Album Notes
Daniel Rosenboom (b. 5/7/1982) is a young trumpet virtuoso, composer, and creative artist who seeks to break musical boundaries by fusing styles in new and inventive ways. By combining the sounds of contemporary classical music with rock and roll, heavy metal, hip-hop, jazz, experimental electronic music, and traditional folk music from the Balkans, North India, and Middle-East, he is creating a brand of indefinable and hair-raising music. Uncompromising intensity, tender melodic sensibility, keen intuition, inventive improvisation, the precision of a classical virtuoso with the fervor of a metal rocker, are all phrases audiences have used to describe Rosenboom’s unique approach to music.

As a soloist and collaborator, he has appeared on festivals and in recitals at the International Trumpet Guild’s annual conference, University of York, England, the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, the La Mama Theater in New York City, at REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney CalArts Theater), the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California Institute of the Arts, the Eastman School of Music, the Aspen Music Festival, Music Academy of the West, the Lake Placid Institute's Trumpet Seminar, Idyllwild Arts and Interlochen Arts Academy. With orchestras and chamber ensembles, he has appeared on such stages as Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Berlin Philharmonie, Opera City in Tokyo, the Hollywood Bowl, and in music festivals all over the USA. Rosenboom has studied with some of the world’s premiere educators and pedagogues at the Eastman School of Music, UCLA, and California Institute of the Arts.

He plays regularly with PLOTZ! (http://www.plotzmusic.com), the electro-gypsy neotrad-dance band, jams on fast-paced, intense originals and sideways-groovin, traditional Balkan party tunes that rock! Also, he performs with the Industrial Jazz Group (http://www.uglyrug.com) and freelances extensively in Los Angeles and internationally. Recently he has performed and recorded with McKuroBoom, a trio with Kai Kurosawa (Warr Guitar) and Brian McLaughlin (Drums), and VR, a guitar/trumpet duo with east-coast guitar virtuoso, David Veslocki. Other projects and ensembles include the Vinny Golia Large Ensemble, the Los Angeles Trumpet Quartet (with John Fumo, Jeff Kaiser, and Kris Tiner), and collaborations with Irmin Schmidt from CAN, the Grande Mothers of Invention (with Napoleon Murphy Brock, Don Preston, Roy Estrada, Miroslav Tadic, and Christopher Garcia), Brad Dutz, and Harris Eisenstadt.

'Bloodier, Mean Son"...perhaps the most surprising (and great) disc we've heard.
Featuring Daniel Rosenboom on trumpet & electronics, Derrick Spiva, Jr. om piano, Jake Vossler on electric guitar, Orest Balaban on electric bass, Michael Pisaro on sine-tones, Randy Gloss on tabla, Austin Wrinkle on drums & tabla and Jacqeline Humbert - voice. Compositions by Rosenboom, Nick Didkovsky, Vinny Golia Derrick Spiva, Robert Lax and Michael Pisaro. "Evolution" is a tight, progressive work for intricate trumpet, electric guitar and electric bass played at breakneck speed with midi-drum machine programmed to play these difficult parts. It is as if Nancarrow wrote for a prog/jazz/rock band. "Conflict and Confluence" prog, metal and fusion sounds into an unlikely and successful hybrid that is unlike anything I've heard before. As the el. guitar, bass and drums lock in play their lines together the trumpet plays precise counterpoint with/against them. Vinny Golia's "39.1 Degrees Celsius" is a solo trumpet work for mutated trumpet sounds, well played by Mr. Rosenboom. "Zones of Coherence" is again a solo trumpet work for layers on intricate and twisted trumpet sounds. As this piece evolves the layers of trumpet parts swim around one another with occasional buzzing echo-plexed flurries. Mr. Spiva's "Twenty-Seven" features samples sitar, complex tabla-fueled rhythms and spectacular trumpet soloing. Quite similar to John Mayer's later Indo-Jazz Fusion bands. Mr. Pisaro's "Every Night (Harmony Series 12C)" features distant drones floating in space, patience is required to observe the nuances of each drone as it sails by. "Music for Unstable Circuits" sounds like they are using an old fashioned computer with old science fiction-like sounds erupting in waves around the echoed trumpet lines. It is alien sounding and quite mesmerizing. The final piece is the title track and it was composed by Nick Didkovsky, leader of local prog sensation, Doctor Nerve. It does have that great, feisty rocking groove with some great trumpet and prog/metal guitar soloing. 'Bloodier, Mean Son" is an anagram for Daniel Rosenboom's name and is perhaps the most surprising (and great) disc we've heard from Nine Winds. - BLG

Rosenboom goes for the jugular...running through time signatures like a box of K
Daniel Rosenboom's trumpet and electronics tour de force Evolution captures all the gravity of '70s prog rock with a dramatic flair of Freddy Mercury-proportions. If the sampled electric guitar intro doesn't get your adrenaline going, time to holdup a little mirror in front of your mouth—are you breathing? Seriously, Rosenboom goes for the jugular both rhythmically and melodically, running through time signatures like a box of Kleenex at an AA meeting. It makes me wonder what this would sound like as a concerto for trumpet, ditching the electronics for a live death metal band. And why not? The piece already comes with the obligatory three-movement construction. Someone get Bolt Thrower on the phone.
