When you hear the word Jazz, you might think tradition. When I think of jazz, I think innovative. You could think old-fashioned, when if you open your ears you’ll discover it’s a genre that is trailblazing and constantly reinventing itself. Music and art is all about perspective and without uttering a word, the musicianship of The Javier Rosario Trio speaks louder than any word could. Hailing from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Javier Rosario infuses his world experience in his playing, inviting listeners to rethink any preconceived perceptions and to come along for the ride. Zak and Scott come in as transformative artists in their own right and with Javier have a wonderful synergy that rewards music aficionados and passerbys alike.
