An A-list baritone man for over four decades, Roger Rosenberg studied at Indiana University, The New England Conservatory of Music, and under the tutelage of players of Phil Woods. He has worked with a stunning list of greats; Tito Puente, Buddy Rich, Chet Baker, Lee Konitz, Miles Davis, Quincy Jones, John Scofield, Sarah Vaughn, Michael Brecker, Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, Bob Mintzer, Eddie Palmieri, and Steely Dan.
Add another 40 or so heavyweight names in jazz, latin, and pop, and you’ve got a start on Roger’s resume.That Roger has been steadily in demand by the best of the best for so long is no mystery; his strong and searing solo voice combines with his powerful and swinging ensemble playing to make him a great addition to small and large sections alike. He excels at many styles of music and is a crack first-call N.Y. session player to boot. An accomplished woodwind doubler, he also plays clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, and flutes. His work has been acknowledged by the Downbeat critics and by an NARAS MVP award.
