The programme is made up of compositions by some of Haram's personal friends and associates, and others from recent discoveries, these include Graham Fitkin, John Adams and Tõnu Kõrvits. The music is varied in mood and tempo and occupies that almost indefinable space between classical and jazz. Several of the composition were written specifically for Haram and there is a sense of story and place throughout the album with each composition juxtaposed to its neighbour like chapters in a book.
Simon is much sought after as a recitalist and ensemble player, appearing with the Graham Fitkin Band, Nash Ensemble, Composers' Ensemble and all the London Orchestras. He was appointed Principal Saxophone of the London Sinfonietta in 1997. He is also a member of Will Gregory's Moog Ensemble as EWI and keyboard player.
As a soloist, Simon has appeared with the London Sinfonietta, Philharmonia Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, London Chamber Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra Of St John's, Soloists of the Royal Opera House, East Of England Orchestra, Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra and Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.
