“Simon Denizart is a pianist in a class of his own, with obvious jazz influences, but also rock, world music and even neo-classical music” (Jérôme Davieau, “Cultivating a fluid, dynamic sound that brings him very close to the late Swedish pianist Esbjörn Svensson” (Christophe Rodriguez,, he plays sensitive, energizing music, sprinkled with subtle, accessible melodies.

In 2023 he began a new collaboration with the prestigious Canadian label Justin Time Records, which produced his forthcoming fifth album: Piece of Mind.
