Fred Simon

Contemporary composer Fred Simon is a well-kept American music secret. He’s equally inspired by European impressionism, jazz and the Beatles. USA Today describes Fred Simon as “Modern music’s middle ground between classical and jazz” and he is a pianist and composer who combines pop sensibility and jazz complexity in a way that is unmatched. Fred Simon’s musical legacy spans more than thirty years. He has recorded on Windham Hill (not surprisingly Usually/Always (1988), Columbia), and the highly acclaimed Open Book (1991), before moving to Naim Label. Fred Simon’s thirty-year career includes collaborations with musicians such as Pat Metheny Group (Oregon), Fairport Convention, Larry Coryell, Kurt Elling, Fairport Convention, Fairport Convention, Larry Coryell, and Mahavishnu Orchestra. Simon’s ability to combine melody and chord is a testament to the Naim Label luminaries who are waiting to record with him. bio from
