Josh Roseman: Reimagining the Constellations
"There's so many of them. It's an amazing era for the instrument. It's very encouraging. It's not just good for the instrument, it's good for the music. It's good for people to see an instrument that is getting an overhaul in terms of the way it's presented, in real time, in front of people's eyes. I think that's always exciting. With that in mind, I created a trombonists' support network called the New York Slideworkers Union, or NYSWU. We're doing performances. Recording ensembles by trombonists. (nysu.org). I'm about to incorporate it as a non-profit and we're going to start releasing some of the stuff commercially."
Another iron to place in the fire.
