      The three stars is for the service, not for the group. The group gets all five. The sound kept cutting out so that for at least 25% of the program we could not hear the music. However, I like the ability to listen to a concert online. Keep working on it.

JONATHAN ROWDEN is a jazz saxophonist and composer in Los Angeles, and is described as a unique new talent who has exploded into the diverse Los Angeles jazz scene. Jonathan strives for a vision of improvised music that spans beyond traditional genres under the jazz umbrella, and explores new territory, drawing from his eclectic taste and background in classical, pop, rock, jazz, and many styles in-between. His melodic lyricism, rhythmic acuity, and a fiery passion for the experiment make him a kindred voice to the listener, and his unique, participatory approach to group improvisation takes listeners on a journey beyond listening, and into truly engaging in the moment.

THE JONATHAN ROWDEN GROUP is a new instrumental quartet that smashes through traditional dichotomies between form and freedom. At the core of their ethos is a honed interplay between structured, original composition and free improvisation that is a tumultuous balance between fever pitched madness, tender spiritual softness, the absurd, and the profound. Their eclectic synthesis of styles and forms spans the emotional gamut from serene calmness to brutalizing intensity, and has quickly deemed them to be among Los Angeles’ most distinctive, cohesive, and original new voices. Their debut record "BECOMING" was released under Daniel Rosenboom’s boutique label Orenda Records on May 27th, 2014 and is receiving acclaim from listeners and critics alike.
