David's concerto for
orchestra & African xylophones
David Rogers, saxophonist, composer & Jumbie Records recording artist


"[A] visionary jazz and world-music saxophonist/composer."
—Hartford Courant

“A relentless seeker with an eye beyond borders... Rogers' saxophone work and overall outlook bring to mind no less than John Coltrane.”

"Rhythmically vital… a fluid Afropop-jazz-classical hybrid!"
—The New York Times

“An astonishing piece of work. Perhaps the world has now caught up with David Rogers.”
—Brian Morton, co-author, Penguin Guide to Jazz

“When Rogers and Stone duel it out on lunndogo talking drums in their “Travelogue,” you might as well be in the heart of an alternative African universe’s own Bonnaroo jam-band land.”
—Global Rhythm Magazine

“Not only a powerful jazz statement, but a musical statement, one of the best to come out this year.”
—Music for America

"What delight to hear a tenorist with a fresh and different sound… Rogers dishes out tenor playing here that cuts through all the tired jazz clichés… This is world fusion jazz at its finest."
—Ted Gioia,

"Rogers is the kind of saxophonist that someone like the late Michael Brecker would be proud of, someone willing to test their limits by playing without them."
—Music for America

"A superb piece of work… Congrats to David and the band for making a truly great recording, one that defines what jazz is today."
—Maurice Hogue, CKUW-FM

"Wild, eye-opening music… [Rogers] emerges with his most passionate playing… wailing over the pulsing rhythms."
—Cadence Magazine
