• ADVENTURE IN SOUND


  • Adventure In Sound presents completely improvised sets of music drawing on a wide range of influences, sounds and atmospheres both electric and acoustic.

    Since 2008, the group has put on a number of performances in the Boston area and for a year and half held a monthly residence at The Outpost 186 in Cambridge, MA all the while building an intense and loyal following. 

    In 2011, Adventure In Sound continued its move forward by presenting shared bills with brilliant innovators such as Ben Monder, Bill McHenry and David Fiuczynski at the legendary Johnny D’s Uptown in Somerville, MA. Look for more Adventure In Sound performances in the Boston area soon!

At the age of 17 both Downbeat magazine and California Music Educators Association voted Phil "Best Jazz Soloist".

  • JOSH ROSEN
    Keyboards, Effects

    "I've composed since the age of 14—or even younger—and have always improvised. When I sit down at the piano, both those things almost always come out, and they feed each other. About eight years ago I started a class called New Music Improvisation that's not based on songs, like jazz is; it can be based on anything. Some of it is just free improvisation. Some of it is based on images, or reactions to poetry, or even specific instructions I give. We go into that area where jazz and classical merge, where the labels fall away and it could be any kind of style."

  • DAVID TRONZO
    Slide Guitar

    David Tronzo has devoted most of his life to music since he first became mesmerized by it as a youthful rock influenced teenager in the summer of 1970. He has literally and figuratively “traveled far” from his beginnings in rural Rochester, New York, where he was born in 1957, steadily honing his skills as a self-taught student to his modern-day evolution to becoming a world-renowned slide guitar musician and teacher.
