  • Description

    Originally from Cretieil, France, jazz pianist and composer Simon Denizart's fifth album 'Piece of Mind' proves to be his most innovative yet with influences borrowed from jazz, classical and electronic music. Always sensitive to developing new sounds and sonorities with the piano, Simon offers solid melodic and rhythmic playing. On 'Piece of Mind' Simon is supported by his long-time collaborators; virtuoso Elli Miller Maboungou on percussion and Michel Medrano Brindis on drums. Jonathan Arseneau's electric bass brings an unrivaled groove to the compositions and sometimes transforms into an electric guitar thanks to the bassist's palette of effects. Finally, the string trio present on half of the compositions transports the listener into the cinematic universe of the French pianist.

    Now based in Quebec, Simon arrived in Montreal in 2011 and quickly made a name for himself as one of the cities top players. He has been nominated for several ADISQ Awards (Album of the Year Jazz) and he received significant praise and recognition from CBC/SRC having been chosen as one of their rising stars with the Radio Canada Revelation Award which highlights and encourages the next generation of emerging artists. 'Piece of Mind' has already been garnering significant critical praise in France - tour dates to follow.
