After its inception in 2010, Stranahan/Zaleski/Rosato quickly developed a special group sound that is rare to find in this day and age. Within a year, the group released its début album Anticipation (2011) to wide acclaim, of which All About Jazz writes, “Throughout the CD, drummer Colin Stranahan, pianist Glenn Zaleski, and bassist Rick Rosato achieve a seamless harmony…” The Ottawa Citizen also remarks, “‘Anticipation’ helps set the standard high for not only jazz 20-somethings, but for musicians of all ages.” We wrote about the trio in April when they performed at the Gallery, and also made available an exclusive stream of “Limitless,” the title track from their new album (expected October 2013).
Want to learn more about the band? Here are a couple of our favorite YouTube videos of the trio: the first is their odd-metered rendering of “All the Things You Are,” from Anticipation, which is followed by a 2011 live performance of the title track “Anticipation” in Montreal and a five-minute segment about the band by Brooklyn Independent Television, which originally aired in January.
