Jazz in the Neighborhood hosts the Edward Simon Trio. Pianist Edward Simon – a native of Venezuela who has made a name for himself over decades in America as a jazz pianist, bandleader and composer-arranger, along with being a Guggenheim Fellow and member of the hit SFJAZZ Collective – has created fresh, supple interpretations of melodies from all over Latin America. His latest album Latin American Songbook won him an NAACP Image Awards for ‘Outstanding Jazz Album’. For this performance, Simon’s trio features two of the most distinguished players from the Bay Area: drummer Alan Hall and bassist Peter Barshay, whose subtly virtuosic performances brim with lyricism, color and groove.
