About the album

Best known for her work with trumpeter Jeremy Pelt's group, New York saxophonist / composer Roxy Coss developed the compositions and group concept for her second recording during a three-year residency of her Quintet at New York's famed Smoke Jazz Club. With Pelt on trumpet, long-time band members guitarist Alex Wintz and pianist Chris Pattishall, and the dynamic duo of bassist Dezron Douglas and drummer Willie Jones III, Roxy's created a thoughtful, highly emotive and undeniably fearless recording. Inspired by the Jazz Messengers, Wayne Shorter, and Kurt Rosenwinkel's group with Mark Turner, Coss further defines her own unique voice through these ten original compositions.

Roxy Coss has become one of the most unique and innovative saxophonists of her generation, and a definitional voice of the Millennial Movement in Jazz. The 2015 & 2014Downbeat Critics’ Poll named Roxy a "Rising Star" on Soprano Saxophone. Originally from Seattle, and now a fixture on the New York scene, she has performed extensively around the world.

In January 2016, Coss will release her sophomore recording, Restless Idealism (Origin Records), the follow up to her self-titled debut, Roxy Coss (2010). The album features 10 original compositions played by her band, The Roxy Coss Quintet. As a leader, Coss has performed at many of New York’s top venues, such as Smalls, Zinc Bar, and SMOKE Jazz Club. At SMOKE, the band was in weekly residence from 2012-2013. This summer, she also headlined at the famous Jazz Showcase in Chicago, and was a featured act at the 2015 Ballard Music Festival in Seattle, WA.
