Gwilym Simcock is one of the most gifted pianists and imaginative composers on the British scene. A musician of dazzling ability, he is able to move effortlessly between jazz and classical music, and has been described as reminiscent of Keith Jarrett, complete with “harmonic sophistication and subtle dovetailing of musical traditions.” A recipient of the award for “Jazz Musician of the Year” at the Parliamentary Jazz Awards in England, his music has been widely acclaimed as engaging, exciting, often unexpected, and wonderfully optimistic.
