Edward Simon Trio

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm and 9:30pm nightly

For one night only, Jazz Standard is proud to present Edward Simon and his trio in a showcase performance heralding the release of his outstanding new Sunnyside album Latin American Songbook. It’s the fourteenth album as a leader for the Venezuelan native who over decades has made his name as a jazz pianist, bandleader and composer/arranger, along with being a Guggenheim Fellow and member of the hit SFJAZZ Collective. The trio’s subtly virtuosic performances brim with lyricism, color and groove, giving instrumental voice to songs originally made famous by such singers as Caetano Veloso, Mercedes Sosa, and Carlos Gardel. The New York Times has praised Simon’s “light, warm touch” as a pianist, while the Jazz Journal International singled out “his deep emotional statements.” JazzTimes said: “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.” Make your reservations now!
