Roger Rosenberg

An A-list baritone man for over three decades, Roger Rosenberg studied at Indiana University, The New England Conservatory of Music, and under the tutelage of players like Phil Woods and composers like Harold Seletsky. He has worked with a stunning list of greats; do the names Tito Puente, Buddy Rich, Chet Baker, Lee Konitz, Janet Lawson, Miles Davis, Quincy Jones, John Scofield, Sarah Vaughn, Gerry Mulligan, Michael Brecker, The New York Philharmonic, Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, Bob Mintzer, Eddie Palmieri, David Lahm, Tom Scott, and T.S. Monk ring a bell? Add another 40 or so heavyweight names in jazz, latin, and pop, and you've got a start on Roger's resume. That Roger has been steadily in demand by the best of the best for so long is no mystery; his strong and searing solo voice combines with his powerful and swinging ensemble playing to make him a great addition to small and large sections alike

Lisa Maxwell's Jazz Orchestra: Shiny!

Read "Shiny!" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Lisa Maxwell, whose album Shiny! marks the recorded debut of her New York City-based Jazz Orchestra, is a pretty good composer and a very good arranger, even though several of her charts lean toward funk / rock, admittedly an acquired taste.

Chris Rogers: Voyage Home

Read "Voyage Home" reviewed by Niccolò Lucarelli

Il jazz non è soltanto un genere musicale: per qualcuno è anche un luogo affettivo, dove ritrovare le proprie radici, vecchie conoscenze, episodi della propria vita, atmosfere familiari. Accade anche per Chris Rogers in Voyage Home, il cui titolo, che può essere tradotto con “rotta verso casa," lascia intendere come l'autore abbia voluto percorrere un viaggio ...

Bob Mintzer: Seeing the bigger picture

Read "Bob Mintzer: Seeing the bigger picture" reviewed by Ben Scholz

Tom Goehring: A Reflected Journey

Read "A Reflected Journey" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

A Reflected Journey is a quintet date, but it doesn't have a quintet date feel about it. The man of the hour--trumpeter Tom Goehring--doubles on flugelhorn, and his front line partner, the ever engaging and well-rounded Roger Rosenberg, covers baritone saxophone, soprano saxophone and bass clarinet.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
