Jazz pianist Ben Rosenblum and his trio will bring selections from their newest album, River City, as well as songs they’ve developed while on tour and cuts from their first record, Instead. Rosenblum’s original compositions and arrangements feature dramatic, narrative elements, in which improvisation is not only a personal expression but a transition from one mood to the next. The trio’s repertoire reaches beyond the jazz canon to also incorporate traditional South American, Irish, and Eastern European styles, modern musical theater, and classical music and movie soundtracks, expanding the range of what feels native to jazz, in particular the good-feeling, grooving, “dance music” side of its history.
