Ted Rosenthal Trio
‘Tis the season and all, so the clever pianist has dropped a holiday disc that puts craft and heart in a neck and neck race. I like the triple time “Angels We Have Heard On High” for the sparks it shoots off, and his “Dance of the Reed Flutes” points Tchaikovsky toward the Caribbean while still managing a snowflake or three. If the band veers away from the wintery vibe for moment or two, that’s a good thing their originals are nifty, too.
