“One of the most original, exciting, adventurous groups in L.A. right now.”
— LA Weekly

“Rosenboom is a phenomenon.”
— Los Angeles Times

“…it’s poetry…Rosenboom leaps from one extreme to another, doing both with the effortless flair of someone who has mastered his craft and isn’t shy to show it off.”
— Jazz Corner

"There is a filmmaker lurking within the musical vision of [Dan] Rosenboom."
— All About Jazz

"[Dan] Rosenboom is emerging as one of the strongest trumpeters from a particularly strong crop of West Coast-based players."
— Cadence Magazine

"Miles Davis, whose ghost lingered throughout, would have approved."
— Los Angeles Times

“Pop fans who may know of [Dan] Rosenboom because of his recent touring with Josh Groban have a lot to discover about the talented and adventurous trumpeter and composer. Although primarily a jazz performer and writer, Rosenboom has very wide tastes in music, ranging from traditional folk music from a variety of countries to contemporary classical music, hip hop and electronics. But one would expect that from a performer who has led the gypsy jazz-metal band Plotz!

Fallen Angeles has nine of Rosenboom’s originals performed by a particularly intriguing septet. The group consists of two horns from the upper register (the leader’s trumpet and Gavin Templeton on alto and flute), two low horns (Brian Walsh on bass clarinet and baritone and Vinny Golia on alto flute and the remarkable tubax), and a highly intuitive rhythm section comprised of pianist David Rosenboom (Daniel’s father), bassist Sam Minaie and drummer Caleb Dolister.

Throughout these unpredictable and often-cinematic performances, the individual improvisations are a natural outgrowth of Rosenboom’s arrangements-compositions and vice versa. While each of the musicians has spots along the way to solo, most memorable are the colors of the ensembles, the many moods that are explored, and the pure adventure that is a consistent part of the music.

To name a few highlights, “Ideology” has some wild playing with Golia’s monstrous tubax in the lead and a bit of Ornette Coleman-inspired alto from Templeton. A mysterious rhythmic pattern is felt throughout “Fallen Angeles.” The next five pieces form a suite. “Meditation” uses long tones as the basis for a performance that gradually becomes somewhat furious. The uptempo and passionate “Confrontation” and a slow-burning “Fury” (which has some dramatic playing by Golia), precede the bluish “Transformation” (with Walsh’s bass clarinet in the lead). “Elation” concludes the suite with a thoughtful if sometimes driving feature for pianist Rosenboom. Templeton’s wailing alto helps “Espionage” sound like a spy drama, and finally the leader’s trumpet is showcased on his ballad “While She Slept.”

Throughout Fallen Angeles, [Dan] Rosenboom’s writing and the sound of the ensemble is unlike anything heard before. This is jazz for the 21st century, an impressive effort well worth several listens.”

- Scott Yanow, author of ten books including Trumpet Kings, Jazz On Record 1917-76 and Jazz On Film
