• Show Bio for Jay Rosen
"Jay Rosen (born November 20, 1961) is an American jazz drummer. He is a member of Trio X with Joe McPhee and Dominic Duval and performs in Cosmosomatics with Sonny Simmons.
At age 10, Rosen became interested in jazz drumming after seeing Tony Williams perform with Sonny Rollins. He took lessons from Tracy Alexander, son of Mousey Alexander (with an occasional lesson from the elder Alexander). Later, he would study briefly with Barry Altschul.
Around age 18, Rosen became a professional musician. He worked at studios, weddings, and cocktail lounges in rock, rhythm and blues, country, jazz, and Brazilian music. His recording career in improvised music began in the mid-1990s, when he recorded Split Personality (GM Records) with Mark Whitecage and Dominic Duval. He began an association with the CIMP label in 1996, and has also recorded for Cadence). Todd Jenkins describes Rosen and Duval as the "house rhythm section" for CIMP, given the number of recordings on which they have appeared.:231
Since 1998, Rosen has performed with Joe McPhee and Dominic Duval in Trio X.:360 In 2000, he joined Cosmosomatics, a quartet with saxophonists Sonny Simmons and Michael Marcus and bassist William Parker.:114

"Trio X first worked together as part of a 1998 CIMPhonia (CIMP 175 and 178) gathering with Paul Smoker, Mark Whitecage, David Prentice, and Peter Kowald from which they carved out their group, Trio X, and made their first recording (The Watermelon Suite, CIMP 183). Roulette at Location One is their eighth recording and the latest release.
This session is a beautiful representation of Trio X's brilliant use of theme development, emotional impact, and thoughtful musicality. It's a hell of a ride."-Cadence Jazz Records
