“ Taubenhouse, Lippi and Rosato are clearly highly skilled in working together and keen to explore musical possibilities, tones and textures, but not at the expense of accessible, melodic and engaging content “ - Jazz Journal
" Yaniv Tabenhouse once again takes moments of the classical and moments of jazz and designs a sparkling session of music with more delightful Moments In Trio, Volume One, pleasantly laying the musical groundwork for Volume two " - All About Jazz
" The three drive with excitement on “Pigeon House Blues” and are festive for “Paratodos.” Impressive teamwork. " - Jazz Weekly The Yaniv Taubenhouse Trio is a contemporary jazz ensemble based out of New York City, formed in 2014 by pianist Yaniv Taubenhouse, bassist Rick Rosato and drummer Jerad Lippi. The trio comes from a long lineage of musical influences both in and out of the jazz world and performs regularly in the US and internationally.
The group's repertoire features originals by Taubenhouse, Rosato and Lippi as well as standards, with the on-edge embrace of virtuosic chops, the tender love of melody driven ballads, groove oriented percussion, as well as a number of fully developed thematic suites more akin to traditional classical forms than jazz.
Moments in Trio - Volume One is the first one in a series of recordings of the trio which was released on Fresh Sound Records and has received rave reviews. In addition, the trio collaborated on an album with French jazz singer, Sarah Eden, which was released on Label Plaza Mayor Company Ltd. Perpetuation - Moments in Trio Volume Two was released on Fresh Sound Records in January 2019 to highly acclaimed reviews.
" Yaniv Taubenhouse possesses a rare gift as a musician and pianist; the combination of virtuosity, curiosity along with the courage to use his art as a vehicle to bring his joy and pain to the surface. Taubenhouse has divided his efforts between the studies of classical and jazz repertoire and technique, the results of which are both a finely tuned interpretive talent along with inspired improvisational skills. His compositions have a compelling familiarity that reflects his empathy and charisma " - Robert Ginsburg, NPR Host - Shades of Jazz, KUAF 91.3FM.
