Rosie Val

Rosie Val SwingtetRosie Val

The Rosie Val Swingtet is a splinter group from the Cambridge Jazz Co. consisting of guitar, bass, drums, trumpet, clarinet/saxaphone; led and managed by Rosie Val (vocals).Val acquired the nickname "Rosie", in Holland, where on numerous occasions she was presented with a single red rose at the end of a song. She was so touched by this gesture that she took to wearing a rose on every performance. From then on Val was called "Rosie" by the band.

As the name of the group implies, swing is the style, hot jazz in the more mainstream idiom, incorporating jazz standards and songs of the 1940s plus.
