descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Simon Rose performances have ranged from solo to improvising orchestras in Europe, US and Canada. Interest as a free improviser developed exploring the possibilities created by purposefully limiting himself to the alto saxophone (solo alto Procession FMR 2005). During the last two years while based in San Francisco and Berlin, Rose has introduced the baritone saxophone, exploring the possibilities offered by the larger bore's harmonic range (solo baritone Schmetterling Not Two Records, 2011).

Recent collaborations in small groups have included Jan Roder, Clayton Thomas, Mark Sanders, Kjell Nordeson, Simon Fell, Steve Heater, Christian Marien, Oluyemi Thomas, Klaus Janek, Liz Allbee, Steve Noble, Olaf Rupp, Antonio Borghini, Chris Chafe, Kanoko Nishi, Ava Mendoza, Weasel Walter, Dave Tucker, Damon Smith, Scott Looney, Pauline Oliveros, Charity Chan, Colin Stetson, Yorgos Dimitriadis, Dominic Lash, Jen Baker, Jakki Tolvi, Thomas Helton, Hilary Jeffery, Klaus Kuervers, Alan Wilkinson and Pascal Nichols amongst others. Participation in large groups has been with Marco Eneidi Orchestra, London Improvisers Orchestra, Ensemble directed by Evan Parker and Roland Ramanan Tentet. CD recordings can be found on Bruce's Fingers, Emanem, FMR, Rayon, Leo, PSI and Not Two."-Not Two
