Recital with Pianist Ed Simon, Oakland, CA

Two Venezuelan virtuosos will perform a blend of South American music including favorites by the iconic Venezuelan singer/songwriter Simón Díaz as well as Simon’s own Venezuelan Suite from his acclaimed album of the same name. All About Jazz marveled: “Venezuelan Suite is pianist Edward Simon’s love letter to his homeland, but that’s not all it is; it’s also the perfect confluence of Venezuelan ideals, jazz language and chamber-esque sophistication. In short, it’s a masterpiece.”
