Jimmy Bosch - trombone
Salsa Dura… Jimmy Bosch plays it, lives it, and tells it like it is! A fiery exponent of the progressive sound he calls “Salsa Dura” (Hard Salsa), Bosch masterfully portrays his life experiences and musical inspiration creating Salsa for the next century. As New York’s most sought after trombonist, he reinvigorates the Latin music scene by projecting his essence vis-à-vis his emphatic solos and rhythmic melodies which emanate from his soul and through his trombone. Whether before a sold-out audience, or in the company of the fans at home, Bosch unabashedly raises the raw intensity of his all-star band, and other musical groups as a guest soloist, igniting the spirit to relish in the swinging and complex mosaic of contemporary Latin music at its best-- Salsa Dura.
Born and reared in Hoboken, New Jersey to a Puerto Rican family, Bosch’s Salsa Dura is both a testament to and an evolution of Puerto Rican musical traditions
