[Just in case, you missed it]… Disparate Parts is the third outing by saxophonist-composer Roxy Coss

In 2018, the Roxy Coss Quintet established its sound. Today, the band is evolving its concept. Disparate Parts (Outside in Music), the anticipated follow up to Coss’ acclaimed quintet release Quintet (2019), features familiar personnel in a brand new context: Coss on tenor and soprano saxophone, Alex Wintz on guitar, Miki Yamanaka on piano and keyboards, Rick Rosato on bass and Jimmy Macbride on drums. Known for their conversational expression, the artists approach fresh ideas with a sacred connection to their tradition-informed identity.

Together, they navigate new harmony, rhythmic modulations, and wildly diverse textures across 14 tracks of original music framing the impetus for the album: Coss’ four-movement suite, “The Body,” “The Mind,” “The Heart” and “The Spirit.” Recorded by Chris Sulit at Trading 8s Studio, and mixed, mastered and associate produced by Johannes Fischer, Disparate Parts creates a kaleidoscope of sound that serves the quintet’s bold, ever-refining expression. Distinct gestures join together to form extended ideas and permutations without surrendering their respective characters. ~Editorial Review | Amazon
