LHI Live: Jazz pianist Edward Simon with Keith Hall

Mar 14, 2014

Venezuelan jazz pianist Edward Simon, who got his start with bandleaders Paquito D'Rivera, Herbie Mann and others, recently signed on with the all-star lineup of the SFJAZZ Collective. A bandleader and composer himself, he also just released a newly-commissioned work, Venezuelan Suite, which is inspired by the dance music of his home culture.
