Terry Vosbein

TERRY VOSBEIN was born into a musical family in the musical city of New Orleans. He spent his first decades immersed in the world of jazz composition and performance, playing and writing and learning.

His suite for jazz nonet, Come And Get It, has received performances in the US, France and Canada.

In 2008 he spent seven months living in Paris and Copenhagen creating music for twenty-piece big band. Some of these new compositions can be found on the CD Progressive Jazz 2009, featuring the Knoxville Jazz Orchestra (Max Frank Music)....

“Progressive Jazz in the best sense of the word: advanced, forward-moving and enlightening but in no way pretentious or self-absorbed,” according to reviewer Jack Bowers at All About Jazz. The Knoxville Jazz Orchestra is “remarkably accomplished, and takes to these demanding charts like ducks to water.”

“A masterful and emotionally rewarding tribute,” says Owen Cordle at Newsobserver.com of Progressive Jazz 2009.
