Stan Strickland and Josh Rosen have been creating a sensation around Boston with their spellbinding duo performances. From their regular appearances at the Taylor House, to their triumphant delivery at the 2009 Sweet Chariot Festival South, these two veterans of the Boston jazz scene are an act not to be missed. Josh Rosen and Stan Strickland have been performing as a duo since 2007 and have been received by rousing standing-room-only audiences. The new CD features improvisational collaborations and compositions by Rosen.
