“What struck me about Simon Rowe’s playing when I first heard him as a sideman on a recording was that he had not only developed his own sound and conception, but that he also didn’t move in predicable directions. He has the pulse of jazz-the rhythm- and the drive to keep surprising himself.”


Nat Hentoff
(renowned author and jazz critic, Village Voice, New York Times, Wall Street Journal)

“Having fifty-plus years as a jazz artist, I have experienced the work of many great pianists, and, as a performer, Mr. Rowe comes from this extensive historical background. He is a well-schooled pianist, possessing excellent technique and great piano skills; as a jazz performer, he has a wide vocabulary, a large repertoire, and a great knowledge of many piano styles.”
