Jazz / World Music | Originals
First release 'Nine Short Films for the Blind', is a celebration of 36 years of composition and life on the road. As the name suggests, all nine tracks are intended to be listened to as nine separate soundscapes.
The Simontologists is the jazz/world music brainchild of Australian composer/multi-instrumentalist Simon Ross.
'The Simontologists' project is essentially the soundscape of the life of Australian multi-instrumentalist composer Simon Ross. After half a lifetime of jazz piano obsession, circumstance found Simon touring the world with country influenced four-piece Jetty Road, twice winning Best Group at the Country Music Awards of Australia (Golden Guitars), and four times touring extensively through the USA, Canada and Western Europe.
It was during these years Simon broadened his instrumental base to include acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, banjo, piano accordion and blues harmonica.
