Relax, it will be.
Rod
Not merely making the old sound new, but making the once "new" sound fresh again is the mystery of all great improvisors.
Barry
I would certainly add Brubeck as well.

For many talented improvisors, precision can become a prison. The many hours spent mastering difficult runs (in every key) demands a certain display of that mastery--and at breakneck tempos certain riffs located "in the fingers" will emerge--no matter what. But even the sophisticated ear, once dazzled, quickly becomes bored with the energetic routine, no matter how earnest the performance. No one really wants to listen to a musician, even a master, merely practice. It is rare that the caged bird truly learns to take flight and sing. Let's be honest: that's what happens when Ted Rosenthal touches the keys and teases out another instantly likeable, unique arrangement from an unforgettable songbook. In Ted's hands, rhythmic certainty is interrupted and one or two notes unexpectedly displaced, suddenly suggests new permutations, new landing places--even new melodic possibilities mid-stream. Not merely making the old sound new, but making the once "new" sound fresh again is the mystery of all great improvisors. And let's be truly honest: there just aren't that many around. Every time I listen to Out of This World a new favorite emerges; lately it's been "so in love"; and before that, "in the wee small hours of the morning"; and before that "out of this world." No pedestrian efforts here and a word about the recording quality: first rate! (That's two words, I know, but to posit just one example, the brushwork and subtle snare rattle are so faithful, it makes one feel as if you have the best table in the club!) And the balance among piano, bass, and drums is close to perfect. This is the way jazz was meant to sound, meant to be: Out of this World.

"Out of this world" has taken over my car. Once onerous errands are now interludes of delightful escape with Ted Rosenthal and his indescribably amazing talent. More than playing a great jazz piano, Ted creates icons. He redefines the standards, the American classics, so uniquely, so completely that it's impossible to hear them elsewhere without being reminded, without feeling in your bones, all the emotion, style and sophistication of Ted's recreations. (He's invented magical riffs and rips you won't find anyplace else.) Having heard his "Have you seen Miss Jones" or "Cry me a river" it's impossible to hear any other without running back to "Out of this world" to make sure it was as awesome as you remembered. Relax, it will be.

Get your hands on this new CD- you will be richly rewarded. Rosenthal mentions influences of Walton, Hancock, Tyner and Jamal on these arrangements. I would certainly add Brubeck as well. But I would suggest that the strongest influence on the general musical approach, is the work of Bill Evans. This is because Rosenthal (as Evans before him) is able to play complex harmonies, melodic lines and rhythyms with such grace and fluency, you do not initially recognize the depth and subtlety of what you are hearing. Typically performances in 5/4 time can feel quirky or odd. See how quickly you can discern which standard is being played in this meter? It is so naturally done that you don't realize it is happening.
Rosenthal's strong background in classical music and arranging is also evident. Check out his use of recurring motivic ideas in both "people will say we're in love" and in "cry me a river" and his use of pedal-point in "in the wee small hours of the mornining" which creates a lovely sense of quiet reflective of the subject of the song. And listen for the subtle Asian sounding harmonies in "how long has this been going on" and the wonderful bluesy take on gershwin's prelude #2.

All in all a great listen from musicians really in control of their craft with something new and interesting to say.
(ok, in case you were wondering, it is "embraceable you" that is played in 5/4 time).

Wow! Awesome CD. I am not particularly knowledgeable about jazz, but am a long time general music fan. The jazz standards, some pop, rock, folk, country, a little classical, ... I listen to and enjoy a lot of different kinds of music without being particularly knowledgable about any of it. That said, this is WONDERFUL. From the first time I listened to it, it was light and fun and interesting. Folds in some old standards, but is overall a fresh sounding work that really is delightful. I love it for active listening, but it also works in the background while I'm working on my PC (with enough going on to bring me out of the ether occasionally to smile at the music before diving back in to the work).

Having been amazed and pleased by the Ted Rosenthal Trio's Gershwin album of 2014, I obtained this previous album to become better acquainted with their jazz styling. As with Lynne Arriale, Jessica Williams, and do some extent, via his instruction under Darius Milhaud, Dave Brubeck, I have a particular regard for classically trained jazz pianists, whose background provides a wide range of musical idioms, meter, and extra precision in technique. Rosenthal swings and improvises so easily that his abilities in restrictive classical performances seems at odd; he actually engaged in both musics since youth, earning Bachelor's and Master's degrees in classical piano at the Manhattan School of Music while playing jazz. Stints with Gerry Mulligan and others in the 1990s and later Art Farmer and Phil Woods, among others, plus accompanying various vocalists led to his solo and trio projects. He is also on the faculty of the Julliard and Manhattan schools.

This album has Noriko Ueda on bass and Quincy Davis on drums, who bring expansion and extra development in the various tracks and a fuller, warmer sound. Rosenthal explores time signatures also, treating Out of This World in 9/8 and Embraceable You in 5/4. His study of Gershwin's Prelude #2 anticipates his subsequent album, and as Gershwin was influenced by the blues, the Trio underscores it. Whether up-tempo, as Roger & Hammerstein's People Will Say We're in Love, or in slow ballads, as Strayhorn's Lotus Blossom, the Trio offers a grand listening experience. Their harmony, improvisational variation, and precise technique in note and volume give pause. These are masterly performances.
