Benjy Fox-Rosen is a bass player living in Brooklyn, New York City. He moved from Los Angeles in 2002 to attend the New School for Jazz and Contemporary music, where he had the opportunity to study with Mark Helias, Mark Dresser and Jane Ira Bloom among others. After studying in Buenos Aires in the Fall of 2005 with maestro Javier Dragun, Benjy returned to NY to finish school and immediately joined the Luminescent Orchestrii, a gypsy/tango/klezmer/punk string band based in Brooklyn. Since then, Benjy has toured internationally performing throughout the United States and Europe. Benjy was a recipient of the Bronfman Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Student Artists in 2007, for “Minutn fun Bitokhn” his suite melding Yiddish songs with improvised and composed music. He was pleased to include in his band Judith Berkson, Noah Kaplan and Juan Pablo Carletti. Benjy also serves as Cantorial Soloist at the Jewish Home and Hospital in the Bronx.
