Rosi Hertlein

Violinist and singer Rosi Hertlein divides her devotion between the worlds of classical music, free improvisation and jazz. Her work in recent years includes collaborations with Joe McPhee, Pauline Oliveros, Reggie Workman, Howard Johnson, David Taylor, Vincent Chancey and others. Her acclaimed CD, ROSI HERTLEIN’S IMPROVISING CHAMBER ENSEMBLE (ICE) “Two Letters I’ll Keep” got released in November 2001. She also recorded as special guest on Joe McPhee’s “TRIO X” CD, “Rapture.”   “Rapture is hijacked by the astonishing violinist and singer Rosi Hertlein who is destined for great things.” (Penguin Guide for Jazz CD’s, Fifth Edition) “… Her earlier participation on Trio X’s ‘Rapture,’ another Cadence-funded release offered the impetus for this debut as a leader. The assemblage of New York based players that takes to Hertlein’s challenging and deceptive charts with a concentrative zeal repays the faith in her.” (Derek Taylor, Both recordings, “Rapture” and “Two Letters I’ll Keep,” are available through Cadence Jazz Records, Cadence Building, Redwood, NY 13674, Tel.: 315/287-2852, Fax: 315/287-2860 or on the web at
