Mara Rosenbloom Quartet Mar 9 , 8 PM, All Ages

March 9

"Rosenbloom renews the trite formulas of jazz with sparkling compositions that are both lyrically contemplative and rhythmically pulsating...This quartet plays music that renders believable the future of jazz. As both a player and composer, Rosenbloom is already singular and ahead of those players satisfied to reside in the dull water of familiar elements." All About Jazz

"Mara Rosenbloom has something special. I saw it coming even in her early compositions. She just has a musical vision and not even music college was able to dilute it. Listen and watch as her music evolves. We are all going to be more and more delighted by it."
Kenny Werner

"Fresh. Honest"
Jason Lindner

"Definitely on our People-to-watch- list, Mara Rosenbloom is...still quite young [but] there's already enough proof that we can expect a lot of beautiful music from this talented musician.", Belgium

"[the Mara Rosenbloom Quartet] is totally what the New York music scene is about for me – this is what actually makes it worthwhile to go see all those shows."
Ines Kuusik, All The Things...New York Jazz and More

"Original and refreshing new sound."
Dr. Nelson Harrison

"It's fairly infrequent that my attention is captured by good jazz as of late, but fellow NYU alum Mara Rosenbloom's new record School of Fish has been spinning steadily in my stereo this week. Mara is an incredibly talented composer and pianist whose use of space has sometimes amazed me, sometimes confounded me. On School of Fish, her modular tunes give her similarly talented band plenty of room to function as an elastic unit, stretching and contorting her melodies into shifting shapes and forms."
Justin Goldner, Subdiversity
