Roxy Coss: Disparate Parts

Read "Disparate Parts" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Let's just get thing one out into the open right away: Disparate Parts has plenty of balls to spare. Saxophonist Roxy Coss' acute, teasingly biting tone and rich, no boundaries disposition to composing and jamming has placed her high in the generational echelon of new and challenging players. She willingly and unapologetically blends and blurs the lines to suit any and all missives, and the fourteen fireballs heard loud and clear on Disparate Parts broach nothing less. Commandeering ...

Roxy Coss: Quintet

Read "Quintet" reviewed by Paul Rauch


At times, saxophonist Roxy Coss can appear to be a whirlwind. Over the past decade, Coss has firmly established herself as a saxophonist, bandleader, composer, and activist. She has toured extensively, most notably with trumpeter Jeremy Pelt. She founded Women In Jazz Organization (WIJO) to combat misogyny in jazz culture, and create gender equity in terms of opportunity and community. With the release of her new album, Quintet (Outside In Music, 2019), she has now authored five recordings under her ...

Roxy Coss: The Future is Female

Read "The Future is Female" reviewed by Paul Rauch

Roxy Coss: Standing Out

Read "Roxy Coss: Standing Out" reviewed by Paul Rauch


All About Jazz: You have recently released a new CD, Chasing the Unicorn (Posi-Tone, 2017), just a year after the release of Restless Idealism (Origin, 2016). Albums are like a snapshot of a timeframe, how has that musical image changed in a year? Roxy Coss: More back story is it was recorded more than a year apart, even though they were released a year apart, so there was actually more time between recordings, almost two years. When I ...

Roxy Coss: Chasing the Unicorn

Read "Chasing the Unicorn" reviewed by Paul Rauch


The title of the third, and latest release of New York based saxophonist Roxy Coss, Chasing the Unicorn (Posi-Tone, 2017), enables a vision that all artists embrace-that elusive and mythical state of total expression attained by only an elite few, that which not only presents beauty and passion to the universe, but is integrated into the social and spiritual dynamic of the culture it embraces. The pursuit in itself is where sounds, sights, and emotions are gathered to create true ...
