FORT MYERS, FL (Jan 9, 2023) –Ben Rosenblum, the internationally-touring, multi-instrumentalist has been described as a talent not to be missed. Rosenblum combines his modern, melodic sensibility with his broad knowledge of a variety of musical lineages from the past one hundred years. Drawn from an eclectic repertoire which includes selections from the jazz and popular music traditions, as well as global music influences from South America, Eastern Europe, Ireland and the Caribbean. The band never repeats the same program twice in a row – every evening is a unique experience shaped by the audience and the setting. Foulds Theatre at the Alliance for the Arts will be the perfect venue for An Intimate Night of Jazz.
Since the release of his debut trio album, Instead, Rosenblum has toured with his trio and sextet throughout the United States, including multiple extensive tours of the Northeast, Midwest, South and West Coast, and internationally in Canada, Europe and Japan. He was a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall’s Stern-Perelman Auditorium – with Reona Ito’s New York Harmonic Band – and has appeared at prestigious venues throughout the world, including at the Appel Room at Lincoln Center, Kuumbwa Jazz Center, Ravinia, Himawari-No-Sato Concert Hall in Yokohama, Bird’s Eye in Basel and the Library of Congress. His second album, River City, was called “richly romantic” and “well-realized” by JAZZIZ Magazine, which featured the title track as part of their Fall 2018 CD. Recently, Rosenblum released his third album, Kites and Strings, which is the first to feature him on both piano and accordion alongside his sextet, the Nebula Project. In 2020, the Nebula Project was voted runner-up for Best New Artist in JazzTimes’ Readers’ Poll.
The concert is set for February 1, with doors opening at 6:00pm and Ben taking the stage at 7:00pm. Tickets are $25 and available through Eventbrite.
