Edward Simon Trio
The pianist was recruited by the SFJazz Collective last winter and spent a chunk of the year working with their imaginative Horace Silver designs. At a recent local gig, he demonstrated new physicality in his introspective approach to the keyboard. With nimble bassist John Patitucci and cinematic drummer Brian Blade stirring the pot, that aggression should be enhanced at this trio gig. Everything they do--even a warhorse such as "Giant Steps"--is vivid. Ask him about his new Guggenheim Fellowship.
