“ 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 “ John Adcock, Jazz Journal
" The three musicians listen closely to each other and often create with a single voice, displaying an attractive group sound " Scot Yanow, LA Jazz Scene Magazine
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. Moments in Trio Volume Two is scheduled for release in January 2019.
In addition, the trio has recently collaborated on an album with French jazz singer, Sarah Eden, which was released in September 2018 on label Plaza Mayor Company, Ltd.
