Ted Rosenthal Trio: Rhapsody In Gershwin

Read "Rhapsody In Gershwin" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The glories of George Gershwin have been well-documented in jazz settings. In fact, many would argue that Gershwin's music has been done to death. So does the world really need another tribute to this iconic tunesmith? In theory, it does not. Supply and demand, and the very nature of saturation, would say that a more-than-sufficient dose ...

Ted Rosenthal Trio: Wonderland

Read "Wonderland" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Lots of “Christmas Albums" come out every year. Many of them are nice for an easy holiday listen, but let's face it, expectations are low in terms of endurance, and they can often be rightfully seen as quickly done, quick buck affairs. Then there are the ones that have endured: the Vince Guaraldi Trio's A Charlie ...

Ted Rosenthal Trio: Out of This World

Read "Out of This World" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

2011 has been productive year in the recording realm for pianist Ted Rosenthal. His contribution to The Westchester Jazz Orchestra's superb Maiden Voyage Suite (WJO Records) helped elevate the re-imaging of pianist Herbie Hancock's classic Maiden Voyage (Blue Note, 1965) to the highest level of big band artistry. With Out of this World, Rosenthal slips back ...

Ted Rosenthal Trio: Out of This World

Read "Out of This World" reviewed by Edward Blanco

Borrowing from The Great American Songbook is a standard practice for many jazz artists, who include one or more pieces when rounding out a repertoire of primarily new material. Not so for pianist Ted Rosenthal, whose affinity for music from the Songbook is reflected on at least two previous recordings, Rosenthology (Concord Jazz, 1994) and One ...

Ted Rosenthal Trio: Out Of This World

Read "Out Of This World" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Standards, when presented in their original form, speak of the time and place of their creation, but part of their longevity is due to the fact that they aren't encased in an early twentieth century amber that fossilizes and dates the material. The music of George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Billy Strayhorn, and Richard Rodgers is timeless, ...

Ted Rosenthal Trio: Impromptu

Read "Impromptu" reviewed by Greg Simmons

On Impromptu, pianist Ted Rosenthal modestly credits every track to the original classical composer on which the song is based. It's a nice, self-effacing touch, but probably unnecessary. No one will misconstrue this album as anything but a modern jazz recording--and a good one at that--even if Rosenthal is performing adaptations. For the most ...

Ted Rosenthal Trio: Impromptu

Read "Impromptu" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

As legend has it, the term “third stream" was invented by Gunther Schuller in 1957, to prevent jazz and classical fans from resenting incursions onto their turf by the other side. This new musical entity would be neither classical nor jazz, and not just a simple merging of the two: it would be more than jazz ...

Ted Rosenthal Trio: My Funny Valentine

Read "My Funny Valentine" reviewed by Elliott Simon

Ted Rosenthal's My Funny Valentine finds the pianist joined by bassist George Mraz and drummer Al Foster in a tribute to singer Helen Merrill. Rosenthal and Mraz have toured extensively with Merrill in Japan and this CD serves up songs from her repertoire. The subtleties of the arrangements combined with intriguing juxtapositions and perfect lyricism make ...

Ted Rosenthal Trio: My Funny Valentine

Read "My Funny Valentine" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

In a skittish music industry where labels increasingly blur their identities and grab at gimmicks just to stay alive, it's reassuring to know that Venus Records continues to produce high-quality, straight-ahead jazz. Based in Japan but recording mostly in New York, Venus has a longstanding, signature focus on documenting the world's best piano trios, and My ...

Ted Rosenthal Trio: The King and I

Read "The King and I" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

While the Rogers and Hammerstein musical The King and I has long been a rich melodic source for improvisers, it's unusual for its songs to be gathered together on one CD. Here, the Ted Rosenthal Trio gives new life to that ageless material. Although based in Japan, Venus Records is known for assembling crack ...
