Venezuela-born pianist Edward Simon has played with numerous artists, including Greg Osby and Terence Blanchard, and he’s released several albums as a leader since his debut in the early '90s. Live in New York at Jazz Standard is his third album with a trio that includes bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade. “Poesia,” a Simon original with a nice melody, opens this fine set. Simon turns out a charged-but-considered performance that evokes Bill Evans, while both Patitucci and Blade play fine solos. Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “Chovendo Na Roseira” starts with a gorgeous statement by Patitucci, who goes on to drive the band on this odd-meter excursion. Simon’s “Pathless Path” immediately establishes a mysterious vibe with bowed bass, cymbal tappings, and impressionistic piano runs. The band settles into a groove colored by melancholy, and, deeper into the track, high-energy drama. Simon’s staccato-laden solo introduction to John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” is striking, and the band’s take on the piece is surprisingly jaunty; it’s unlike any other version of this classic. The album closes with another Simon original, the Latin-flavored “Pere.”
