Josh Rosen

Josh Rosen has performed/recorded with jazz greats Joe Lovano, Mick Goodrick, George Garzone, Greg Hopkins, Bob Moses, Stan Strickland, Phil Grenadier, John Lockwood, Dennis Irwin, Steve Slagle, Bennie Wallace, George Schuller, The Either/Orchestra and Ethiopian master musicians Mulatu Astake and Mahmoud Ahmed, among many others.

A pianist and prolific composer, Rosen has released 7 albums. “American Waltz”, features jazz masters George Garzone and Mick Goodrick. “Rosen's compositions are considerably sophisticated...throughout this mix of alternately melodic and more tonally abstruse jazz, there’s a sensibility ranging from sly and funny to warmly, indelibly tuneful...absolutely gorgeous.” —Lucid Culture.

With Boston legend Stan Strickland (woodwinds, vocals), Rosen has produced three stellar albums: the intimate duo ”Instinct”; “Seasons”, a jazz Quartet; and in 2019, “Three Moments”, a brilliant improvisational trio with master percussionist Ra Kalam Bob Moses.

In 2016, ZiggleZaggle Music released a folk influenced duo project, “Brothers”, with Ralph Rosen (harmonica, drums) Josh recorded keyboards, bass and guitar

Rakalam Bob Moses: Song of the Free Will

Read "Song of the Free Will" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Though Ra Kalam Bob Moses is known primarily for his uncanny and profound drumming skills, few realize that he has forged a unique and highly personal piano style in parallel with his efforts as a percussionist, composer and bandleader. Few remember his wonderful band Compost with that other ineffable drummer / pianist, Jack DeJohnette. Compost recorded ...

Laszlo Gardony: Life In Real Time

Read "Life In Real Time" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Life In Real Time is somewhat unique in that it's in the mold of Laszlo Gardony's previous recordings and a departure from the norm for that pianist of note. And just how is that possible? That's easy to answer: Gardony hews to his norm by working with his longtime trio mates--bassist John Lockwood and drummer Yoron ...

Josh Rosen – Stan Strickland: Instinct

Read "Instinct" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Questo disco ha una duplice essenza, antitetica solo in apparenza: la fattura, inappuntabile, ma sull'altro piatto della bilancia una sostanziale inutilità. Vi alberga un senso di risaputo, di quieta e correttissima routine, di dialogo che ha anche episodi meritevoli ("Puffer Pond," “Slowdance," “Christmas Carol," “Lady Jaguar"), ma raramente in grado di coinvolgere, se non in epidermide, ...

Laszlo Gardony: Signature Time

Read "Signature Time" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

As composer, Laszlo Gardony posits--without much opposition--that the inspiration of all modern music owes a debt to the “birthplace of culture and sound: Africa. As a composer and pianist he develops his hypothesis with Signature Time, an album of considerable and somewhat dark beauty. Driven by the percussive nature of African music--in almost continuous binary rhythms--Gardony's ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
