Hosted by Chars Presents ZOOM
About Ben Rosenblum: Award-winning jazz pianist, composer and accordionist Ben Rosenblum has been described as mature beyond his years, (Sea of Tranquility), an impressive talent (All About Jazz), who caresses [the music] with the reverence it merits (Downbeat Magazine).
An internationally-touring bandleader, Rosenblum has performed with his trio throughout the United States, including extensive tours of the Northeast, Midwest, South and West Coast, as well as in Canada, Europe and Japan. He was a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall's Stern-Perelman Auditorium with Maestro Reona Ito's New York Harmonic Band, and has appeared at numerous prestigious venues throughout the world, including at the Appel Room at Lincoln Center, Kuumbwa Jazz Center, Ravinia, the Library of Congress, Bird's Eye in Basel, Switzerland and Himawari-No-Sato Concert Hall in Yokohama.
Since the release of his debut album, Instead (4 stars, Downbeat), which features Curtis Lundy on bass and Billy Hart on drums, Rosenblum has received great critical acclaim. Jack Walton from the South Bend Tribune writes that Rosenblum displays complete mastery of the genres technical and emotional requirements . . . [and] pursues the musics challenges with youthful daring," while C. Michael Bailey from All About Jazz notes that there do emerge conservatoire aces with grit in their imaginations and a facility to express such in their playing. Ben Rosenblum is one such performer/composer."
Rosenblum was a finalist at the 2015 American Jazz Piano Competition in Melbourne, FL and at the 2016 Jacksonville Jazz Piano Competition in Jacksonville, FL, and his composition has received multiple awards from the ASCAP Foundation and the Downbeat Student Music Awards.
He has worked extensively with such jazz luminaries as Curtis Lundy, Neal Smith, Winard Harper, Wayne Escoffery and Deborah Davis, and he has shared the stage with Houston Person, Sean Jones, Dave Stryker, Steve Nelson, TS Monk and many others.
In 2018, Rosenblum celebrated the release of his second trio album, River City, described as "well-realized" and "richly romantic" by Jazziz Magazine. Rosenblum was born and raised in New York City, and is a graduate of the joint program between Columbia University and Juilliard School of Music.
