Jazz Saxophonist & composer Ralph Simon's Postcards Records CD release as a leader, entitled Ralph Simon: As, features an ensemble of like-minded players who also leave their musical imprint on this collection of vivid and challenging compositions. The result is an invigorating mix of straight-ahead tunes and more unusual pieces, including the first recording of the song Skin on Skin, written by the great composer /vocalist Annette Peacock.

“… Finally Simon's second album arrived . . . his tenor and soprano, with rich and deep tones, vibrate though the transparent space . . . a very serious music, remarkably rich and colorful." - Swing Journal (Japan)

Besides the stellar musicianship of Simon, the album also features Jazz drummer Billy Hart and the last recorded performances of the late great pianist Gene Adler. As both an example Simon’s musical revelations and as a historic documentation of the creativity of this ensemble of renowned musicians, the album Ralph Simon: As stands as a testament to the inventive spirit of Jazz music.
