Praised by Downbeat as a “star of American music," pianist, composer, and educator Michele Rosewoman has made her mark in the jazz world as a highly original artist, fusing Afro-Cuban influences with intelligent and modern post-bop. Throughout her varied career, Michele has performed with such jazz luminaries as Julian Priester, James Spaulding, Billy Hart, Oliver Lake, Reggie Workman, and with Celia Cruz, Paquito D'Rivera, Chocolate, and Orlando “Puntilla" Rios. As a bandleader, she has led two ensembles, Quintessence and New Yor- Uba, to tremendous critical acclaim.

Michele's most recent recording, The In Side Out, was released in 2006 on Advance Dance Disques. The album, fusing jazz with Cuban folkloric music, R&B, and funk, features her Quintessence ensemble along with special guests. To date, The In Side Out has earned tremendous critical acclaim, with Jazziz declaring “Once again, Rosewoman shows that she's an original thinker making uncompromising and forward-looking jazz - which just happens to be accessible and viscerally exciting."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
