About Oscar Rossignoli:
Honduran-born pianist Oscar Rossignoli folds many traditions into his music, from his classical music formation to his passion for Latin and North American jazz. He’s currently based in New Orleans and works with some of the city’s best jazz musicians. He has also established his reputation in various settings and bands, including his brilliant Extended trio with Matt Booth and Brad Webb and by leading his own quartet.
His latest self-released album, Inertia, marks his first full-length solo piano project. The record, which he says he had been wanting to do for a long time, showcases his long relationship with his instrument of choice, as well as his process of discovery through improvisation. Tracks range from original compositions to improvisations and include a nod to Chopin and a tribute to the late great Chick Corea.
