MUSICIAN Born:

Edward Simon

The process by which Simon became an internationally regarded jazz musician began in the small coastal town of Cardón, Venezuela, where he grew up surrounded by the sounds of Latin and Caribbean music. Born in 1969, Simon credits his father, Hadsy, for developing his passion for music and supporting him and his two brothers, Marlon and Michael, to become professional musicians.

He attended the Philadelphia Performing Arts School, graduating at 15, then received a music scholarship from the University of the Arts where he studied classical music with concert pianist Susan Starr. Later he transferred to the Manhattan School of Music where he studied jazz piano with Harold Danko.

Edward Simon: Sorrows & Triumphs

Read "Sorrows & Triumphs" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

La figura di Edward Simon ha punti di contatto con quella di Guillermo Klein. Entrambi sudamericani sono pianisti, compositori e bandleader residenti da decenni negli Stati Uniti (Simon s'è trasferito dal Venezuela a 12 anni per studiare alla Performing Arts School di Filadelfia) e realizzano personali sintesi tra jazz contemporaneo, folklore dell'America Latina e raffinate soluzioni ...

Il meglio del 2018 secondo Angelo Leonardi

Read "Il meglio del 2018 secondo Angelo Leonardi" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Ogni linguaggio che partecipa alla multiforme scena del jazz contemporaneo ha espresso dischi eccellenti, equiparabili per valore artistico . Dal mio punto di vista, accanto alle opere di veterani sempre creativi come Henry Threadgill, Kenny Barron, Bill Frisell e Franco D'Andrea, ho ammirato i lavori di quaranta/cinquantenni come Jamie Saft, JD Allen, Michael Leonhart, Edward Simon ...

Jerome Wilson's Best Releases Of 2018

Read "Jerome Wilson's Best Releases Of 2018" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

It may be unwieldy to keep a large jazz ensemble together for economic reasons but this year was still full of outstanding big band recordings, whether done through commissions, arrangers working with established orchestras or even actual working ensembles.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
