“He is definitely a bassist to listen for - a compelling soloist, a rock-solid foundation, and a blooming compositional voice.” - David Ryshpan, Porkpiejazz

“It should be noted here that Rosato resembles no less a star of the bass viol as Charlie Haden for his lovely tone.” - Rob Johnson, Denver Jazz Music Examiner

“Rick Rosato (22) is one of the most versatile and virtuosic bass players around. His time is impeccable and his solos captivating. Rick’s sense of form, melody and harmony are as apparent as his perfect technical execution.” - Ben Van Gelder, benvangelder.com

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
