Kiselicki returns to the Hard Jazz Cafe Troudabour after ten years
Simon returned in July to the Hard Jazz Cafe Troudabour (Dubrovnik) after ten years, where he had performed every summer for ten years with recognised Dubrovnik jazzers. This year he performed as a welcome guest with the Maja Savic Quartet.
Same No More
"Nine compositions, passing through time and its three dimensions: the past, present and future, it is revealed that nothing is as it is or what it seems (whether it was or will be) and it is audible that everything is variable...
I invite you to listen to my solo piano album 'Same No More'. Recorded in 2009, ten years ago, I could have even called the album 'Ten Years Ago', but either way in ten years time it will still be 'Same No More' . Well now's the time to release the album into the world, so let the wind blow it further away from the drawer it collected spiderwebs from!
Peace and love,
