Josh Roseman is a busy man. Extremely busy. He's also an extremely bright one, which is good because otherwise one might pause to consider whether, with all those activities, he is wearing himself too thin. Turns out he is spreading wide, but nothing about him or his many pursuits is thin. Especially not his creativity.
Trombonist/composer/arranger/cosmic thinker Roseman also has a production studio and venue space in Brooklyn. He heads five bands that play different kinds of music, two of which will have new recordings out over the next several months. Then there are sideman gigs with various colleagues, including Dave Holland
's renowned Big Band.
Veteran All About Jazz contributor R.J. DeLuke
spoke with Roseman about a number of projects that he's been working on the past couple years, including his New Constellations Band, a larger unit he calls the King Froopy Allstars, and 58 North 6, his little laboratory environment," where Roseman and staff are busy producing, putting on live shows and helping artists bring their projects to life.
