The beginning of 2017 saw Barbara in a guest appearance at The Ohio State Jazz Ensemble’s concert, followed by a Master Class with Barbara and piano virtuoso Dave Powers.
In October of 2016, Barbara Rosene and her trio performed on the brand new beautiful, Louisiane Riverboat on a tip from New Orleans to Memphis. More riverboat cruises in 2017 will be announced shortly.
In December of 2016 Barbara’s Jazz Club Series of paintings were on exhibition at XContemporary Art Fair in Miami in association with Art Basel. Her booklet of paintings and essays is available at: www.barbararosenepaintings.com
Barbara still tours with The Harry James Orchestra, led by Fred Radke. They have performed all over America and Canada including The Montreal Jazz Festival. Last year included a gorgeous performance at The Foxwood Casino in Connecticut. Barbara also performs with the wonderful pianists Conal Fowkes, and Ehus Asherie, guitar master James Chirillo, legendary violinist Andy Stein and many other world famous musicians regularly.
2017 brings more performances at the much revered Mezzrow Jazz Club in NYC, gigs at Nightgown in her hometown of Cleveland and at the fabulous new club Blujazz in Akron, Ohio. One more recording is in the works- possibly on vinyl, and a new radio series entitled “In Search Of Tin Pan Alley” is beginning to take wing. It will begin with two small stations in Barbara’s home state of Ohio and hopefully blossom into much more.
Stay tuned for great music in 2017.
