MUSIC: The Instrumental Performance Program presents visiting artist Daniel Rosenboom, as part of the Performance Forum.
Daniel Aaron Rosenboom is a creative and prolific trumpet artist, composer, and producer. Named the “Face To Watch” in Jazz for 2013 by the Los Angeles Times, he has been recognized with grants and awards from ASCAP, the Yvar Mikhashoff Trust for New Music, the American Composers Forum, and the Meet the Composer foundation.
Rosenboom has recorded six full-length albums under his own name, and the most recent, Fire Keeper, will be released on Orenda Records on March 18th, 2014. Additionally, he has released three full-length albums with his “hardcore-Balkan-jazz-rock” group PLOTZ!, four full-length albums with his “spontaneous composition” jazz-rock group DR. MiNT, and has appeared as a featured collaborator on albums by Vinny Golia, Harris Eisenstadt, Trevor Anderies, Dorian Wood, David Rosenboom, RootSystem, Geoff Gallegos’s NineNet, Killsonic, Got Monk?, and The Industrial Jazz Group.
Daniel has toured the world as the trumpet soloist for multi-platinum pop superstar, Josh Groban, and has appeared as a soloist and collaborator on festivals and in recitals. Daniel plays regularly with The Daniel Rosenboom Quintet and Septet, PLOTZ!, the Vinny Golia Sextet, DR. MiNT, and the Modern Brass Quintet. As a classical freelance musician and noted interpreter of modern and avant-garde music, he regularly performs with some of the elite groups and musicians in Los Angeles, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group, Monday Evening Concerts, and many of the regional orchestras in the LA area.
In January of 2013 he founded Creative Underground Los Angeles, a collective of musicians, visual artists, dancers, and writers focused on the rapid and consistent production of high-quality, inter-disciplinary fringe art, and the galvanization of a thriving but often disparate scene of creative, experimental artists.
In January of 2014, he founded his own record label, Orenda Records, in an effort to promote his community of like-minded musicians.
Daniel holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music, UCLA, and California Institute of the Arts.
