Merrimans' Playhouse Jazz Performance Series presents the Roxy Coss Quintet !
Roxy Coss is a New York City based saxophonist/composer. Her CD release: Chasing the Unicorn (Posi-Tone Records) received a 4-Star Downbeat review, and Roxy was recently featured in JazzTimes. Roxy has become one of the most unique and innovative saxophonists on the New York scene, a definitional voice of the Millennial Movement in Jazz. Downbeat called her "an exceptional young talent", and she has been listed in the Downbeat Critics Polls as a "Rising Star" on soprano saxophone the past four years. In 2016, Coss was named a recipient of an ASCAP Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award, and also chosen to headline at the Newport Jazz Festival.The Roxy Coss Quintet performs many of Roxy's original compositions in the modern jazz style, her arrangements and adaptations of tunes from the American Standard and Modern Jazz songbook, as well as some Popular favorites. The Quintet features some of todays brightest stars on the New York Jazz scene, and is grounded strongly in the classic Jazz tradition, bringing together the sounds of Art Blakey and Duke Ellington, with a modern texture and feel, relevant to todays musical and cultural landscape.
