Josh Roseman Announces New 12-Piece Big Band

Virtuoso Trombonist, Composer, Producer, and Bandleader Josh Roseman has just announced the full realization and definition of his 12-piece, all-star, multi-coastal ensemble, Extended Constellations. A year in the making, Roseman's visions have coalesced in a special Suite composed via a commission from The Jazz Gallery (NYC), to be premiered January 16th - 17th by the band, which features luminaries PETER APFELBAUM, BARNEY MCALL, TED POOR, Kneebody's SHANE ENDSLEY, and other edgy voices and rising stars from Brooklyn's new jazz scene. The Gallery Suite promises to be a breathtaking experience for both the listener and (quite literally) for the performer, audaciously pushing the limits of what's acoustically hearable and technically playable. EXTENDED CONSTELLATIONS will follow- up with presentations at THE PAINTED BRIDE (Philadelphia) on Jan 31st, 2009 and a subsequent Northeast mini-tour. To further Extend these musicians, ROSEMAN has been developing the group through a vigorous and continuing Multimedia Series at his Brooklyn studio, 58 NORTH SIX MEDIALABS, in which months of rehearsals, powwows, and performances have been archived for an upcoming release christening the studio's pioneering and paradigm- changing music distribution model, which has yet to be announced.
