Venezuelan pianist and composer Edward Simon is considered one of the strongest pianists on the jazz scene, part of a new generation of “multilingual” musicians who have grown up studying classical, jazz and Latin-American music and who has garnered a unique voice both as composer and instrumentalist. Edward is inventing a language that transcends any rigid genre.
Simon was named Guggenheim Fellow and became a member of the SFJAZZ Collective, a prominent musician/composer jazz ensemble dedicated to creating new work and highlighting the music of historically significant jazz composers of the modern era. The Collective is comprised of “eight of the most in-demand” (New York Times) artists performing today.
