Musician

Jay Rosen

Born:

Jay Rosen was born in 1961 in Philadelphia. His family moved to Long Island, N.Y. in 1964. Jay's musical interest took shape from recorded music that was played around the house as well as two aunts and a brother that were all musicians. Musical vibrations affected Jay in deep, profound ways. Jay began music lessons at age eight on guitar and then piano. However, after seeing (and hearing) Tony Williams (with Sonny Rollins) at Carnegie Hall in 1971, Jay switched to the drums exclusively. Upon hearing Charlie Parker and John Coltrane at the age of 13, Jay decided to pursue jazz as a serious course of study

Kirk Knuffke / Joe McPhee Quartet + 1: Keep The Dream Up

Read "Keep The Dream Up" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Synergy might be the best way to describe the result of this assemblage of musicians. Cornetist Kirk Knuffke and saxophonist Joe McPhee combine their various ensembles to create an effect much greater than the sum of their separate parts. Knuffke has worked extensively with bassist Michael Bisio in duo and trio formats, plus in the bassist's ...

Read "In Memory of Mark Whitecage: The Nu Band Live At The Bopshop" reviewed by Troy Dostert


One of the underappreciated veterans of free jazz, Mark Whitecage passed away in March of 2021, leaving a well-established legacy of strong recordings in which his searing yet soulful alto saxophone merged with many of the more visible figures on the scene.

Four Quartets

Read "Four Quartets" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


Dry the pool, dry concrete, brown edged, And the pool was filled with water out of sunlight, And the lotos rose, quietly, quietly, and said shooby dooby doo—er, well, maybe not according to T. S. Eliot, but those aren't the four quartets we're talking about. Instead, we've got a mix of progressive and nostalgic takes on ...

Blue Reality Quartet: Blue Reality Quartet!

Read "Blue Reality Quartet!" reviewed by John Sharpe


Back in 2001 when reedman Michael Marcus' trio waxed a disc under the title Blue Reality (Soulnote, 2002), he could scarcely have imagined the circumstances under which he might resurrect the name. As the four masked faces on the cover of Blue Reality Quartet! show, times are sadly very different. Joining Marcus in the studio in ...

Brian Groder Trio: Luminous Arcs

Read "Luminous Arcs" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Il sessantasettenne trombettista newyorchese Brian Groder, alla testa di un trio coi fiocchi, confeziona uno di quegli album che rappacificano con la storia del jazz e le sue diramazioni. Solido quanto scevro da ogni banalità o facile aggancio con tracciati troppo battuti, Luminous Arcs, inciso alla fine del 2018 e uscito giusto un ...
