Stephan Crump’s Rosetta Trio

Rosetta Trio comes on like a quiet power
trio, one that presents melodic material
with aural elegance and no artifice.
~ Josh Jackson (NPR)

Yes, this is nice
unusually nice

Chamber-jazz ensemble,
intuitive all-string improv trio

With the nice woody
bass sound
(well oaked

Earthy, but organic lite
“equally alluring and askew”*

Cycling & circling
& still moving
(trés nice
