about

"A musician dedicated to exploration and expression, regardless of anyone's imagined boundaries."
— Chris Barton, Los Angeles Times

"One of the most original, exciting, adventurous groups in L.A. right now."
— Gary Fukushima, LA Weekly

"Young trumpet dynamo Dan Rosenboom, one of the more interesting Los Angeleno players, impresses with the fluidity of his ideas..."
— Josef Woodard, DownBeat Magazine

“Daniel Rosenboom’s writing and the sound of the ensemble is unlike anything heard before. This is jazz for the 21st century.”
— Scott Yanow, author of thousands of articles for the All Music Guide to Jazz

"Unsayable Absence" is an exploration of cross-genre pollination over the backdrop of jazz; an experiment in stretching to the edge of the universe with one foot on the ground; a testament to the soul.

The phrase "Unsayable Absence" is taken from a Rumi poem entitled "Listening." This poem is appropriately inscribed on the ceiling of the Blue Whale directly above the stage. For me the "unsayable absence" is the space in one's heart that opens when ego is purged - a space where the energy of the universe can enter, grow, and ultimately transport one to a higher state of consciousness.

"Orenda Records is a small Southern California label that punches above its weight... Orenda’s offerings are informed by rock, modern classical, and jazz, and combine these genres in a natural, organic fashion...
