Gwilym Simcock

I heard some fine jazz piano on Radio Three as I was channel hopping on the way home from work on Friday.

It turned out to be a guy called Gwilym Simcock (born 24 February 1981 in Bangor, Gwynedd).

http://open.spotify.com/track/33eZP6JxaVALyf9fCkhHaf takes you to him as an artist on Spotify.

Here's an interview from The Guardian last week.

With a following wind I may be able to get the the launch of his new album Tuesday night.

We have a new - and very youthful - Welsh Born Icon.

(Strange to see that it is more than five years -see Icons passim - since I fell for Keith Jarrett's ivory tinkling in exactly the same way.)
