Roxy Coss

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm and 9:30pm nightly

Winner of a 2016 ASCAP Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award and a “Rising Star” in three consecutive Down Beat critics’ polls, saxophonist Roxy Coss has used her academic and sideman credentials as a springboard to an auspicious career as a bandleader, composer, and recording artist. Fresh from performing with her group at the prestigious 2016 Newport Jazz Festival, Roxy has also performed at clubs and theaters across the U.S., – as a leader, with the Mingus Big Band, and with the Diva Jazz Orchestra, and in the groups of Jeremy Pelt, who joins her onstage for this engagement. “As a player, on tenor and soprano saxophones, she possesses a poise and maturity beyond her years,” wrote Josef Woodward in his Down Beat review of her latest album Restless Idealism, which she releases tonight at Jazz Standard. “She’s also a composer of diverse instincts and a strong bandleader.”
