Described as “the best of us all” by Cuban piano giant Chucho Valdés, SFJAZZ Collective pianist Edward Simon performs solo in a program of standards and improvisations for the first Alone Together live streaming concert of the New Year. A native of Punta Cardón, Venezuela, Simon has worked extensively with Bobby Watson and Terence Blanchard along with Greg Osby, Bobby Hutcherson, Paquito D’Rivera and Herbie Mann while leading a succession of superlative ensembles and releasing over a dozen albums. His newest trio session for Sunnyside, 2017’s Latin American Songbook, won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Jazz Album. He became a member of the SFJAZZ Collective in 2010, and was awarded a Guggenheim fellowship the same year.
