Having performed with everyone from Dizzy Gillespie to Paquito D' Rivera, Rick DellaRatta has established himself as one of the finest Jazz Singer/Pianists performing today. His unique and original piano playing and composing has been compared in print to Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, McCoy Tyner, Keith Jarrett and Thelonius Monk while his signature vocal sound and style has been likened to Chet Baker, Billy Holiday, Joao Gilberto, Michael Franks and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
