"A musician dedicated to exploration and expression, regardless of anyone's imagined boundaries."
— Chris Barton, Los Angeles Times
“Daniel Rosenboom’s writing and the sound of the ensemble is unlike anything heard before. This is jazz for the 21st century.”
— Scott Yanow, author of thousands of articles for the All Music Guide to Jazz
"One of the most original, exciting, adventurous groups in L.A. right now."
— Gary Fukushima, LA Weekly
The phrase "Unsayable Absence" is taken from a Rumi poem entitled "Listening." This poem is appropriately inscribed on the ceiling of the Blue Whale directly above the stage. For me the "unsayable absence" is the space in one's heart that opens when ego is purged - a space where the energy of the universe can enter, grow, and ultimately transport one to a higher state of consciousness.
