Instinct

Josh Rosen, piano, compositions / Stan Strickland, woodwinds, vocals, percussion

"With the soul of an improv jam session, these two are one of the tastiest, new treats to come along in a while. Fine stuff that adults will love hearing when they are in an off-the-clock mode. Check it out." Chris Spector, Midwest Record


"finishing each other’s thoughts and phrases as these tunes wend their way from churchy, soul-jazz to more abstract precincts. Rosen and Strickland are more than just in sync - they often sound like a single musician playing two instruments." -Kevin R. Convey, Boston Herald

3play+    American Waltz

"...Bill Frisell–style Americana. Rolling piano chords, subdued electric guitar, muted trumpet, and that easy waltz tempo..." - The Boston Phoenix

"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." - Lucid Culture

3play+: American Waltz
