Description

Orchestral jazz from pianist Edward Simon who teams up with award-winning classical group Imani Winds and his group Afinidad, which he co-leads with saxophonist David Binney, plus Gretchen Parlato on vocals.

The three tracks on 'Sorrows and Triumphs' drawn from the original title suite - "Equanimity," "Rebirth" and "Triumphs" - feature Afinidad with Gretchen Parlato, plus Adam Rogers and Rogerio Baccato, the compositions inspired by Simon's studies of Buddhism over two decades.

The album's tracks taken from the suite "House of Numbers" - "Uninvited Thoughts," "Triangle," "Chant" and "Venezuela Unida" - feature Afinidad with Quintero and award-winning classical group Imani Winds. The ballad highlight "Chant" also includes words and vocals by Parlato. Simon's compositions explore the cross-cultural resonance of numerology, as well as the musical possibilities that arise when jazz and classical artists combine.

Personnel: Edward Simon (piano), David Binney (alto saxophone), Scott Colley (bass), Brian Blade (drums), Gretchen Parlato (voice), Adam Rogers (guitar), Rogerio Boccato , Luis Quintero (percussion), Imani Winds
