Richard Bliwas

The virtuoso pianist has been compared to Brian Wilson, Miles Davis, The Beatles, and Sun Ra— but as All About Jazz said in its review of Rising Rose Records 2004 release Ghost His writing is unmistakably original ….

Nine ( Dec. 2012) is an utterly unique collection of euphonic recipes, conjuring past and future stories with a mercurial texture and a melodic narrative. It's a masterful trio recording featuring the prolific musician, producer and film composer Bruce Ditmas on Drums plus Daniel Carter and Ned Goold each sitting in for their second Rising Rose session on Tenor.

Rising Rose Bakery (2011) is a tripped out exploration of improvisational psychadelic composition. Pop sensibility. Jazz essence. A lucid incarnation. Multi-instrumentalist Daniel Carter joins a select group of original musicians who have recorded on Rising Rose Records. His collaboration is instantly karmic and ignites the ensemble engine of this fluidly structured recording.
