As part of the Jazz@Union’s 2nd Annual “Women in Jazz”, the jazz pianist Michele Rosewoman performs a solo concert at the Union United Methodist Church on Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 7:00 p.m.
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 by fusing Afro-Cuban styles with intelligent and modern post-bop. Throughout her career, Michele has also integrated Cuban religious music into her musial output, forging a uniquely New Yor-Uban" sound. Michele has performed with such jazz luminaries as Julius Priester, Oliver Lake, Reggie Workman, Celia Cruz, Paquito D’Rivera, and the Cuban master vocalist and drummer Orlando “Puntilla” Rios. As a bandleader, she has led two ensembles, New Yor-Uba and Quintessence, to tremendous critical acclaim.
Michele’s most recent album, The In Side Out, was released in 2006 on Advance Dance Disques. The album, fusing jazz with Afro-Cuban rhythms, R&B, and funk, features Michele’s ensemble Quintessence along with special guests including David Fiucynzki and Josh Roseman.
