America as a jazz improviser, composer/arranger and bandleader, with his profile heightening in recent years as he has explored the commonalities jazz can have with the folkloric sounds of Latin America. JazzTimes summed up his impact this way: “Simon is less talked about than many other important jazz pianists from the Caribbean and South America, but he may be the most complete creative artist among them.” The New York Times has praised Simon’s “light, warm touch” as a pianist, while Jazz Journal International singled out “his deep emotional statements” as a composer and improviser.
