A rollicking, world-class jazz concert from the comfort of your home.
From their living room to yours, the Ben Rosenblum Trio perform an eclectic set of material ranging from jazz standards to original compositions to world music from Spain and Ireland. Featuring award-winning jazz pianist, accordionist, and composer Ben Rosenblum, drummer Ben Zweig, and bassist Marty Jaffee. Video by Eduardo Belo.
A graduate of the Columbia-Juilliard program, Rosenblum’s original music combines his extensive knowledge of the history of jazz with a free-wheeling, modern melodic sensibility and powerful narrative approach to the piano. His profound passion for jazz, swing and world music genres finds expression in his unique fusion of harmonic and rhythmic elements from a wide array of sources, and gives rise to a signature compositional sound and style at once iconoclastic and deeply rooted in such figures as Bill Evans and Wynton Kelly. His first priority in his composition and in his playing is always narrative – to tell a compelling story with his music, while reaching the hearts of his audience, connecting on an emotional, an intellectual and a spiritual level.
Rosenblum was a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall's Stern-Perelman Auditorium and has appeared at prestigious venues throughout the world, including the Appel Room at Lincoln Center, Kuumbwa Jazz Center, Ravinia, Himawari-No-Sato Concert Hall in Yokohama, and the Library of Congress. His second album, River City, was recently called "richly romantic" and "well-realized" by JAZZIZ Magazine, which featured the title track as part of their Fall 2018 CD.
