Nick Rosen - Into The Sky
(CD/LP+7"/Download) Porter Records PRCD-4048/PRLP-015, 2010-07-20

Nick Rosen describes his first full-length offering, Into the Sky, as being, "a musical celebration of the interconnectedness of all people and places. The songs are by themselves their own universe," he says, "but at the same time they are all connected to the idea of togetherness, and to forming one beautiful, magical entity." On the recording Rosen plays guitar, Rhodes piano, upright and electric bass, and synths throughout and sings on 3 tracks. He's joined by producer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on piano, violin, viola and upright bass. The two worked on the beautiful arrangements featured flying a top Rosen's original compositions. With influences ranging from Sam Cooke, John Coltrane, and The Beatles to Horace Tapscott and J Dilla, Rosen is well aware that he has to put his heart into everything he does. Above all, while listening to Into the Sky, you're bound to hear just that, heart! And oh, how refreshing that is!

Before receiving his BFA from California Institute of the Arts, with a double major in classical and jazz bass, in May, 2007, (under the mentorship of Darek Oles, Peter Rofe and Charlie Haden,) Rosen had already been playing around Los Angeles with jazz luminaries such as bassist Henry Grimes, reedsman Bennie Maupin and saxophonist Arthur Blythe, as well as experimental guitarist Nels Cline and multi-instrumentalist Wadada Leo Smith, among many others. He's played in a wide variety of rock, soul and jazz bands since his days at Oakwood High School, (where he is currently a bass teacher,) near his home town of Sherman Oaks, California. Rosen also plays regularly with The Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, Build An Ark, and other world renowned ensembles based in Los Angeles, including his own group The Nick Rosen Group.
