Rick Simpson - Jazz Pianist/Composer

Welcome to the website of Jazz Pianist and Composer Rick Simpson

On February 2nd myself, alongside James Allsopp, Tori Freestone, Will Glaser and Dave Whitford performed my arrangements of Radiohead’s ‘Kid A’ to a sold out room at the Vortex in London, there’s a recording of that performance below

We plan of doing Amnesiac in the near future and hopefully playing the Kid A material in other venues in the future.


I’m also excited about being asked to do US bass hero Michael Janisch’s new band, alongside Nathaniel Facey, George Crowley and Shaney Forbes. These guys are all huge musical inspirations for me so I’m very looking forward to playing Mike’s music. We have a performance at Kings Place in London on September 27th.
