About

Edward Simon Trio Live in New York

It has been said that jazz is best experienced live. I couldn't agree more. It is for this reason that I'm so excited to announce my first live record.

Many fans have asked when I would put out a live record. Well, here it is...Following two previous studio recordings (Unicity and Poesia), "Live in New York" features the same all-star line-up with John Patitucci and  Brian Blade during a three night stint at one of New York's top jazz clubs, the Jazz Standard. Professionally recorded by Tom Lazarus, this recording captures pristinely the dynamic interplay that occurs when the three of us come together on stage. Only the live setting provides the vibrancy that inspires free, extended improvisations like those that took place. During those three nights you'll hear us stretch, reach and take chances as we play my original compositions including Abiding Unicity, Poesía, Pere, and Tom Jobim's Double Rainbow.

The funds raised will be utilized to cover the production costs such as recording, mixing, editing, mastering, travel costs, engineer and artist fees, artistic design and manufacturing. Mixing and mastering will be done by one of the best mastering engineers around, Bob Katz. Provided that we reach our funding goal - and I trust that you'll help us do so - the "Edward Simon Trio Live in New York" CD will be released by the fall of 2012.

However, we can't do this without you. Your support is an integral part of this project. Above and beyond the pleasure you'll derive from listening to this recording time and time again, there are many additional rewards to be had including: an autographed copy of the "Live in New York" CD, my two previous trio recordings (Poesía & Unicity) autographed, the original poster of the performance "Live at the Jazz Standard" autographed (only one available!), exclusive access to video of select tracks from our live performance and guest passes to our next show in NY.

If you have not yet made it to one of our live shows, this is the perfect opportunity to experience this stellar trio performing live in the Big Apple. Don't miss this unique opportunity. Thank you for your support. I hope to see you at our next show!

Yours truly,

Edward Simon

Se ha dicho que el jazz es mejor experimentarlo en vivo. No podría estar más de acuerdo. Es por esta razón que estoy muy emocionado de anunciar mi primera grabación en vivo.

Muchos fans me han pedido que saque un disco en vivo. Bueno, aquí está ... Después de dos anteriores grabaciones en estudio (Unicity y Poesía), "Live in New York" cuenta con el mismo trio estelar, con John Patitucci y Brian Blade durante una jornada de tres noches en uno de los principales clubes de jazz de Nueva York, el Jazz Standard. Grabado profesionalmente por Tom Lazarus, esta grabación capta de manera impecable la interacción que sucede cuando los tres nos juntamos en el escenario. Sólo el ambiente en directo proporciona la vitalidad que inspira improvisaciones libres y extendidas como las que tomaron lugar. Durante esas tres noches nos oirás tomar altos riesgos al tocar mis composiciones como Abiding Unicity, Poesía, Pere, y Double Rainbow de Tom Jobim.

Los fondos recaudados serán utilizados para cubrir los costes de producción como la grabación, mezcla, edición, masterización, gastos de traslado y hospedaje, honorarios de ingenieros y artistas, diseño y manufactura. La mezcla y masterización serán llevadas a cabo por uno de los mejores ingenieros de masterización, Bob Katz. Siempre y cuando lleguemos a alcanzar nuestra meta de financiación - y confío en que usted nos ayude a hacerlo - el disco "Edward Simon Trio Live in New York" será lanzado en el otoño del 2012.

Usted forma una parte integral de este proyecto, ya que sin su apoyo no lograré que el disco salga. Por encima y más allá del placer que derivarán al escuchar esta grabación una y otra vez, hay muchos beneficios adicionales que pueden recibir a cambio de su apoyo, incluyendo: una copia firmada del nuevo CD "Live in New York", las dos grabaciones anteriores de este trio (Poesía y Unicity) autografiadas, el póster original del concierto "Live at the Jazz Standard" autografiado (solo uno disponible!), acceso exclusivo a videos de nuestra actuación en directo y pases de invitado a nuestro próximo show en Nueva York.

Si aún no has podido asistir a uno de nuestros conciertos, esta es la oportunidad perfecta para experimentar este trío estelar actuando en vivo en la Gran Manzana. No te pierdas esta oportunidad única. Gracias por tu apoyo. Espero verte en nuestro próximo show!

Le agradezco por adelantado su apoyo.

Atentamente,

Edward Simon
