Default Re: Can Simon play jazz?

I believe Simon started out in his fathers Big Band and later moved on....

Therefore, early on, he was playing big band music, some jazz and his early infuences are all jazz related...

The performance on the video was excellent in my opinion...

While I am not fond of his association with Babko as it takes away from his monstrous playing...

I have most of Simon's solo stuff, with Beck, Priest, Toto, members of the Who, instructional DVD's, etc...

The guys on hundreds of albums....

One of my favorite players of all time..Just saw him play with Greg Howe, Eddie Jobson, Trey Gunn, and Marco Minneman on duel drums!!!!


The guy can play anything with authority!!! I watched them tear up Mahavishnu material as though it was a cakewalk!!!!

Yeah, he can jazz it too!!!!
