Artemis at Lafayette College
The high-wire artistry achieved by this supergroup defies expectation. A bona fide “Who’s Who” of jazz, Artemis brings together six distinct personalities renowned for their solo compositional and performing careers: pianist and musical director Renee Rosnes, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, alto saxophonist and flutist Alexa Tarantino, tenor sax player Nicole Glover, bassist Noriko Ueda, and drummer Allison Miller. Together, a chemistry born of individual character bursts forth, creating a stunningly eclectic yet entirely cohesive flow. From the Newport Jazz Festival to Carnegie Hall, Artemis astounds with an “extremely cosmopolitan, sleek, rhythm-forward, modern sound” (NPR Music).
