Ted leads a stellar trio on Rosenthology, (CCD-4702) from the Concord Jazz label. The intuitive, interactive playing from the members of his trio -- Mike Formanek on bass and Billy Drummond on drums -- produce a fascinating program of standards, jazz classics and original material. The standards undergo what Ted refers to as "deranging," which is basicallly taking a tune, dismantlying it, reharmonizing parts, and presenting it in a new way while maintaining its soul. A genius of reharmonization, Ted transforms familiar standards like "Love Walked In" and "Strike Up The Band" into wholly original works. This adventurous spirit is evident throughout the disc. Rosenthal's dazzling technique and creative imagination make Rosenthology worth studying.
