A musician dedicated to exploration and expression, regardless of anyone’s imagined boundaries.
– Chris Barton, Los Angeles Times
A singularly creative voice whose unique aesthetic encompasses an array of idiosyncratic influences…a lyrical virtuoso with a commanding tone, whose expansive trumpet technique is saliently paralleled in his diverse writing…an artist on the rise.
– Troy Collins, All About Jazz
In a time marked by unpredictability and absurd realities, music imbued with spontaneity and improvisation seems especially relevant. Internationally recognized trumpet player and composer-producer-entrepreneur Dan Rosenboom embraces the chaos and seeks to endow us with hope and joy along the way.
Absurd in the Anthropocene – out January 31, 2020 via Gearbox Records – is in line with his abstract musicianship and virtuous experimentalism but, naturally, pushes the envelope. The record’s inspirations run the gamut from Miles Davis and Ornette Coleman to Frank Zappa, Soundgarden, and Squarepusher, and its title refers to the complicated and often surreal times in which we live.
