As a sideman and a leader, Josh Roseman’s distinctive voice, boundless vision, and kaleidoscopic approach to music make him a genre-bending and compositional master of scrutiny. The Execution Quintet finds Trombonist and master of chaos Roseman joined by frequent co-conspirators and edgy creative voices harvested from Brooklyn’s new jazz scene. Taking the chordless groups of Henry Threadgill and the early Dave Holland Quintet as artistic points of departure, this quintet presents a program that is wholly original -- intense and driving at times, occasionally theatrical, and sometimes downright wacky, with dashes of game theory added for good measure.
"Intelligent groove music that appeals to the brain as well as the boudoir." - JOHN JANOWIAK, DOWNBEAT
“He’s onto something original; he plays ideas, not just lines and chords.” - LESTER BOWIE
