John Surman and Jack DeJohnette first played together in 1968, but didn't make a duo album together until The Amazing Adventures of Simon Simon in 1981. Immediately recognised as a special album it won the Record of the Year Award in Jazz Forum's Readers Poll. The press was equally enthusiastic. Down Beat: "Unrestrained delight! The stunning Adventures of Simon Simon shatters through several stylistic barriers in the most swingful of fashions - and goes right to the heart of modern musical artistry…5 stars."
