Matt Herskowitz Trio; “Forget Me Not – Homage to Lew Soloff” (2005/2017)

Performed by Matt Herskowitz, David Rozenblatt, Matt Fieldes, Lew Soloff

[This] was to be our first album as a trio and, to our delight, Lew agreed to play on it. When we began rehearsing for the recording in 2004, it was Lew’s unhinged creativity that inspired us to expand the structure of some of the pieces; we had to make space for him to stretch out and let his ingenuity run wild.

Othello (2009)

By David Rozenblatt

The work is set to a highly textured commissioned score by composer David Rozenblatt. If it must be categorized, you could call it jazz, but it contains all the peculiar variety and rich strangeness of music in a dream. This music feels inseparable from the hard-edged, super-stylish sets and lighting by Michael Korsch and the brilliant, glittering, barely-there costuming by Christine Darch. Visually and aurally, this is a world complete.
