Roxy Coss

Musician/Composer Roxy Coss has become one of the most unique and innovative Saxophonists of her generation, a definitional voice of the Millennial Movement in Jazz. Winner of a 2016 ASCAP Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award, the 2016, 2015 & 2014 Downbeat Critics’ Polls listed her on the “Rising Star” list for Soprano Saxophone. Originally from Seattle, and now a fixture on the New York scene, she has performed extensively around the world. In January, Coss released her sophomore recording as a leader, Restless Idealism, on Origin Records, featuring 10 original compositions; the follow-up to her self-titled debut, Roxy Coss (2010)

”Coss has been refining a style that is intricate and sincere, intelligent yet accessible.” - BRIAN ZIMMERMAN, DownBeat Magazine

”Easily the next hot modern jazz star for Generation Now.” - Christopher Llewellyn Adams, Cashbox Magazine ”Just like Coltrane, Coss achieves a perfect balance of lyricism and intensity in her improvisations through a superb sense of timing, rhythmic and harmonic structure.” - Wilbert Sostre, All About Jazz ”[Coss plays with the] unassuming clarity and wise restraint of an oldtimer with nothing to prove... I plumb forgot I was listening to a record, swept away on the emotional journey.” - David Wilson, Wilson & Alroy Reviews
