Latin American Songbook is the follow-up to Simon s 2014 Sunnyside release, Venezuelan Suite, which saw the pianist blend the tuneful, buoyant sounds of his native country with the harmonically sophisticated, forward-looking manner of jazz. These rich compositions - written on a grant from Chamber Music America - featured star saxophonist Mark Turner alongside virtuosos of the Venezuelan folk tradition. For the new album, Simon created artful piano-trio settings of such songs as Astor Piazzolla s famously rhapsodic Libertango and Antonio Carlos Jobim s lilting Chega de Saudade, as well as the gorgeous Cuban ballad En La Orilla Del Mundo (At the Edge of the World), a number jazz fans may know from its appearance on the hit Charlie Haden & Gonzalo Rubalcaba album Nocturne. About these songs and five others on Latin American Songbook, Simon explains: I grew up listening to and loving this music it sings and it dances. It s irresistible. Later, I dealt with this material playing in Paquito D Rivera s band in the 90s, and in my collaborations with Luciana Souza. As a mature jazz artist now, I wanted to delve into these songs more deeply and make them my own. I tried to start from the original source. For something as well-known as Libertango, I began by transcribing Piazzolla s first recording. Then I strove to subtly transform the originals, taking Carlos Gardel s Volver from a tango to a 5/4 jazz tune, for instance.
