Like Songs Like Moons
Rose Ellis – vocals
Glenn Zaleski – piano
Pablo Menares – bass
Ross Pederson – drums
“This is an impressive debut, not least because Ellis wrote eight of the eleven tracks herself. I am reminded of Joni Mitchell by her storytelling lyrics, and a similar approach to melody, which makes for unexpected twists and turns before the song is run.” London Jazz News
“Crystal clear intonation, adept phrasing and a luminescent spirit”, “a first rate debut album”

The album, released on the ZenneZ music label, contains 11 songs including the song ‘Early In The Morning’ for which Rose received the Herb Alpert Young Composers Award from the ASCAP foundation and an exclusive recording of the song ‘Preacher Boy’ by Billie Holiday which she never had the chance to record.
On this record Rose worked with some of New York’s leading musicians: Glenn Zaleski on piano (Ravi Coltrane, Lage Lund, Ari Hoening), Pablo Menares on bass (Melissa Aldana, Claudia Acuna) and Ross Pederson on drums (Kenny Werner, Manhattan Transfer, Grace Kelly).
