WelcomeWelcome to the official site of multi-award-winning Venezuelan pianist and composer Edward Simon. 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 is an important presence on the jazz and world music scene."
