Album Notes
TREATS FOR THE NIGHTWALKER is the long-heralded sophomore record from veteran jazz and groove master Josh Roseman. Josh was named top "rising star" in the 2003 Down Beat Critics' poll and is well known for his trombone work with MMW, Soulive, Steve Coleman, Me'shell, Mike Gordon, Dave Douglas, the Groove Collective, many others.

Roseman has appeared on over fifty albums as a sideman and NIGHTWALKER is his most complete statement to date as a leader. It's a rich and funky disc, with arrangements and production that push the groove genre to the breaking point. Influences include Squarepusher, Wayne Shorter, Sun Ra and Bjork.

Nightwalker was recorded live with a huge cast of musicians, including guest artists Chris Potter and Billy Kilson (of the Dave Holland quintet,) Peter Apfelbaum (Heiroglyphics ensemble, Trey Anastasio band) and Jon Maron and Barney Mcall of the Groove Collective.

Cool Scenes
Josh how do you do it dude? Not sure how you get the results you do BIG MAN? You play like a powerful force of nature. Your Trombone is like a Viagra inspired organ. Not that your band is a bunch of chopped liver either man. No way. I would rate this a 3 STARS rating. Pretty cool stuff. Keep it going. You are a real pro Josh Roseman Unit.

Charles Smith

This CD is a breath of fresh air!
To hear a trombone upfront and personal is truly refreshing. The harmonies and love that is found in every cut takes you to a different place. It is one of the best jazz CDs I've heard in a long time.


Soothing to the mind. MMW would agree.


[Roseman] will most definitely make an indelible mark on 21st century jazz.


He has really made an amazing statement with the music, which grooves and creates great atmospheres, and melodies and arrangements that are so now and totally happening.


'Cherry' was good fun but gave little indication of where [Roseman] would end up on his new 'Treats for the Nightwalker', on which he applies a rich orchestral palette to those funk essentials... The pieces are relatively long...but they never tire. Tempos downshift, new harmonic vistas open up... Funk grooves anchor just about every cut, but they're never predictable (it helps that the remarkable Billy Kilson, of Dave Holland's bands, handles drums on several tracks).


A sprawling, many-faceted outing. It'll probably take a hundred spins to absorb it all. If it were a novel, you'd call it Dickensian (or better yet, Pynchon-esque) in its scope. This ambitious project succeeds in grand fashion.


Roseman, leader of the crew responsible for the very sexy and smart 'Treats for the Nightwalker'...brings the trombone out of anachronism and into the future of jazz...Roseman and his Unit arrive with a sinuous, seductive sound that massages the mind and moves the butt.


A fusion of this kind has never sounded better. All this and a loose, soulful, partylicious vibe carried out by a punchy horn section makes 'Treats' something that is both very unique and quite fun.
