June 14 • 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm• $12
Award-winning New York City jazz pianist and composer Ben Rosenblum will play material from his upcoming second album River City at The Jazz Station in Eugene on Thursday, June 14th at 7:30pm, featuring rising jazz star and Bay Area native Kanoa Mendenhall on bass and highly regarded New York City drummer Ben Zweig. Described as an “impressive talent” by All About Jazz, Rosenblum was a finalist at the 2015 American Jazz Pianist Competition in Melbourne, Florida, and at the 2016 Jacksonville Jazz Piano Competition in Jacksonville, Florida, and has performed in bands led by Bobby Watson, Winard Harper, TS Monk, Curtis Lundy, Chris Washburne and many others jazz luminaries. This performance will be part of a two-week long West Coast tour celebrating the new album. In 2017, Rosenblum made his West Coast debut to mark the release of his debut trio album, Instead (4 stars, Downbeat Magazine). Highlights of this tour included a well-attended performance at Kuumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz, CA, and two sold out sets at Cafe Pink House in Saratoga, CA. Rosenblum and his trio recently returned from a two-week tour of Japan, and they toured in the Midwest and Canada earlier in the year.
