Brian Simpson - Special Encore Event - Performance of the Month - Brian Simpson

Uploaded On:  Thursday August 1, 2019

Inspired keyboardist, composer, prolific studio musician, and producer, Brian Simpson is a master of all he purveys. His eloquent approach to playing, sophisticated harmonics sense, bluesy overtones, R&B flavor, and keen sense on how to craft a song that stands the test of time have made him the go-to man for many.

Through the years, Simpson has been revered for his unparalleled ability to compose unforgettable melodies and irresistible grooves. Simpson’s breakthrough as a solo artist began in 2005 with the #1 radio hit “It’s All Good.” The title track of It’s All Good proved instantly and joyfully prophetic, as it hit #1 on the Radio & Records Smooth Jazz Airplay chart and remained in the Top 5 for four months. His follow-up single “Saturday Cool” went Top 15.

He has toured with some of the greats of recent jazz history, including George Duke, Stanley Clarke, Larry Carlton, George Howard, Billy Cobham, and Gerald Albright. Brian has been the musical director for jazz saxophonist Dave Koz for nearly 20 years, and almost a decade the Musical Director of the ambitious and highly popular Smooth Jazz Cruise.

This performance was originally recorded live on August 4, 2016, at Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, CA.
