"When bassist Pat Senatore convenes his trio with pianist Josh Nelson and drummer Mark Ferber, something quite magical happens. Within the contours of the song form, a three-way musical conversation transpires where color, space, dynamics, rhythm and melodic invention flow freely. It’s supposed to happen all the time in jazz but rarely does it occur with such joyful synchronicity." --Kirk Silsbee, Downbeat
After the success of the CD, Ascensione, on Fresh Sound Records, the Trio is preparing to record a follow-up album. They will be performing some tunes from Ascensione as well as some for the up-coming CD.
The Trio has evolved from the many years these three great musicians worked together at Vibrato. In the process, they developed a special confidence in one another, which kept expanding to a higher level, like the title tune, which is Italian for ascending. They will be performing the songs from the album, which is a combination of their original tunes and jazz standards.
Bassist, Pat Senatore, is the Artistic Director for Vibrato who is known for his impeccable sense of time, velvet sound and technical mastery. His extensive resume includes stints with Stan Kenton, The Tijuana Brass, Peggy Lee, Carmen McRae, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Eddie Harris, Joe Pass…to name a few. He also owned and operated his own jazz club, Pasquale’s, on the beach in Malibu.
Pianist Josh Nelson is a rare young talent with a unique touch and sound that is undeniably his own. He recently toured with the incomparable Natalie Cole. His resume includes stints with: Anthony Wilson, Ernie Watts, Tom Scott, Jack Sheldon, Peter Erskine, Queen Latifah, and Sara Gazarek – to name a few.
