“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
