O’s Notes: Composer and pianist Edward Simon celebrate a lengthy career of fine music with this compilation of 25 Years. It starts with music from his self-titled 1995-debut and moves through 2018’s Sorrows and Triumphs. There are associations with countless talented musicians during this span including Mark Turner (t-sax), David Binney (a-sax), Larry Grenadier (b), Scott Colley (b), Brian Blade (d), Avishi Cohen (b), John Patitucci (b), Luis Quintero (perc) and Sean Jones (t). Favorites are “Impossible Question”, “Navigator” and the more mellow tracks of Disc 2 like ”Barinas”.
