About Live in New York at Jazz Standard
Studio recordings are wonderful documents of musicians and ensembles at certain milestones, yet they can be a bit unfair to both listeners and musicians who are interested in the natural development of the music. Pianist/composer Edward Simon has recognized this disparity and has decided to release the first live recording in his discography, Live In New York at Jazz Standard. The recording was done with his outstanding trio featuring two astounding sidemen, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade...
He may not release his own albums as often as some might like, but when a record like Live in New York at Jazz Standard comes along — a stellar date that combines head and heart, mainstream and more eclectic concerns, and appealing, broad-reaching originals with distinctive arrangements of well-known standards, all played by a trio clearly at the top of its game — then all is forgiven and, while waiting for Simon's next release, there's a growing discography with one more fine entry to return to, time and again." - John Kelman, All About Jazz
