David Roos Plays Jazz Guitar in a wide variety of settings solo, duo and trio. For the last year David has been honing his solo jazz guitar concept 3 nights a week at the Aster Cafe (during the summer months June-September) David was leader of the Crystal Trio for Crystal Cruise Lines on their inaugural voyage from L.A to London and is a founding member of the Twin Cities Jazz collective "the illicit sextet" For solo work David specializes in the popular American song book and is currently studying polarity theory as it pertains to this set of famous American composers and uses these tunes as a vehicle for melodic and inventive improvisations. -----------The Press has been kind "David Roos takes a meaty solo..introduces "New Entangoments" in a manner that would have raised Astor Piazolla's eyebrows" Midwest Jazz magazine--------- "David Roos offers a whole other spectrum of melodic possibility not to mention a penchant for contrapuntal experimentation that keeps listeners on their toes" City Pages ----------" Roos provides tracks filled with fun and surprise"----"Improvisation with hints of Wes Montgomery and Grant Green--- Exquisite Jim Hallish solo readings" Jazz Police ----------"When Dave plays everyone sits down and listens" Artists Quarter WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT AN UPCOMING SHOW !!!
