The Rossano Sportiello Trio: Lucky To Be Me, Arbors Piano Series, Vol. 22
Rossano Sportiello - piano Frank Tate - bass Dennis Mackrel - drums
"Rossano's understanding of jazz from ragtime into the present is deep, intuitive, and internal, and what comes out is his own timeless Mainstream piano. His playing is simultaneously a loving homage to the great players but also a personal expression of what he feels about that particular chord sequence, that melody line, right now. And if you haven't been lucky enough to hear Rossano live, he is one of those rare improvisers, wholly comfortable in the recording studio: his recorded music accurately reflects what he does in performance."
—Michael Steinman celebrates music on his widely-read, influential blog, JAZZ LIVES
